1996 Dodge Intrepid Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Dodge? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Dodge? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Intrepid towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Intrepid's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Dodge Intrepid transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
