  • This article contains precise information about required specifications and quantities of consumables used during regular vehicle maintenance, as well as regular maintenance intervals.
    • Please ensure that this information applies to your specific vehicle and country, as variations can occur.

Warning Icon.pngNo guarantee is given for the accuracy of any data presented in this article!


Note Icon.pngBefore you drain any fluid, first check if the filler plug, screw or cap for that fluid can be completely removed.
Sometimes it can't be unscrewed due to age or curse!
You do not want to end up stranded with a drained system which you can not refill!



  • Because Jimnys 3 have been in production for 20 years, and in various revisions and editions, there are several consumables specification tables, depending on a particular vehicle edition.
  • If you want to be absolutely certain about the exact fluid specifications for your particular vehicle, the required fluid specifications and quantities are written in the owner's manual.

Note Icon.pngIf you don't have the original owner's manual for your particular vehicle, you can determine the name of the correct manual in the wiki page "Manuals and Owners Guides".



Notes for new owners of second-hand Jimnys

Gen3-100x100.jpg


Gen4-100x100.jpg


If you recently bought a second-hand Jimny and you are not confident in its service history, change ALL fluids and filters, the sooner the better. All fluids and filters stated below should be periodically changed anyway.


This means oils in:

  • engine;
  • front axle;
  • rear axle;
  • gear box;
  • transfer box;
  • power steering;
  • brakes;
  • air conditioning compressor oil and coolant (if AC is fitted);
  • don't forget the engine coolant as well.


Filters are:

  • engine oil filter;
  • engine air intake filter;
  • cabin (pollen, air conditioning) filter;
  • fuel filter for DDiS (diesel) Jimnys;


It is also advised to change all engine belts (and accompanying tensioners if applicable) and also visually check upon spark plugs in petrol engines.


General awareness about proper fluid and filter selection

Gen3-100x100.jpg


Gen4-100x100.jpg


  • Beware that selecting a suitable / properly matching fluid and filter (oil, coolant, etc.) is vital for the longevity of the mechanical systems which use those fluids!
    • For example, the longevity of the engine, gearbox, etc. is highly dependent on what exact oil type is used.
  • Using a high quality fluid from a good manufacturer is one thing, but equally as important is using a properly matching type of fluid.
    • However, selecting a properly matching fluid type can be a rather tricky endeavor, as there can be significant differences among seemingly unimportant specification details.

Note Icon.pngIf you are considering using some additives for the engine oil and/or for transmission oils, read the wiki article "Oil additives (engine, transmission)" first.



Regular maintenance not mentioned in official recommendations

Gen3-100x100.jpg


Gen4-100x100.jpg


The list below contains regular maintenance which is strongly advised to be practiced from common experience, and which is rarely (if at all) mentioned in the official vehicle documentation:

  1. Road tyre rotation.
    • Good practice is to do it during every engine oil change.
    • This is actually properly explained in the official documentation, but is often overlooked, so here is another mention.
  2. Checking tyre pressures regularly.
  3. Underbody anti-rust protection.
    • First time should be done thoroughly and as soon as possible after the vehicle leaves the factory, then regular checking and touch-up once a year.
  4. Regular washing of the underbody, especially during winter.
    • This should preferably be done a bit further away from home, so that the underbody can dry after the wash during the trip back home.
  5. Use the 4WD system from time to time to check if it works and to prevent its parts from sticking or deteriorating due to chronic dormancy.
  6. Cleaning or replacement of the cabin air filter.
  7. Waxing the painted body at least twice a year.
  8. Filling up the car battery with distilled water before and after every summer.
    • Applicable only if the battery has removable cell caps.
  9. Using the hand brake at least once a month.
    • There are people who never use it - this reminder is for them.
  10. Cleaning and nourishing the seats at least twice a year.
    • Applicable only if the seats are made of real or synthetic leather.
  11. Putting fuel in before it gets to reserve level in the tank.
  12. Driving off road at least once a month.
  13. Getting stuck in snow or mud at least once a year.
  14. Visiting this forum and wiki at least once a week.


Fluid specifications and replacement intervals

Gen3-100x100.jpg


Gen4-100x100.jpg


Important common notes for all the tables

Notes about tables' content

  • All stated quantities and specifications are direct copies from original Suzuki's user manuals.
    • Exceptions are stated OEM part numbers for all the filters and belts.
      • These have been taken from Suzuki's online spare parts catalogue.


  • All replacement intervals are direct copies from original Suzuki's user manuals for normal driving conditions.
  • In some cases, this data has been supplemented with advised "practical" intervals from the "community / street experience" (in normal driving conditions).
    • In such cases, it is generally recommended to adhere to advised "practical" intervals instead to official factory intervals.



Notes about severe driving conditions

  • Replacement intervals for many parts and fluids are significantly shorter if the vehicle regularly endures one or more driving conditions which are classified as "severe".
  • In that case, you should consult your original Suzuki user manual (chapter 8 - "Inspection and maintenance"), which contains detailed info about shortened replacement intervals in severe driving conditions.
  • Many aspects of all-terrain driving fall under one or more classifications of "severe driving conditions"!


There are several driving conditions which user manuals classify as "severe conditions":

  1. Repeated short trips;
  2. Driving on rough and/or muddy roads;
  3. Driving on dusty roads;
  4. Driving in extremely cold weather and/or salty roads;
  5. Repeated short trips in extremely cold weather;
  6. Leaded petrol fuel use;
  7. Low quality diesel fuel use;
  8. Towing a trailer (or otherwise working under heavy load);
  9. Also, driving like an ignorant idiot.


  • Not each type of condition is applicable to every fluid's or part's shortened replacement interval.
  • Read your factory user manual for full info!


The replacement intervals of these parts and fluids are negatively affected by one or more severe driving conditions:

  • Engine air filter;
  • Engine oil and oil filter;
  • Manual gear box oil;
  • Automatic gear box oil;
  • Transfer gear box oil;
  • Differential oil (front);
  • Differential oil (rear);
  • Engine accessory drive belt(s);
  • Engine camshaft timing belt (and tensioner);
  • Spark plugs (nickel);
  • Spark plugs (iridium);
  • Diesel fuel filter;


It might be shorter to list parts and fluids whose replacement intervals are not affected by any of the severe driving conditions:

  • Engine coolant;
  • Power steering fluid;
  • Brake fluid;
  • Petrol fuel filter;


Notes on engine air filter

  • Engine air filter should officially be changed on every 3rd engine oil replacement (and air-blown during the intermediate ones).
  • However, driving in dusty or smoggy conditions can severely shorten air filter's service life.
    • Therefore, change the air filter more often (at least every 2nd engine oil change), by evaluating its condition.
      • A dirty air filter causes lower engine power, higher fuel consumption and long term engine damage.


Notes on cabin air filter

  • The factory does not specify a regular replacement interval for the cabin air filter.
    • (It is also called "pollen" filter or "air conditioning" filter).
  • That is because a cabin air filter is unimportant for the vehicle.
    • It is a filter for the human respiratory system.
  • As far as the vehicle (and its manufacturer) is/are concerned, you do not need to change a cabin air filter ever.
    • You can even discard it and drive indefinitely without it.
      • Many Jimnys don't even come with a cabin air filter installed from the factory!
      • The (lack of) presence of a cabin air filter or its heavy dirtiness does not mechanically negatively affect anything in the vehicle.
  • However, if you value your health and therefore the longevity and quality of your only life, you should change the cabin air filter regularly too.
    • A sensible replacement interval might be every 20 000 km or two years - just guessing.
      • Choose whichever replacement interval makes you feel responsible to yourself - perhaps on the basis of periodically removing the filter and checking its condition.
  • The wiki article "Cabin filter change" contains all the required information (including part numbers) and a "how to" replacement guide.


Notes on engine coolant

  • For Jimny 3 types 1-4 (1998-2005), Suzuki did not place any specific requirements for the type of engine coolant during their production era, apart that it has to be ethylene-glycol based (98% of engine coolants are).
  • However, ever since Jimny 3 type 5 (produced in 2005) until the end of Jimny 3 production in 2018, Suzuki has added a clear warning in the user manuals that only silicate-free ethylene-glycol coolants should be used both in petrol and in diesel Jimnys 3.
  • To make the story short, it turned out that the manufacturer learned (through several years of experience) that silicated engine coolants do long term damage to its engines cooling systems.
    • Therefore, the requirement to use a non-silicated engine coolant should be "retroactively" applied to every Jimny 3 ever produced since 1998 (as is stated in all the tables below).
      • Another thing which Suzuki does not mention explicitly, but rather implicitly (by strongly recommending its own genuine engine coolant to eliminate the risks of engine damage) is that the coolant should preferably also be phosphated and 2-EHA free.
  • All this high-tech babble is more thoroughly elaborated in the wiki article "Fluids and filters - proper selection".


Other notes

  • Calculate miles from kilometers by dividing kilometers by 1.61.


Jimny 3 with G13BB petrol engine, UK

Gen3-100x100.jpg


  • G13BB engine has 59 kW / 80 HP of power and 1298 cm3 capacity.
  • All Jimnys 3 used this engine from year 1998 to year 2000/2001/2002 (depending on market), when G13BB engine was superseded with M13A engine.
    • However, G13BB engine was still used in many "cabrio" / soft top Jimnys 3 even until year 2005/2006.

Notes:

  • The user manual for DDiS Jimnys 3 strongly warns against using engine oils with "X"W-30 viscosity, as engine damage is promised in that case.
  • ('1) If you can not find ACEA B3 or B4 engine oil, imperfect alternative is ACEA C3.
    • ACEA C3 engine oils might not provide adequate engine wear protection if top quality (very low sulphur) diesel fuel is not used.
  • ('2) Nowhere officially specified - measured in practice.
  • ('3) Shouldn't the engine coolant pump also be replaced every time as a part of this set / procedure?
    • User manual does not mention any replacement interval for the engine coolant pump, but most aftermarket manufacturers offer this spare part set as "coolant pump + timing belt + tensioner".
  • ('4) If the diesel fuel filter has a water drain valve, drain the water from it during every engine oil change.
