SOURCE: Car wont start, it just makes a clicking almost

If the starter is not even turning the engine over, then it probably a starter/solenoid issue. If the spark plugs were bad, the car would still turn over but not start (or would run poorly).

Recommend removing your starter and taking it to (almost) any auto parts store to have it tested for free.

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.

Possible electrical problem?

Diagnosing something from a description is far from an exact science, but this is what it sounds like to me may have happened. If your battery was not tie down it could have gotten against something hot or moving (like a pulley), or what ever was rattling may have created a spark somehow and caused the battery to exploded, either way the battery fluid spashing onto hot metal could explain the cloud of white smoke, as you did not mention seeing any flames.

I started my 2004 suzuki forenza after work today and it started badly and there was a lot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust. The check engine light started flashing. I got about 4 blocks away and...

It does sound like a bad head gasket. Did you vehicle overheat recently? Usualy there is a reason the head gasket goes out. Check to see if your low on coolant too. It probably isn't too bad yet because it stopped blowing white smoke but I wouldnt drive it anymore. Coolant will ruin the pistons and sleeves if you keep driving it. Hope this helps and if you need any help with anything, feel free to ask.

Smoking was coming out of my hood and my car was shaking. My check engine light was blinking, this never happened before. suzuki forenza 04

If the light flashes on and off, the vehicle has a severe problem that will cause additional damage. You should not be driving the vehicle.
