Questions About 1986 Suzuki Samurai’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Suzuki's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Suzuki tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Samurai towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Samurai transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 Samurai’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
