What’s the Importance of Your 1996 C1500’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your C1500’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Chevrolet C1500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Chevrolet C1500 transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your C1500 at all.

1996 Chevrolet C1500 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.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C1500’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my C1500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Chevrolet C1500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
