Questions About 2008 Dodge Durango’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • What can I tow in a Dodge? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's 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.
  • How often does my Durango transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 Durango’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.
