I was changing the rear brake pads, when I noticed a spring fell off behind the emergency brake disk. How should I compress the spring to get the nail in and locked by hand? I'm having a hard time holding the emergency brake piece down and trying to compress the spring enough to get the retainer clip over the nail to turn and lock it. Is there a special tool to do this?

Will get it to a mechanic in a few days.

doesnt do when really easy on stopping

Im trying to change out my slave cylinder but can seem to locate it

My son bought a 2008 Suzuki Forenza new, and now he puts his foot on the gas pedal and it does not have any power. This is not a safe car to drive...there are other things wrong, but this is one thing I am very concerned with.

I had the water pump, gaskets and thermostat replaced about 10 months ago the had the water pump replaced about 2 months after that again. Havnt had any problems really since then except I have to put water in about every 1-2 months. Today my car overheated all the way to the H right as i was puling into my drive I popped the hood and it blew the radiator hose off or busted it cant tell yet. What could it be?

2005 Suzuki Forenza Station Wagon 4 cylinder automatic. Air bag lights stays on. Is this a recall?

I'm trying to locate the map sencor

My hose has a big slice in it and it needs to be replaced.

when it accelerates and when the auto transmission shifts gears. Midas tells me my power steering pump is falling apart from the inside. They said they found that out by using a stetoscope. I have no problem steering the car. My 2 out of town mechanic sons tell me it's the transmission not the power steering pump. Should I take it to the Suzuki dealership?

Do I need tape, glue, a new hose? Looks like an easy fix but not sure.

Just bought used 2008 Forenza no check engine light on when we bought it on Monday, had $417 worth of work done incl. replacing timing belt, no check engine light then back on next day, back in shop and another $250 for thermostat sensor replacement and diagnosing of non-functioning A/C - said need new throttle body but couldn't be sure as no tool to diagnose. Car runs fine, no loss of power, etc., and now the A/C works although no work done to it but garage quoted $500+ as new compressor needed? We are taking it to a garage w/right diagnostic tool for better accuracy - spent $3350 for car and we are up to 4k now, plus car has a few dents (not huge but...) feeling like we got ripped off, praying this ends up to be a really good car but gas mileage doesn't even seem to be very good either :-(

there is a small amount of oil leaking from recent gasket replacement

I was told I needed new struts. I took it to another mechanic for a 2nd oppinion. He said they are fine, they aren't leaking and they passed the test. I still hear a noise plus two more noises. One being a can rattle noise , the other one is it sounds like a space ship when I start the car.

Cd will go into changer, run for a few seconds, eject and display "error 4"

stopped at stop sign, check engine light came on and then transmission was slipping

After about a year of trying to figure out the problem with this car, I finally got it thoroughly scanned and received a P1779 code, an Engine Torque Input Malfunction. I was told that I would have to take my car back to the dealership in order to get the ECU reprogrammed and updated. Do I have to go to a dealership or can I go to a service shop? How much will this cost?

car will start but die after 1 minute when cold outside temp

it happen all at one when i was driving

Alright my car stopped shifting and the speedomoter and odometer also stopped as well..at the same time the check engine light came on. i had it diagnosed at a suzuki dealer and they tried a few things but no luck. so they called a tech and they said the only way to fix it is to change the transmission. Now im no mechanic but since the problem goes away once the comp is reset that tells me its probably an electrical problem and im really thinking that changing the transmission is not neccessary. any ideas?

location of map sensor and O0 sensors on a 2006 suzuki forenza

I had two different diagnostic checks done, n two separate days. The codes are P0700 and P0705. Some of the probable causes are: transaxle fault, misadjusted TR switch, open or short circuit conditin, poor electrical connection, failed TR switch, failed or misadjusted TR sensor. What type of repairs and billing am I facing? Thank you.
