Questions About 1997 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Suzuki? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. 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.
  • How often does my Sidekick transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Suzuki Sidekick’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
