Why is Your 1990 C2500’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Chevrolet C2500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Chevrolet C2500 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your C2500’s not even driveable.

1990 Chevrolet C2500 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.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your C2500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C2500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my C2500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Chevrolet C2500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
