2006 Suzuki Forenza Question: Timing belt

I have a Suzuki Forenza 2006. After how many miles do I have to change my timing belt? Do I also have to change other parts that go with the timing belt also? Thanks. -
Answer 1
You need to get the timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. Don't miss this service because this is an interference engine which means there will be a serious engine damage in case of timing belt failure. I suggest to get the water pump, tensioner, idler pulleys, cam and crank seals replaced also. They are all important pieces of the timing. Here is the rest of the 60K service: 60000 MI or 96000 KM Inspect: Body and Frame Chassis and Underbody Bolts and Nuts Tight/Secure Brake Hose/Line Check for leakage and damage. Check clamps for tightness. Constant Velocity Joint Boot Inspect for cracks, leaks, and damage. Cooling System Inspect cooling system , hoses, and connections for leakage, looseness, wear, or damage. Disc Brake System Front and read brake pads and discs. Drive Belt Evaporative Emissions System SUZUKI recommends that this maintenance service is performed to ensure peak performance and long-term reliability of your vehicle. However, the U.S. Enviromental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board have determined that the failure to perform this specific maintenance item will not void your emission warranty or limit recall liability. Exhaust System Fluid - A/T Fluid - M/T Fuel Filter SUZUKI recommends that this maintenance service is performed to ensure peak performance and long-term reliability of your vehicle. However, the U.S. Enviromental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board have determined that the failure to perform this specific maintenance item will not void your emission warranty or limit recall liability. Fuel Supply Line Check for loose connections, deterioration or damage which could cause leakage. Make sure all clamps are secure. Parking Brake System Inspect lever and cable. Power Steering Seat Belt Systems Steering Wheel Steering wheel & linkage Lubricate: Doors, Hood and Trunk All latches, hinges and locks. Replace: Air Filter Element Brake Fluid Cabin Air Filter Clutch Fluid Coolant Replace every 30 months or 30,000 miles. Check specific gravity for freezing point.

However, the U.S. Enviromental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board have determined that the failure to perform this specific maintenance item will not void your emission warranty or limit recall liability. Timing Belt Rotate Tires Inspect for damage and uneven wear. Perform at mileage interval or every 7.5 months, whichever comes first. Zee -
