Question about Cars & Trucks

The coolant reservoir tank keep leaking on my 2006 Suzuki Reno. What could be causing this? It is nearly 100 degrees out so I am using the AC continuously which also causes me to lose full engine strength when first going from a stop & especially going up hills. I have to shut the AC off to go up a hill at a reasonable speed. What could be causing this also or is it just typical cause of the use of the AC?

If it's coming out of the cap seal it could be the thermostat needs replacing or you have a leak in a cylinder pumping air into the water system, would need more info, is the fan kicking in to cool engine down ? should kick in around 92c and 96c 96c is full fan speed 92c is slow speed.

You have three very separate problems and in my opinion not linked.

Coolant loss can only be from a few places, and certainly coolant should not go down.
Bad joints on the reservoir itself, or a split pipe.
A leak in the radiator. This is the most likely, or a leaking hose.
A worn filler cap to the radiator that is letting coolant out under pressure.

Losing coolant does not affect Air Conditioning.

Air Conditioning uses very little of the available power on the serpentine belt. Use of AC has no bearing on your vehicle not being able to go up hills. The engine overheating and about to seize would affect power.

Check your whole engine for coolant leaks. The best way is a pressure test on a cold stationary vehicle.

Your lack of power is something else. A diagnostic tune up should fix that problem, also reviewing if there are any fault codes to sensors.

The vehicle is a 2 litre 4 cylinder vehicle, so may be underpowered if you have 4 persons in the vehicle.

How can I drain gas from 2006 Suzuki Reno


happy holidays.
what is the job? draining gas from what.?
I asks this because, step one in all EFI is do the FSM book
stated fuel pressure relief step, (or get a bath in fuel, or worse)
tank ?
lines?
filter?
regulator?
fuel rail.?
my guess is tank? (got 12vdc to pump cranking "grin")
the book shows how to do that for $4
it will tell you , to use siphon hose to drain it. and how.
or a shop fuel pump capturing system, we don't know what tools you have, or willing to buy so cant guess that.
some cars have a check valve at the bottom of the tank fill hose
to prevent roll over leaks, and or theft of fuel. (siphoning)
what your car has , can vary, by year, country, or engine options.
so it's best to RTM , read the manual.
$4
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1066-2006-forenza-reno-service-manual.aspx

my guess is you cant drive it near empty?
or
hot wire the pump, with battery 12v power, Unplugged !
and main fuel line disconnected and hose to it and to a large capture
tank , larger that supply in main tank now.....
ask. (or google that, no lack of examples on the net, not at all)

Need to fill coolant reservoir every day with antifreeze, check engine light on & flashing


The flashing light means there is a problem with the engine serious enough to damage the catalytic converter. You should get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
If there are no external coolant leaks, the engine is probably burning the coolant thru the cylinders and out the tail pipe. Which could also be causing the flashing light.

Temp gauge in 2006 Suzuki Reno is going to H all of a sudden. Also check engine light is on... can you help?


Jacky, that is double posted. back up one and read.
but now its high.
why not check cooling levels, if low the guage will wag high and low.
that is because the gauge cant measure AIR temp, (air in system)
1: engine dead COLD , do not do this on any hot engine.
2: open RAD cap, remove it.
3: gander down in the rad cap hole, see the AF fluid there.
4: is full of AF (antifreeze coolant) YES /NO.
5: if no , the and the proper coolant , do NOT GUESS.
do not mix AF types. or vary bad will happen.

the side overfill tanks on all cars can lie. they can fail or just mess up.
the engine and RAD must be full AND the side tank 1/2 full cold.
all 3. not just one thing.
that is how its done.

no engine option stated, so must answer in the generic, lots of engine options, and not all are the same, not even close.

Over heating not leaking coolant but hove to add coolant not in oil


A blown cylinder head gasket may cause this. Also check for uneven surface of the cylinder head.

2006 Reno Leaking water from a plate that mounts on the end of the head. Changed gasket there and resurfaced plate because it was warped very bad. Still have a leak from the same place. Any Ideas


Try fish tank silicon i think its called V7 or the genuine toyota black stuff is good but almost $30 a tube. make sure surfaces are totaly dry & clean & let cure a couple of days before adding water. Maybe also make your own gasket from thicker material.
