Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

Transmission or Engagement issue?

I have a 2007 Suzuki Forenza and it seems like something is wrong with the transmission or an engagement issue. When I shift from reverse to drive, it seems like it is out of gear. It an automatic transmission. When I accelerate, the engine seems to rev up like it's still in neutral. The check engine light stays on when this happens and then goes back off after a few days.

I had the same problem with my 2006 Forenza - the problem was the transmission range sensor. If you look under the hood, on the drivers side, you'll see your trans. cable connected to a round part that also has an electrical cable coming from it. That is it. Part costs $36.07 at (search for Neutral safety switch in the mechanical catalog).

It is the neutral safety switch/range sensor. This is a known problem in these cars and not covered by the drivetrain warrantee. Fairly simple replacement for a trans shop BUT DON'T LET THE SHOP CHARGE YOU FOR THE PART. BUY IT YOURSELF. The part can be bought online for anywhere between $35 and $60. The shops (at least in this area) will charge over $150 for it.

If i read this correctly your saying you changed the transmission fluid and now it will only engage reverse. The friction plates inside the transmission are no good anymore. You need to have the transmission overhauled.

I have a 2004 Suzuki Forenza. Just got the 60,000 mile service done on the car (timing belt and the whole 9 yards...) I picked up my car from the dealership last weekend. As I was decelerating on a...

I would suggest calling the dealer right away - there may be a defect in your transmission OR they may have done the transmission service wrong, if the transmission was even serviced. I have had a bad experience with a company power flushing my transmission - they did it wrong ( changed the filter before flushing) and fried my transmission. I'm not totally sure of what is going on with your car ( a hands on diagnostic is required) but I do think something is rotten in your trans.
Hope this helps!

On my 2007 suzuki forenza the check engine light came on. i had it troubleshooted at autozone, and the computer indicated the transmission range sensor out of position. where is it located?

no such code on that car, auto zone uses global testing which pulls universal codes, so that code means someting different for the suzuki, need to have it checked by the dealer or a shop that has import software, or post the code # and i can translate it into import code, good luck.
