When i turn the headlights on the time on the clock dims

That happens on a lot of cars. It's natural because of the amount of juice the headlights draw. Only thing you can really do is to adjust the dimmer switch on your dash. All 3 of my cars do that.

My car will not idle by itself...and to start it i have to put my foot on the gas pedal. i have to keep my foot on the pedal a little bit to keep it running by itself, but only for a little while....

There seems to be several issues. Can't say a lot about the gauges not working except that relays power groups of equipment functions and if a relay does not provide power then the gauges can't work.

For a fast idle, a sequence called the "cold start sequence" is suppose to increase idle. This is triggered by an engine temperature sensor. Some cars have 2 with one working the dash gauges and the other is used to work the engine controls. Yours is likely either sending a signal that the engine is hot (and it is not) or the signal is missing.

When the engine knows it is cold, the idle will speed up until the engine is warm.

The dim headlights can be dim from a power drain, or the engine is not idling fast enough to charge.

How do I replace a front headlamp on my 1995 ford escort. The car was given to my daughter, but we didn't get the manual.\r\n Thank you

If it is burnt out , you just replace the bulb , not the whole headlight. You access it from the engine compartment without removing the headlight itself.
Most likely it will just take a 1/4 turn counterclockwise to remove. Headlight bulbs dim over time , so it's a good idea to replace them both at the same time. A friendly auto parts store might even do it for you.

How do I change the timing belt on a 1995 suzuki swift

Timing belt replacement is specific to each car. Get a Haynes manual to do this. Occasionally special tools are required. The big thing to remember is if you adjust the timing incorrectly you can trash the engine if the piston and valves meet. Haynes manual available at autozone for around $20. Haynes manual is one of the best investment you can make in working on your car. I like them better than the Chilton manuals. Chilton manual tend to assume more knowledge on the part of the user. If you are the type of person who is going to do lots of your own maintenance it does not hurt to have both manuals as depending on the job at hand one may provide better information.

My 1995 Suzuki Swift floods at startup untill the engine warms up

Check for vacuum leaks. WIth the engine running, wiggle all hoses around and listen for a hissing sound. Look for a cracked broken or loose hose.

Head Lights

If only the headlights are dull and not putting out the correct light, I would suspect a bad ground (earth) connection somewhere in the headlight circuit or the fuse for the headlight circuit. Something is causing excessive resistance and causing less voltage to be provided for the headlights. If all the lights are dimly lit, then I would check the charging system, the battery and the ground cable for the battery, chassis, and engine.
