Questions About 1997 Suzuki Esteem’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Suzuki? 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 my Suzuki tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Esteem’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Esteem is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Esteem's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Suzuki Esteem’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Suzuki's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Suzuki Esteem? Yes. Suzuki Esteem transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.

You might even experience transmission failure.
