1999 Dodge Intrepid 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. 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 Intrepid transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Dodge Intrepid transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Dodge Intrepid? Yes. Dodge Intrepid transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems.
