What to Know About 1990 Suzuki Sidekick Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Suzuki Sidekick to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Sidekick. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Sidekick, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Suzuki, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Sidekick's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1990 Suzuki Sidekick problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Suzuki Sidekick Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Sidekick. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Sidekick may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Suzuki Sidekick battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Sidekick stranded. Your Suzuki Sidekick won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick's engine run smoother. To learn how often Suzuki recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 Sidekick, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Suzuki Sidekick? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1990 Sidekick is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Suzuki Sidekick to high mileage oil? If your Suzuki Sidekick has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
