2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? 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 Avalanche 1500? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Avalanche 1500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Avalanche 1500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
