1984 Chevrolet C10 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Chevrolet's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C10’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
