1984 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your C10 Suburban 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 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. 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.
