1984 Chevrolet C20 Transmission Service

What Does Your Chevrolet C20 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Chevrolet C20 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Chevrolet C20 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your C20 at all.

1984 Chevrolet C20 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my C20's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Chevrolet C20’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Chevrolet, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
