Hi im not sure on this particular model but there a few easy ways to check.... take the spark plugs out, remove the broken belt, shine a light down the holes and look for dammdge, if you cant see anything you can turn the crank but it is a tricky job because you can ruin the engine so if your unsure get a mechanic to do it.. or your other alternative is to remove the head and have a look but you will need a new head gasket kit, timing belt and tensioner kit etc .. it is important that you do not turn the engine over when the belt is disconected in any way UNTIL you know for sure that valves wont hit pistons, even bending a valve will not be very noticable but when its all back together you will deffinately notice and will have to pull it all back apart

Whhen to change timing belt


Most companies recommend replacement at or before 80,000 miles. It is an interference engine which means the valves can be damaged if the belt breaks while the engine is running.

Is the 2006 suzuki forenza with the 2.0 liter engine an interference engine?


Yes, If the timing belt brakes or skips several teeth. The 2.0L Suzuki engine pistons will and do hit the valves under that condition.
You should change that belt at 100-120k miles.
You can start by R&R the timing belt and setting everything back to specs,
Do a compretion test - that will be your awnser. Low or no compretion + bent valves.
The cheepest fix is a certified used low milage motor - put your new timing belt on the used motor for good measure.
