What’s the Importance of Your 2000 Cavalier’s Transmission?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Chevrolet Cavalier transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Chevrolet Cavalier transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Cavalier isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier’s Transmission

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Cavalier’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Cavalier is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Cavalier's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Chevrolet Cavalier 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.
