Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Suzuki Sidekick transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

1992 Suzuki Sidekick Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Suzuki? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sidekick’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sidekick is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Sidekick transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1992 Sidekick’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.
