1990 Chevrolet C1500 Questions & Answers

  • 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.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your C1500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C1500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my C1500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Chevrolet C1500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
