1989 Chevrolet C3500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • 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 load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C3500’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C3500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my C3500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Chevrolet C3500’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
