Why is Your 1999 Cavalier’s Transmission So Important?

They're often easy to notice. Chevrolet Cavalier transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Chevrolet Cavalier transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Cavalier’s not even driveable.

Questions About 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Cavalier’s towing capacity. 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 Cavalier transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 Cavalier’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
