SOURCE: how do i adjust my

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

SOURCE: my 2001 suzuki xl7 air conditioner blows hot air

Lots of possibilities. The first thing I would do is to have someone turn it on and off, while you look around under the hood (carefully, because fans go on and off).
The first thing you want to see, is if the AC compressor clutch is turning on and off properly. When the fan clutch is off, the outside of the pully will spin with the belt, but the inside will be standing still. When it is on, the whole pulley turns. If this does not work, then it could be a fuse, switch, or the clutch itself.
If this is working, then you need to look into the small sight glass in the top of the receiver/dryer, which is a small vertical cylinder. It should show a flow of clear fluid. Bubbles means it is low on freon.
But the controls could be screwed up, with the hot water staying on, the cold air not be allowed in, etc.'
Operating the controls should allow you to see these things working.
To go beyond this, like check the compressor, the expansion valve, etc., you would need to put a set of pressure gauges on, which are about $50, and come with instructions. There are 2 because you want to compare the input and output sides of the compressor.

My car is a 2006 Suzuki forenza manual with 67k miles on it. It just had an oil change a few months ago with a new filter as well. I didn't drive the car for a few days while the temperature was...

Suzuki should have stayed with just motorcycles. Anyway, You just had the oil changed. Check and see if they changed the filter also. They may have forgot or were just to lazy. Just a chance the oil filter is bad, I would replace it again(is the oil clean on the dipstick?). Add a higher viscosity oil. At 67,000 miles, you would have to drive dirt roads all the time, with no air filter to get sludge to clog the head ports. Which is slow drain of oil to the pan. The oil pump? well it could be, most likely not. I would say the oil sending unit is bad, but the knocking noise kind of throws that off. Knocking is bad, if it happens again, pull off and shut the engine down. One other thing to watch is the temperature gauge. getting really hot will cause knocking. Check coolant level and the thermostat.

Look back first on any unusual things that went on with the car. If the car is running differently it may just be loose sensors, inspect the cables and the vacuum hoses. Check for leaks or parts that may have come off.

In most cases it could be several issues and you need the codes to accurately identify the problem. Some shops would let you borrow their scanner to get the error codes if there are no Suzuki dealers in your area.

Probably the sensor. Hair line crack in sensor can cause the check engine light to come on .When the sensor gets hot it expands and causes a fault reading.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.
