1998 Suzuki Sidekick Drivetrain Service

1998 Suzuki Sidekick Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Sidekick's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Suzuki, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Sidekick and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1998 Suzuki Sidekick to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Suzuki's recommendations.
