Questions About 1983 Chevrolet Chevette’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Chevrolet's brakes? 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Chevrolet Chevette? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Chevette is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Chevette's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1983 Chevette’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can Chevrolet Chevette transmission fluid leak? Yes. Chevrolet Chevette transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Who fixes Chevrolet Chevette transmission leaks? Look to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for Chevette transmission system diagnostics and repairs. Schedule an appointment online today.
  • Is it okay to drive a Chevette with a transmission fluid leak? It’s not advisable to drive your Chevette if it’s leaking transmission fluid. Your transmission system needs transmission fluid to function properly, and a leak can lead to significant problems, such as overheating or reduced performance. You might even experience transmission failure.
