1986 Chevrolet Caprice Transmission Service

What Does Your Chevrolet Caprice Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Chevrolet Caprice transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Chevrolet Caprice transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Caprice isn’t working at all.

1986 Chevrolet Caprice 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Chevrolet Caprice? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Caprice towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • 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.
