What Does Your Suzuki Swift Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Swift’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Suzuki Swift transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Suzuki Swift transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Swift isn’t working at all.

1998 Suzuki Swift Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Suzuki? 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 my Suzuki tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Swift’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Swift's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Suzuki Swift transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
