Transmission Services for 1983 Chevrolet Citation

What Does Your Chevrolet Citation Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Chevrolet Citation transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Chevrolet Citation transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Citation’s not even driveable.

1983 Chevrolet Citation Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Citation's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Chevrolet Citation’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
