Hello michele151: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The manufacturer recommends replacing the belt at 60,000 miles and inspecting the belt at 30,000 miles. This would also be a good time to check the water pump as the timing belt turns it also. I always recommend replacing the timing belt with a timing kit as this way you also have the parts to replace the idler bearings at the same time. these are small bearings that turn a million times and do wear out. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way I know it was of use. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

When I start my 2004 suzuki forenza sometimes there is a loud squealing noise that will stop if I rev the engine. It doesn't sound like a belt to me sounds more mechanical. It also sometimes makes the...


Squealing noises are more apt to be from belts, not mechanical parts. It doesn't necessarily have to be "a belt" per se, as the noise could, in part, be caused by an idler pulley. Open the hood and try to locate the sound. FYI I have posted the complete 2004 Forenza Service manual on FIXYA. Do a site search with those key words.

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.

How to change timeing belt on 2008 suzuki forenza


Instructions
    • Disconnect the negative cable on your car battery. Make sure to wait for the engine of your Suzuki Forenza to cool off completely before you start working on it.
    • 2Rotate the engine using a wrench attached to a crankshaft bolt. Align the timing mark on the pulley to the 0o mark on the scale.
    • 3
    • Remove the screws and the bolts that hold the timing cover in its place and take the cover off. Loosen the bolts that hold the spring-loaded tensioner of the timing belt a little. Pull the tensioner away from the timing belt and then tighten the bolts again.
    • 4Pry off the timing belt from the pulley channels and the camshaft sprocket with a flat head screwdriver. Set the old timing belt aside and compare it with the new belt. The new belt should have the same width as with the old timing belt and the inside surface of both belts should have the same size of teeth.
    • 5Put the new timing belt on the sprockets and make sure it is positioned correctly. Loosen the bolts that hold the tensioner and pull the tensioner toward the timing belt.
    • 6Adjust the timing of the belt. Strictly follow the instructions on the Suzuki Forenza manual. When the timing is set, check if the timing marks on the can, crank and sprockets are still aligned.
    • 7Turn the engine with the wrench on the crankshaft pulley two whole circles until you reach the 0o mark.
    • 8Reinstall the timing cover and tighten the screws and bolts that hold the cover in its place.
    • 9Reconnect the negative cable on your car battery. Put the key in the ignition and start the car to check if the timing belt replacement was successful and that the car is running properly.

What are the parts needs to be replaced after 100k miles for 2004 suzuki forenza


A little more clarification would be nice, meaning, have you ever serviced the car other than oil changes? Bare minimum, do the timing belt, timing belt tensioner, the two timing belt idler pulleys, water pump, and spark plugs. VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: there are two designs for the water pump. Aftermarket water pumps will be a LOT cheaper, however, are the old design the majority of the time. Problem with the old design is the timing belt rides a bit on one edge of the pulley (not visibly noticeable) and you run the risk of the pulley on the water pump breaking after so many miles which will cause your timing to become out of synch, which results in internal engine damage (either a head job needing to be done or a new engine). A Suzuki dealer will have the undated design of the water pump, however, it is pricey ($302 plus tax).

With that being said, to tell if an aftermarket water pump is the correct design, look at the pulley and if the outer edge of the pulley is thinner than the inner edge, then you have the updated design. Usually aftermarket brands GMB and Gates will be correct.

If this helps, please indicate so! Thanks! :-)
