Question about 2004 Suzuki Forenza
Have a 2004 Forenza. About a month ago the temperature gauge started to climb and I happend to be near a gas station and sure enough I was running low on coolant. So I filled up the anti-freeze and was on my way. During the same day the car seem to be idling strange and it seemed to be missing a bit at higher speeds, I check all my fluids and thought maybe it was a result of the temp. issues that morning. Next day the car was fine. A month later is starts idling funny and missing even worse, almost like is is being choked, (my engine light has been on for 30,000 mile or so but had no problems), the strange thing is while this "choking" is happening I wont be able accelerate and then my engine light will start blinking and the instant it begins to blink the car runs like it is brand new. I took it to the shop, and they replace the valve cover gasket, a few line, new plugs, and new air filter but no change...I think maybe its the catylitic converter but I am puzzled by the blinking engine light situtation. Any help would be appriciated. Thanks, J.J.

was the car running fine, before you put the new gas in the car, if the answer is yes, then , i would say , there is a chance that you could have got some water in your gas where ever you got it. " sometimes at gas stations, when the fuel runs low in their under ground tanks, they sweat and draw moisture, and then when a person pumps the gas , the water/ moisture goes into the customers gas tank, i would put 1-2 bottles of heet, into the gas tank to remove the water, that is if this is the case, after you do this, hope fully the engine will run fine, if it does not, then i would have someone to hook up a code tester, to the aldl link, to see what trouble codes have ben picked up by the computer, hopefully the problem will go away with the heet installed, hope that this information has helped you. you can buy the heet at walmart , or at a auto part store. p.s. try 1 bottle of heet first, and then if you need to add the 2nd bottle then you can, but see how it runs on only 1 bottle of heet first.
