1983 Chevrolet C10 Suburban Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Chevrolet's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your C10 Suburban towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C10 Suburban is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my C10 Suburban's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Chevrolet C10 Suburban’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
