Question about 2004 Suzuki Forenza

Open Question

2004 Suzuki Forenza. Check engine light on. Car idling very rough when coming to a stop or sitting idling. Took it in and was told it was Cam sensor code and had it replaced along with timing belt. Also had Air Filter Housing replaced since was told it was allowing air in. All that complete and check engine light still on car still idling rough. Now when checked I am told it is showing code 420 or catalytic converter code? Car only has 97,000 miles.

SOURCE: van backfires through air filter housing then

what happened sound very much like either you slipped a tooth on the timing belt/chain or the it broke. the first clue is the back fire, and then the no start. your going to have to take the cover off the timing chain to see if this is the case. i would imagine that if it isn't broke but it doesn't start then it slip the gear. if you have not done this kind of work then i suggest find a friend to help or take to a good shop

SOURCE: would you say suzuki forenza 06 is a good car to buy?

They have been doing well and there problems are fewer than most. Sounds like you have a pretty good car. Have those trouble codes checked and repaired though so it does'nt cause problems down the road. Good luck.

SOURCE: Buick Century 97 runs rough and stutters when cold and gas applie

start by replacing the plugs and plug wires, this is esp true if car has over 100,000 miles on it. damp air can make the problem worse.

I have a 2004 Suzuki forenza that stalls when I come to a stop and has to sit about 10 mins before it will restart, them runs fine till I stop again. there is no check engine light or codes. i cleaned


2004? this is before the EEC parliament made it compulsory that all cars must work from the same system and give the codes on a little handheld tool so its possible that you are not being able to access all the codes and they are only readable with dealer software ,the answer ?? grin and smile when the dealer gives you the bill

My 2006 Suzuki Forenza has a rough idle and also does the same during acceleration. I have replaced the thermostat as well and I keep losing antifreeze but se no leaks what is going on?


My engine is on sometimes and then off. When it is on sometimes it blinks ?????? Check engine light ??????
The flashing light is meant to alert you that you may have a misfire in your engine that will cause catalytic converter damage if you leave the problem unresolved. Replacing a catalytic converter can be costly, so have the engine checked as soon as possible by a certified mechanic.
Don't go to advance auto parts .

I have a 2005 suzuki forenza.. I loose coolant like its nothing no signs of leak.. Low rough idle..I replaced the plugs and wires and 02 sensor Engine light flashes at idle and stops flashing but remains...


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.

Car runs ok all day but in afternoon engine light comes on. It can happen faster if the air is on. When this happens; I get rough idle. Have not checked codes.


The most likely problem is the o2 sensor in your exhaust. You will need to take the car to autozone, they run free diagnostics and can tell you which one needs replaced or cleaned.

2004 Suzuki forenza starts when cold, but runs crappy for about 10 min+/- major repairs include new wire, plugs, o2 sensor, injectors cleaned. Was told it needed a new cat, but not sure it would have...


First are you adding antifreeze? The head gasket and the egr plate gasket have been know to leak antifreeze. #4 cylinder the head gasket like to leak and cause a rough engine running when cold till the antifreeze clears out. I don't believe it is the cat causing rhe problem. If it was, it would do it all the time. Don Suzuki tech
