Questions About 1986 Chevrolet C10’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Chevrolet's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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. Defying your C10 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C10 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my C10 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 C10’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Chevrolet. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
