1988 Chevrolet Camaro Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Chevrolet Camaro? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Camaro towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Camaro's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Chevrolet Camaro’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform.
