The car runs fine. Then, when I shut it off, It won't restart for about 10-15 minutes. This just started happening.

I bought the car in Dec, Dealer said it was just fixed and was running great. Bought As-is. Turned around and found a leak the next day. Water pump needed to be changed. Paid Jeff Fields, Suzuki Almost $600 for that, Although they said the timing belt was fine and did not need to be replaced. Next day i noticed a leak and clutch felt as if it was not catching right, took it back... Turns out the EGR valve Gasget was not there, but instead had orange claking had been used as a temp fix, and The Clutch was about to go (as if the dealer hadent known). Anyways, I bought and fixed EGR Valve the next day. Didnt have the money for a new clutch right then.. I had just bought the car. A few weeks later I dropped it off at Suzuki Again! Picked it up after my taxes came in. So it was there for about a week. $900 for the clutch work, Apperently I needed A new flywheele but couldnt afford the extra $376 So my Dad I guess sanded it down and told them to use it. So in doing so Suzuki didn't call and ask me, they didnt warrenty any of the work. I throw a fit left, And 15 mins later it won't stay Started!!! I can start it, its fine for a sec then starts almost whuummuumming, lights start dimming and it dies!You can drive it for a sec, then it dies! Help Please

I first had a hose burst i replace it. A week later runs hot. I changed thermostat ($47.00). thought thats all i needed ,but now tonight while waitin for wife to get off work run hot while idling. Earlier i drove of town (Oxford) and back with no problem
What else do i need to BUY!!!!

When I am driving it accelerates and the rpms go up and then goes down.

my transmission cooler is leafing at the fitting and I need to check fliud level

Little less than 75,000 miles on the car. Recent head gasket, timing belt, and oil change. Check engine light on. Rough idling when stopped. Burning smell seems to be coming from rear drivers side, but also under the hood a bit. Seems to be occur on both short and long trips.

Have codes appearing

All of the remanufactured pumps are sold without a pulley and i have been told that you cannot remove the pulley on your current pump & put it on the one you are putting in. is there a solution to this??

When i disconnect the battery i am able to remove my key. Still can't shift out of park without using the shift lock release. Otherwise the car is running fine.

I have a 2004 Suzuki Forenza with 116,000 miles on it. AFTER the car warms up (I drive around 5-10 miles) the car/engine will begin to hesitate as if the engine isn't receiving any power. When rolling to a stop, the RPMs will dive down to 0 and just barely keep the engine running, but when running properly typically the RPMs will stay above 1000 when idling. The exhaust smells like fuel that isn't burning and my exhaust pipe will "putt". Any ideas? My mechanic has replaced the housing, heat sensor, thermostat, bottom pulley, spark plugs, wires, valve cover gasket, and coil.

Recently replaced transmission sensor. With the key in the on position (not started)the battery light is on so I don't think its the alternator. The car started slowly then after work tried not to start at all. One battery terminal had corrosion that cleaned up nicely. Now it starts easier but does have hesitation at start and the driver's air bag light came on. So far runs fine. This car is breaking me with repairs, I will never buy another Suzuki. Any ideas on what I should check next?

First fix was to replace spark plugs and new plug wires.two weeks went buy and the miss came back. also replaced valve cover gasket.Ran code tester and came back with no code. I am thinking coils going bad or pick-up sensor. any one had this problem before.

The automatic transmission selector level will not move then the key is in, engine on and brake pedal depressed. Checked for fuse, but, difficult to determine which one it is. If you have a fuse position, that would be a help. No obvious fuse issues. Other than the switch at the brake pedal and the solenoid, we are stumped as to why this is happening. Is there a common issue with this cars that could point us in the right direction?

Thank you for your assistance.
