2016 Chevrolet Caprice Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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.
  • How often does my Caprice transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Chevrolet Caprice transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Chevrolet's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
