1986 Dodge D150 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Dodge's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Dodge? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your D150 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my D150's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Dodge D150’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
