2009 Chevrolet Avalanche Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Avalanche towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Avalanche's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Chevrolet Avalanche’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
