1997 Chevrolet Blazer Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Blazer’s towing capacity. 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 1997 Blazer’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Chevrolet, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
