1985 Renault Encore Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Renault'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 my Renault tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Encore’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Encore's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Encore’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Renault's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Renault Encore? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Renault Encore, potentially causing transmission problems.
