1991 Chevrolet C3500 Questions & Answers

  • 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 it is. 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 C3500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C3500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Chevrolet C3500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
