Questions About 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500’s Transmission

  • 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.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   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. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Avalanche 2500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Chevrolet. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Chevrolet Avalanche 2500? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Chevrolet Avalanche 2500, potentially causing transmission problems.
