1986 Chrysler Laser Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 1986 Laser’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. They're often easy to notice. Chrysler Laser transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Chrysler Laser transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Laser’s not even driveable.

1986 Chrysler Laser Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Chrysler's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chrysler tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Laser's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 Laser’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
