1988 Chevrolet Blazer Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Chevrolet Blazer? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Blazer towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Blazer is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Blazer's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1988 Blazer’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
