1989 Suzuki Sidekick Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Sidekick's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Suzuki, from back to front. It’s one of your Sidekick’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Suzuki's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

We can fix many 1989 Suzuki Sidekick drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Sidekick might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Suzuki Sidekick.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick?

Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
