Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

2 Answers

Engine noise At initial start, the engine making a noise and gradually stop after 2 minutes of being started. However, during acceleration the noise comes back and eventually stops after I've reached a level speed. The dealership doesn't know what the problem is. I just recently paid $700 for a power steering pump. Otherwise, the car runs fine.

Hi there. There might be a number of things to consider here, but the two worst things (most expensive) that it might be is either piston slap or crank rumble. Now, given that you have changed the power steering pump, it sounds like you might have an external noise and so my advice prior to you having changed the power steering pump would have been to disconnect the pump belt firstly. If the noise was still there, then there is nothing wrong with the power steer system. So you must now do the same with the alternator and A/C pump belts. Have all the belt drives (apart form the cambelt of course) disconnected - if the noise goes away, you have narrowed down the problem area. If the noise is still there, you probably have crank rumble or piston slap. Best way to diagnose piston slap is during the warm-up period of the engine, this is when the pistons are not quite oval and is effectively lose in the cylnder walls. To determine this the most effective way is to play with the accelerator whilst accelerating gently, accerate and then just back-off on the throttle slightly, if you hear the rattling noise, you can play with the sound by easing back on and off the accelerator. You'd actually do the same for crank rumble, but the difference in sound is the crank rumble will sound heavier whereas the piston slap will sound lighter and of higher tone. If that sounds like what you have (either piston slap or crank rumble) then it really is no big deal and I'd wouldn't worry about it too much. If you do think that this is what you might have, then just make sure you are using the right grade of oil and it's a quality oil and all should be fine. Hope this helps. Scottech.

Cold choke baffle has 3/16 opening minute I pump accelerator choke thermostat closes primary baffle shut no air to start I force choke open to start why insufficient air to run at high idle?


Your engine probably has an automatic choke device that adjusts automatically with engine temperature. To set the choke when the engine is cold you have to depress the accelerator to the floor and release it completely. You shouldn't have to depress the accelerator again to start the engine, turn the key the engine should start. As the engine begins to warm up it will also begin to initially run faster then it will start to run rough. At this point you have to press the accelerator and release it again. The auto choke mechanism should allow the choke butterfly to open. There may be a number of stops in the system and the choke butterfly will stop again still not fully open and only become fully open when the engine is at operating temperature. Hope this answers you question, Rgs. Bob

That could be any number of things but I would suspect that the bearings are going in one of the pulleys driven by the fan belt.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu automatic when it is in first and second gear it makes a knocking sound but when it shifts to third gear it stops I don't think it's a rod knocking because it isn't consent


More information is needed to help with this.

1. Is the knocking coming from the engine, the transmission or elsewhere?

2. If you believe it is from the engine, start the motor and put the auto in neutral and gradually depress the accelerator pedal to gently increase the engine speed for 2 minutes. If you can replicate the knocking noise then obviously it is engine.

3. If the knocking is from the engine check the engine oil level which you should be doing frequently anyhow to ensure you top it up and do not run the oil level low and destroy the motor. (Failure to have the engine oil changed at the required intervals can also result in excessive wear and damage to engine components.) If you do this check and find the oil level is very low then advise here when you repost your query with more information about the source of the knocking sound.

4. Also indicate in your post what grade (octane rating) of fuel you are running the engine on.

Mazda protege makes a squeaking noise when I start driving?


If your Mazda Tribute's engine has a rumbling noise when you start it, this is most likely from the drive belt. You will need to replace it.

I've got a slight ticking noise, but not at start-up. After the engine warms up, it will start out very faint and gradually get louder. After about 2 - 3 minutes, it goes away. This is a High M


This sounds like a tappet (cam follower/rocker arm) is at max clearance. This can be the sign of cam lobe wear or follower wear on its internal clearances or valve tip wear.

Loud Vibration / Sound Under Acceleration And Starting Engine.


Get the engine mounts checked. A bad mount may allow part of the engine to lie on a body or frame part, allowing engine vibrations to become very loud. Torquing of the engine (under load) can cause the same type problems.

What is the drive cycle for a 1999 vw jetta


The drive cycle is as follows
For all OBD2 VW's

OBD-II Drive Cycle Stages
The OBD-II Drive Cycle is an eight-stage course, as illustrated in the
chart on page 3. An explanation of each step is provided below.
Stage 1: Cold Start-The ECM determines the presence of a cold start
by comparing the engine coolant temperature to the ambient air
temperature during startup. The engine is considered cold when:
• Engine coolant temperature is below 122°F (50°C).
• Engine coolant and intake air temperatures are within 11°F (6°C) of
each other at startup.
During this period, the O2S heater, misfire, AIR, fuel system, and EVAP
monitors run.

Stage 2: Idle 2½ Minutes-Turn the air conditioning (A/C) and
headlights on to help the misfire monitor-the additional electrical loads
help even out combustion pulses. During this period, the O2S heater,
AIR, EVAP, misfire, and possibly fuel system (if operating in closed loop)
monitors run.

Stage 3: Accelerate-Prior to accelerating, turn off the A/C and
headlights (if possible). Open the throttle halfway until you reach
55 MPH (89 KPH). During acceleration, the misfire, fuel system, and
EVAP monitors run.

Stage 4: Steady State Cruise-During this portion of the cycle, the
O2S, AIR, EGR, EVAP, misfire, and fuel system monitors run.

Stage 5: Decelerate-Gradually coast down without applying the
brakes. Also, on manual transmission vehicles, remain in high gear and
do not press the clutch. During this period, the EGR, EVAP, and fuel
system monitors run.

Stage 6: Accelerate-Apply ¾ throttle until reaching 60 MPH (97 KPH).
During acceleration, the misfire, fuel system, and EVAP monitors run.

Stage 7: Steady State Cruise-During this period, the CAT, O2S, AIR,
EGR, EVAP, misfire, and fuel system monitors run.

Stage 8: Decelerate-Gradually coast down without applying the
brakes. Also, on manual transmission vehicles, remain in high gear and
do not press the clutch. During this portion of the Drive Cycle, the EGR,
EVAP, and fuel system monitors run.

You can try this a couple times, but if it doesn't work you should go to a VW specialty shop like the dealer or a shop that does mostly European cars and they can use the scan tool to force the car through readiness.

Check your belt. Belts will whine when they're worn, cracked or glazed. I hope this was helpful. It's not normal. Take care and God bless.
