SOURCE: tire size
i have a 2005 and went to a higher profile tire. nothing but good things have come from it. better ride, better gas mileage, and an all around nicer look. do not go to drastic but the next size up as far as sidewall goes...i am happy with my choice.

Most likely cause of this is a clogged thermostat. Especiallly if you've ever used a sealer in the past, the thermostat clogs with age and a bad thermostat will tend to back up and fill your reservoir tank. Best of luck with this situation and I hope you've found this post a solution to your problem. All the best!

Suzuki forenza uses Green silica based anti-freeze. If you mix the wrong kind with it, it will gum up your thermostat (90 dollars) and potentially mess with some of the smaller cooling fluid tubes and passages. Not to mention, the water pump is not to fond of gritty fluid. So if you see discoloration in the bright green fluid, better drain it, flush the system out with a garden hose for 5 to 10 minutes, and refill it with new fluid.

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.

SOURCE: Where is the crankshaft position
It is mounted below the power steering pump and behind the AC compressor(if equipped).
Both will need to be removed to access it.
Here is a pic of the engine after they are removed.
I hope this helps you towards a good repair.
Thank you for using FixYa.
