1984 Dodge B150 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Dodge? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Dodge B150? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your B150’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your B150 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my B150 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Dodge B150’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Dodge'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.
