Questions About 1991 Dodge Colt’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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Dodge tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. 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 Colt's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1991 Colt’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Dodge Colt? Yes. Dodge Colt transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Who fixes Dodge Colt transmission leaks? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair Colt transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Should I avoid driving my Dodge Colt if there is a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Colt to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
