1987 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Caprice’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Caprice is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Caprice's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
