1994 Suzuki Sidekick Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Suzuki Sidekick? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sidekick’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Sidekick's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1994 Sidekick’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Suzuki. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Suzuki Sidekick? Yes. Suzuki Sidekick transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

  • Can I still drive my Suzuki Sidekick if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Sidekick with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
