2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Transmission Service

What Does Your Chevrolet Cavalier Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Chevrolet Cavalier transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Chevrolet Cavalier transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Cavalier at all.

2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chevrolet tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Cavalier towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • How often does my Cavalier transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Chevrolet Cavalier 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
