Questions About 1987 Dodge Charger’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Dodge? 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Dodge Charger? 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 Charger’s towing capacity. 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 Charger transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 Charger’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 Dodge. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
