Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Plymouth Gran Fury transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

1986 Plymouth Gran Fury Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Plymouth'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 I tow in a Plymouth Gran Fury? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Gran Fury’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Gran Fury's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Plymouth Gran Fury 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 Plymouth's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Plymouth Gran Fury? Yes. Plymouth Gran Fury transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues.
