SOURCE: Radiator flush for my suzuki forenza.

For the do-it-yourself kind of mechanic, there is a kit sold by Prestone that will help you back flush the system using an ordinary garden hose. Available at most any auto-parts store, Walmart & such. It has the basic instructions on the container but I'll give you an overview.

You will need a large container to catch the anti-freeze coming out, You could drain it by removing the plug at the bottom of the radiator first , or remove the lower hose & get most of it out & then just flush the remainder, back-flushing is recommended.

There is a piece that fits into the radiator caps position that helps to aim the water towards a container but sometimes you can't use it due to size restrictions & limitations on space & have to catch the fluid with a drain pan as it overflows.

You will need to install a backflush connector "T". You simply cut into one of the 2 heater hoses, preferably the return line, and install that piece using 2 hose clamps to secure it. The garden hose hooks there.

The engine should be cool, you can crack a head or block by drowning a hot engine with ice cold water.

Just turn the water on slowly, once the anti-freeze stops coming out & it's just water, remove the drain pan & recycle what anti-freeze you can. Remember, most anti-freeze is fatal to birds & animals, including large dogs & children, so clean spills or at least dilute it with water until it is not a threat.

once done, drain the system & refill with the mix you prefer for your area, usually not less than a 50/50.

good luck.

How do you check transmission fluid in 2004 Suzuki Forenza

There is no dipstick to check the automatic transmission fluid in the 2004 Suzuki Forenza. It is checked like a manual transmission. You will have to remove the fill plug underneath the car and then add some new transmission fluid until it drizzels out of the hole.

We had the radiator relplace and antifreeze is still leaking on the back side of the engine. They told him it was going to cost another hundred dollars to take a look at the leak. I see three hoses leading...

Sounds like the leak's in the hose from the engine to the heater core - radiator uninvolved.
the hoses from rad are (2) upper & lower hose to/from engine, and 2 smaller hoses to/from the
transmission, to cool the tranny fluid.
I found a de-install/ install guide (with pics) for the 2004 Suzi Forenza at:

What type of anti freeze should I add?

Suzuki forenza uses Green silica based anti-freeze. If you mix the wrong kind with it, it will gum up your thermostat (90 dollars) and potentially mess with some of the smaller cooling fluid tubes and passages. Not to mention, the water pump is not to fond of gritty fluid. So if you see discoloration in the bright green fluid, better drain it, flush the system out with a garden hose for 5 to 10 minutes, and refill it with new fluid.

How do you add transmission fluid on 2004 suzuki forenza. It noip stick.

Welcome to the new era in automatic transmissions - sealed systems with "lifetime" transmission fluid. This is progress???

What makes you believe it needs fluid?

There are ways to drain and add fluid on most of these "sealed" transmissions; however, it involves drain and fill plugs underneath the car. This is not a procedure for do-it-yourselfers.

How do you put transmission fluid in the car. I replaced my radiator and lost transmission fluid and need to replace it.

Big Problem you may not be aware that Suzuki uses special trans fluid, needs to be silica based for import cars. The Transmission is sealed and requires no maintenance for 100,000 miles, and has a 7 year 100k warranty. If you add the wrong fluid, it will mix with and foul up the good fluid causing sticky, sluggish response from the transmission. This would void the warranty, How did you even loose fluid?

Changing transmission fluid

The transmission fill plug is located on the backside of the tranny. (Down by the driver side cv shaft) You must fill it at that point. I have read that the tranny fluid must be bought from the Suzuki Dealer, but I am still looking into that? You should be able to add fluid into that hole until it starts to slowly run back out. Then it is filled to the right amount. ( A lot like a manual trans.) These cars are a money pit. Nice when they are running though. 2004 Suzuki Forenza
