Why is Your 2011 Avalanche’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Avalanche’s performance. They're often easy to notice. 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Chevrolet Avalanche transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Avalanche isn’t working at all.

2011 Chevrolet Avalanche Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Chevrolet's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Avalanche towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Avalanche transmission fluid need to be checked? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
