Is it sluggish turning over or does it turn over good and just not start?

Expert:  Neal replied 5 years ago.

Sorry for the delay, was having computer issues.

 

Is this an auto transmission? If so there is a TSB on this issue, and here it is, it will require a reprogram by the dealer to correct this.

 

FORENZA

Section Title: Engine
TSB No. TS 09 10056

Division: Automotive
Category: Technical

SUBJECT:
HARD START WITH EXTENDED CRANKING TIME

MODEL(S):
FORENZA, FORENZA WAGON, RENO (RQ420) A/T ONLY

YEAR:
2006

CONDITION:
Some automatic transmission vehicles may experience extended cranking time (greater than 2 seconds) before the engine starts after cold soak. After the first start the engine will restart and perform as designed without any MIL ON and with no recurrence of the symptom until a repeat cold soak.

CAUSE:
ECM software logic.

CORRECTION:
Reprogram the Engine Control Module (ECM) on all vehicles in dealer inventory and on all customer vehicles brought to your service department. Refer to the General TSB 05 XXXXX "ECM (ECU) Reprogramming Verification Procedure Using the Suzuki SDS Tool".
