1989 Suzuki Swift Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 1989 Swift’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Suzuki Swift transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Suzuki Swift transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Swift isn’t working at all.

1989 Suzuki Swift 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Suzuki Swift? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Swift towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 Swift transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Suzuki Swift’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
