1996 Chevrolet C2500 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 a 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 C2500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C2500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Chevrolet C2500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
