What’s the Importance of Your 1987 Camaro’s Transmission?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1987 Chevrolet Camaro transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Chevrolet Camaro transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Camaro at all.

1987 Chevrolet Camaro 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. 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 small. Defying your Camaro towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Camaro is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Camaro's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 Camaro’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
