Questions About 1989 Dodge B150’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Dodge'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 Dodge B150? Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • 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. 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 Dodge. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
