Several things can cause a car to die. The fact that you don't have any engine codes eliminates some of them. First thing you should try if you haven't is change the fuel filter. Make sure there are no damp, or damaged electrical components. It could be faulty spark plugs, or wires, or a vacuum leak. Check carefully under the hood for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wiggle all the vacuum hoses around and check for cracked loose or broken hoses. They will make a hissing sound when you find it. A stethoscope, or a length of fuel line held to your ear can help a lot. Check all intake bolts for tightness too. Good luck.

The gear-shifter solenoid or brakelight switch has failed.

To check the brakelight switch, start the car and step on the brake. If the brakelights don't come on, the switch is faulty. You'll find the switch under the dashboard above the brake pedal.

If the brakelights came on, your shifter solenoid is probably bad. In this case, here's a quick-and-dirty fix to get you moving...

Look for a small plastic cover next to the gear shift. Pop this off with a fingernail or small flat screwdriver. There will be a hole beneath the cover. Push a small screwdwiver down that hole untill you feel some resistance. You should now be able to shift out of park.

Be warned...this trick allows a shift even without touching the brake. So get the solenoid fixed as soon as you can.

Good luck !

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.

My speedometer in my 2008 Suzuki forenza is not working, what is wrong?

2008, just the speedo, not odometer too, or other things dead
no dead lamps or parking lamps dead? in the I/P cluster?
2006 or 8? the title contradicts/, guess at 08
the 08, has 2 computers, one ECU/PCM
and the cluster brain. (sorry its NASA level now)
the ECU sends CAN instructions the HEAD puter, and the HEAD
moves the analog meter up scale.
there is no more cables. etc.
here is a snap shot of the real deal
suzuki folded up shop USA/CANada, getting it fixed is problematic.
