Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza
When I first start my 06 Suzuki Forenza it makes a loud clicking sound. When I press on the gas pedal it just gets louder until the car has been driven a while, then it stops. Also my engine malfunction light comes on occasionally and goes back off. When I went to the dealership I was told that I needed a drive belt, which I had replaced as well as a timing belt.
Your car is from 2006 how come it needs a timing belt ( do you drive 20K per year? ). What is wrong with the drive belt. The sound from belt is not a clicking noise.
Any way try to avoid that dealer. What a baloney.
When you start the car, open the hood try to identify where the noise comes from.
1-If it comes from the top engine, open your oil cap, to see if oils splattered from mechanical movements. Usually oil is not enough then it takes time to travel to the cam shaft and the lifters that why after making noise a while then the engine becomes quite since it gets lubricated. How long have you been from last oil changed?
2-If it comes from the front engine try to identify if it comes from Power steering or AC. Check Power-steering fluid to see it it needs filled up. Check this before starting the engine.
Try to turn on AC to see if the noise more or less so you can determine the AC clutch is bad.
Hope you can find the source for a good fix.

Sounds like it just needs a oil & filter change ?
check engine oil level!
smell it to see if its burnt
or is dirty [tarnished or black]
or gritty between your fingers?
it could be noisy tappets or lifters!
change your mechanic as its got absolutely nothing to do with the belts!
im truly amazed at the amount of rip offs in the auto industry in the US!
