1985 Chevrolet Corvette Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Chevrolet's brakes? 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 I tow in a Chevrolet Corvette? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Corvette’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Corvette is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Corvette transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Corvette’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
