Questions About 1986 Chevrolet C10 Suburban’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is.

Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
