1985 Chevrolet C20 Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Chevrolet C20 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms.

They're often easy to notice. Chevrolet C20 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Chevrolet C20 transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your C20’s not even driveable.

Questions About 1985 Chevrolet C20’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C20 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my C20 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 C20’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.
