1984 Chevrolet Caprice Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Chevrolet's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Caprice’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Caprice's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Chevrolet Caprice transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
