1985 Chevrolet Astro Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Chevrolet's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Chevrolet Astro? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Astro’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Astro is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Astro's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Chevrolet Astro’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Chevrolet's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
