Will not accel, tells zero.
the engine has weak power?
or the transmission slips?
or will not up shift the 4 gears.

any mechanic can drive the car and in 5 min tell you which it is.

if the ENGINE RPM rises and the vehicle speed does not
increase in direct (transmission) relation to engine RPM then the transmission is slipping
or if the transmission does not upshift say so.
if the transmission is not slipping and will not ACCEL.
then the engine is bad, weak.

why not, take it to a shop and ask them to test it.
any ASE certified shop will tell you, some for free.

    it just stops and goes into a coasting like feel i can press the gas all the way down nothing happens at first then it will rev high and act normal. there are no suzkui shops close to me and i am finding that many places won't touch it due to lack of knowledge about the car, most people i have taken it too just give me personal opinions. i did have a P0420 code two weeks ago that is now gone dont know if that would make a difference.

    why do you feel; like suzuki shops are necessary, they are after all chapter 11'd , id bet you never asked a real shop, one with men and woman with ASE on their sleeves. they get in car, an tell you, bad trans or weak engine in 5min. flat. is the when car wont go does transmission slip, and engine RPM rises with no forward motion, that is called tranny slip or FLAIR, is it just stuck in first gear,, if you cant tell or articulate thise, no blind person on the net can either. I wonder, are suzuki's going the way of Yugo's????

    My 06 Verona did the same thing, the Suzuki dealer could not figure it took 3 ECMs and a full body wiring harness, niether of these worked. The car would do the same thing, I finally just decided to pull my Throttle body apart (replace it or clean it) I just cleaned mine with carb cleaner and it works great now

    nogo , not must to go on, and he cause, is manifest. answser one question, you can go in any gear,? and does the engine rpm SCREAM. high,like neutral while in drive or reverse, that is slip . if all fuses are good, and the scan tool shows no Dtc ERRORS,trans is bad. these sensor is used from 1 to 2 gear and higher not starting from 0 mph, if fact it will shift with it missing, and will do that in limphome mode, poorly, if car has TCM, if no TCM THE next check is line pressure, the FSm ANSWERS THAT,EACH STEP, need on? seems like other postes mech,is non ASE TECh, clue less ,

    many cause, but the tests are easy and fast. want to guess with 06 or test, BtW,, these cars with drive by wire do not stop 1st gear, but do limit speed via many ways, if the 4 TPS sensors ever disagree. and is NOT your problem, askwhy.

    goto (goggle it) suzuki pit stop dot com then read tranny page, for 4 bucks, see "on car tests" BINGO! and post RPM of engine in drive, 800 or 3000? RPM, right foot planted, for 1 second. (no kids pets) this is called a stall test, and is test 1 in the the FSM, really

SOURCE: Acceleration

Is the check enigne light on?

If not then it could be a trans issue. Check the fluid again to make sure it is level. put the truck on level ground and with it running and in park check the fluid. Add fluid if needed to bring to level. Then test drive. If it still does the same check the fluid level after driving to see if it REALLY hot. If so it could be a sign the tranmission is failing.

Onyl other thing i can think of have you replaced the tranmission filter? if it was really clogged up it may, long shot, cause what you are saying as well.

SOURCE: Transmission sticking

most people say no to a high mileage transmission flush if it hasnt been done before on the vehicle, I say if it starts to slip then flush it but if it is just sticking whop the old lucas trans mission oil to her! they have it at advanced it should free up those sticky valves! but if you havnt flushed it before now i would'nt
it is believed that over time your transmission fluid gets "gritty" from the clutches wearing , and over time your transmission becomes reliant on that grit to run "smoothly" I've done it and it came out fine but that was due to slipping from thin or burnt transmission fluid,
I would really try an additive to free up the valves before i'd do a flush!

SOURCE: Changing transmission fluid for 06 Kia Sedona

Transmissions these days need very little maintenance, our fluids are advanced formulas that hold up for an average of 100,000 miles, most vehicle manufactures recommend no maintenance for automatic transaxles these days.As for a transmission flush I don't recommend this because it's an expense that is not needed and possibly could loosen some contaminants setting them loose to possibly clog some of the very small passages in the transaxle requiring full transaxle service,which could include removal,dissassembly,etc of your trans.Now draining and replacing fluid is OK if that makes you feel a peace of mind but normally not needed,if you decide to do that,as far as quantity just note approx. how much fluid is drained and purchase similar amount in quarts and then refill (DO NOT OVERFILL)
start engine, let it warm up to operating temp,then check the transmission dipstick for the correct level,remember the vehicle needs to be on a level surface,hot idiling in park when you check the fluid level. Good luck !

2006 suzkui verona is jearking has been slow to accelerate in past alson has 2 p0420 codes

You may need transmission serviced. Goto Midas, I believe it's free to check vechicle on OBD Scanner. If they find a problem they'll let you know exactly what codes they get. Either you can have someone you know fix or they can fix.

Bit of a loaded question, however, is the check engine light on?

If so, list the code. You can get the code for free from Advance Auto or Autozone, although, it's just a code to get going in the right direction.

Could be a variety of problems. Could be the transmission range sensor (because the Verona uses the same sensor as the Forenza and the Reno and is a very common issue) or something more serious, such as a failing transmission.

I hate to say it, but, on something like this, I'd drop a few bucks to have it diagnosed by a reputable shop. $70 in diagnoses could save you more if you were to just try to swapping out parts. Plus, any repair shop should be willing to roll that $70 into the repair should you choose to repair it instead of just making it extra.

At what mileage should i have a 2004 suzuki verona transmission fluid flushed and changed? it currently has 46,000 miles on it.

ALL VEHICLES---- get their transmissions & power steering
changed,NOT FLUSHED every 30,000 miles ALWAYS

Flushing will cause problems
Do not flush --- no reason to

Replacing all the fluid, will sometimes put
a problem in, that was not there before

Suzuki Verona 05- where do I refill the transmission fluid?

The 04 to 06 verona does not have a transmission dipstick, it is filled with a life time transmission fluid and thus does not need to be filled. If you have leaks and are concerned about the level there is a fill plug. BEWARE these transmissions do no use off the shelf ATF, Check with suzuki for the correct fluid and be sure to bring your checkbook

Transmission Service Required message

They are correct as to the Location of the Sensor and, It would be a Time Consuming and Expensive Repair But, If you are not getting the Red Caution Light I would have the Tranny Flushed and Filled and see if it is not Just Buildup on the Sensor. It could actually Release itself. If not you will eventually have to get a Rebuild Buut, Try the Flush and Fill First.
