Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza
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 oemsuzukiparts.com (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.
