i bought a Suzuki Forenza 2006 , and i need to get the car to get inspected at the local motor vehicle, but there is a problem with the car.i took the car to a mechanic and he put the computer on the car and the computer is saying that there is a problem with the transmission. the car runs really well. there is a light that remains on the speedometer, the reason why i took it to the mechanic. is there a way to fix that light ? i neew help
I certainly hope I'm not ruining the transmission by doing this. Is it bad to go back and forth from shifting "manually" and just leaving it in Drive? I also noticed that when I floored it from a 20mph roll earlier in 1st gear, the car felt like it was downshifting, then something felt as if it was slipping, you know, it was laggy, but felt like it was trying to go, then it finally got up and went. It could be my almost-bald tires. But still, could you tell me if I'm ruining my car? I want to have the feel of a manual, but without the clutch work, and with the option of putting it in Drive when I need to. Thanks in advance.
Hey there, it's me again.
I came to you since I know you're always a great help and I figured you might have some experience in the field of knowledge I'm about to mention. So, as you know, I have an automatic transmission in my Reno. Being the type of driver that I am, I enjoy the feel of shifting the gears like a manual transmission, while still having the option to put the car in Drive and let the car do the shifting itself. Well, about a week or two ago, I decided to try shifting through the gears myself as I drove. I'd start in 1, go up to 2 at around 4k, then 3 at 3k, and then D would act as 4th gear. The thing is, I occasionally feel the need for speed and floor the car in 1st or 2nd. I also don't always do the shifting myself, it's an off and on thing. But you see, today, I noticed that while the car was in Drive, the shifts were pretty rough. Is this because the car is picking up my shifting habits?
Was wondering since you've been on here a while, would you know if there are any aftermarket valve covers for the "05" Forenza 2.0l D-tec heads? I'm at a loss as why the Parts Train web site shows that a ford Valve cover will fit my car? ___ Sorry, the reason I'm looking for one is mine is warped and won't seal properly... The Dealer fixed the leak a few years ago (Warranty) and seems to have destroyed it and leaking again. Thanks for any help.
i wasn't trying to attack you in those other posts man, got respect for what you've done with ur Reno so sorry if i sounded like a jerk.
if you get a chance, i'd like to know more about how you found those KDM parts and if you have any good sources on other parts like those for our cars. also, what kinds of other things have you done to ur car...
