Questions About 2001 Chevrolet Suburban 1500’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Chevrolet Suburban 1500? 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 Suburban 1500’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Suburban 1500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Suburban 1500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Suburban 1500’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.
