Questions About 1985 Dodge D150’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Dodge'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.
  • What can I tow in a Dodge? 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 D150’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 D150 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 D150’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Dodge, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
