1993 Suzuki Sidekick Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Suzuki? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 1993 Sidekick’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Suzuki, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Suzuki Sidekick leak transmission fluid? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Suzuki Sidekick, potentially causing transmission problems.
