1996 Suzuki Sidekick Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1996 Suzuki Sidekick Drivetrain Service

Your Sidekick’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Suzuki, from back to front. It’s one of your Sidekick’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Suzuki Sidekick, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Suzuki's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Suzuki Sidekick Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1996 Suzuki Sidekick drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Sidekick might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Suzuki Sidekick.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1996 Suzuki Sidekick? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
