Question Answered: 

Did you check the blower motor resistor and the switch itself?

Question Answered: 

If you have the 4-cyl. engine you have a timing chain that does not require service. If you have the 6-cyl. it does have a belt that should be changed at 105,000. You can change the water pump at this time as well. For the chirping, it could be either the bearing in the a/c pulley or the clutch is going bad. Need to determine which one it is.

Question Answered: 

It is possible that the water pump is broken. Also, warm the truck up for a while and turn on the heat. Touch both the inlet and outlet pipes of the heater core. Both should be very warm to hot. (Don't burn yourself). If the outlet is much cooler than the inlet or the temp. overall is pretty cool, the core itself may be obstructed. Lastly, the blend door actuator may have failed and is not switching the duct to the heater core. Did this problem exist before you changed the thermostat? Does the engine temp. climb into the normal operating range? Make sure the coolant level is topped off. May just have a lot of air in system from the thermostat replacement.

It is a four step process: Tighten the cylinder head bolts to 18 ft. lbs. Then turn the bolts another 3 times each time turning them 90 degrees. Here is a torque list for you (Cam bearing info. included) :) http://www.justanswer.com/car/5r5xu-suzuki-forenza-torque-specs-sequence.html

Agree with Greg's....I'm leaning toward exhaust blockage. Have cat. converter checked.

Question Answered: 

A constant clicking can mean a failing CV joint in the half-shaft. The bearings start bouncing around and almost sound like marbles circling in a can. Need insp. done on CV joint as well as Greg's answer.
