1988 Dodge Lancer Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Dodge Lancer? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Lancer’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Lancer's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Dodge Lancer’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
