Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

Open Question

HELP! Today 2005 Suzuki Forenza starting making a rattling sound under the hood towards the right of the engine. It seemed to be louder when idling than when accelerating. Then I stopped for gasoline + it wouldn't start afterwards. It started making a whining sound and it won't turn over. Someone else said battery, but all the gauges work and it's def not the battery. Ideas?

SOURCE: 06 Suzuki Forenza make a loud clicking noise.

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!
Cheers Rob.

SOURCE: 06 Suzuki Forenza make a loud clicking noise.

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.

Check if the kill switch is engaged. Check for faulty starter solenoid or disconnected solenoid wire. Check for defective ignition switch. Check for defective starter motor.

Im not sure which EFI you have, too lazy to look that up.

which engine do you have, and what country, ?
as a mech, i open hood and look, on the net , i cant do that.

Your car can start if the alternator is making noise. It could be the bearings going out in the alternator, It could be the tension pulley for your belt. It could be a valve rattling but the sound could make you think it's coming from a different place. Sounds under a hood may sound like it's here, but it could be coming from there. Good Luck.

Check your oil----is it very high? Put a piece of cardboard under your car overnight, see if you have any leaks externally. If not, then you have an internal leak, which indicates a blown head gasket.
