1989 Plymouth Horizon Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Plymouth? 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.
  • How much can my Plymouth tow?   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 Horizon’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Horizon is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Horizon transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Plymouth Horizon 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 Horizon? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Plymouth Horizon, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
