What’s the Importance of Your 1987 Impulse’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Isuzu Impulse transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Isuzu Impulse transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Impulse’s not even driveable.

1987 Isuzu Impulse Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Isuzu'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.
  • How much can I tow in a Isuzu Impulse? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Impulse 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 Impulse transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Isuzu Impulse’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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 Isuzu, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Isuzu Impulse leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Isuzu Impulse can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Impulse ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
