What’s the Importance of Your 1990 Astro’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Chevrolet Astro transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Chevrolet Astro transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Astro’s not even driveable.

1990 Chevrolet Astro Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Chevrolet's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Astro's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Chevrolet Astro 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 Chevrolet, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
