1987 Chevrolet Corvette Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Chevrolet's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 light the load might seem. Defying your Corvette towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • When should I have my Corvette's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Chevrolet Corvette transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Chevrolet, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
