What’s the Importance of Your 1988 Caprice’s Transmission?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Chevrolet Caprice transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

1988 Chevrolet Caprice Transmission Q&A

  • 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.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, 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.
  • How often does my Caprice transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Chevrolet Caprice’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
