2002 Dodge Intrepid Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Dodge tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Intrepid 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.
  • 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. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Dodge. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
