Questions About 1996 Suzuki Esteem’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Suzuki's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Suzuki Esteem? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Esteem towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Esteem's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Suzuki Esteem’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Suzuki, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Suzuki Esteem leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Suzuki Esteem can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Esteem ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
