Important: Routine inspection of the transaxle fluid is not required. Transaxle fluid inspection is only required if there is a symptom indicating a concern with the fluid.
  1. Park the vehicle on a flat level surface.
  2. Operate the vehicle in order for the transmission fluid temperature to reach the normal operating range. Specification
    Transaxle normal temperature: 60-70 degrees C (140-158 degrees F)
  3. With the engine at idle, manual shift through all transaxle ranges and return to the PARK position. Leave the engine idling.
  4. Clean any dirt or debris away from the area of the transaxle fluid level indicator.
  5. Remove the transaxle fluid level indicator bolt (1) from the transaxle.
  6. Remove the transaxle fluid level indicator (2).
  7. Wipe away any transaxle fluid from the indicator.
  8. Insert the indicator into the transaxle until fully seated.
  9. Remove the indicator and inspect the level and the condition of the oil on the indicator:
    • Transmission fluid level at normal operating temperature (1)
    • Transmission fluid level if cold (2)
  10. If the fluid level is incorrect inspect for the following conditions:
    • Fluid below level, inspect for a leak.
    • Fluid above level, inspect for contamination of the fluid.
Important: The tranaxle uses T-IV fluid, GM P/N 88900925 (Canadian P/N 22689186). The fluid is normally red in color. The oil may darken in color with more miles on a vehicle.

2000 suzuki esteem 1.6 litre over heating

May need to bleed the air out of the system after the hose change. Look for small bleed valve on the top engine or cooling hoes/pipe bleed slowly while engine is at operating temp, then refill after reservoir after car cools down

Engine gets to operating temp. and just quits.. oil pressure good new fuel pump and checked complete fuel system ..when it cools down again it starts..3.8

causes are: low coolant, failing coolant temperature sensor, air in water pump, failed radiator fan, kinked heater hose. it takes 10 to 15 minutes to reach normal range.

I don,t know how to check the gear oil in my 97 suzuki esteem manual transmission or how to add gear oil

The fill plug is on the left hand side of the diff casing just rearwards of where the left hand drive shaft exits the gearbox. You will need a 10mm square drive (a 3/8" ratchet is close, but you have to make sure it stays in the square) to undo it. The box should be filled to this level.

Use a 5w30 oil and the filter the parts person and/or book says to use for that car.

Don't use Fram oil filters. use the cheapest filter that is not fram and any name brand oil that is 5w30.

Autozone has a deal right now for 5qts of oil and a filter for $13

No heat

First, check the coolant level. (in the radiator, not the recovery bottle)(don't open when hot) Next, after running for a time, does temperature reach normal? (around 200-210) If you drive, will it overheat? After reaching temperature, are both top and bottom radiator hoses hot? Is the vacuum hose on the heater control valve connected? If so, is vacuum present at any point when control is moved between a/c and heat? Does the small control arm on the valve move when you move the control? Do both heater hoses get hot when heat is on (one normally cooler than the other, but not drastically) Check this stuff and get back to me!!
