Questions About 1991 Suzuki Sidekick’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. 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sidekick’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Sidekick's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Suzuki Sidekick transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
