Questions About 1996 Chevrolet Blazer’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? 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. 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.
  • When should I have my Blazer's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Chevrolet Blazer 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
