Question about 1998 Suzuki Esteem
How do you fill the trans fluid
I have been around and around this with the "experts" at the Stealership and I am looking at the same diagrams that they have. They are wrong!! Everybody says that it is a 3/8" square drive plug, NorthEast of the driver's side CV axle but there is no such plug there. What you want to do is locate the speedo cable! (well sort of) These cars don't really have a true mechanical speedo cable. What they have is a little drive gear that creates a signal and sends that signal through a wire to the electronic speedometer. On the Esteem you will see a black plug with wires going to it, right behind that bracket that holds the two shift linkage cables. Think of it above the differential. Just look at the shift cables and look right behind the bracket that holds those cables. There is a 10mm bolt holding the plug in place. You'll need a very long extension. Once that small bolt is freed, you can pop that black plug and wires right out. On the end of the plug will be a plastic gear, it should be oily. I believe the gear case holds about 4.2 pints/2.1 quarts. Good luck!
