1996 Chrysler Cirrus Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chrysler? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Chrysler? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Cirrus towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Cirrus transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1996 Cirrus’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 Chrysler. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
