2012 Chevrolet Avalanche Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2012 Avalanche’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Chevrolet Avalanche transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Chevrolet Avalanche transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Avalanche at all.

2012 Chevrolet Avalanche Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Chevrolet's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Avalanche towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Avalanche's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Chevrolet Avalanche transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
