Chevrolet Transmissions

By Mister Transmission

One the most enduring and durable line of vehicles on Canada’s roads, Chevy cars, trucks, and SUVs do require regular transmission maintenance and service

The name ‘Chevrolet’ resonates in the minds of generations of Canadian drivers simply because the automobile maker’s line of cars and trucks have been among the most durable for decades. As with any vehicle make and model, Chevrolet transmissions demand regular service and preventative maintenance to keep them humming along.

Whether fluid leaks, flashing warning lights on the dashboard, or a light, burning odour, the signs of a failing transmission or the need for a transmission repair in any Chevy model is the same as with any other vehicle.

The easiest and most inexpensive way to keep tabs on the health of your Chevy transmission is by checking the transmission fluid with the dipstick. Before you do, we recommended that you consult your owner’s manual and follow the instructions provided by Chevrolet. Alternatively, book an appointment at the Mister Transmission location nearest to you, and one of our expert technicians will be happy to check your transmission fluid level for you.

Manual and Automatic Chevy Transmission Maintenance

Whether your Chevrolet contains a manual or automatic transmission, having a certified mechanic inspect the transmission fluid and the hydraulic clutch is recommended every six months for the average driver.

Your owner’s manual will also state what type of transmission fluid your Chevy uses, as well as the recommended maintenance schedule. Otherwise, consider having the transmission fluid changed at 80,000 km, 160,000 km, and 240,000 km if you drive your Chevy car or truck in any of these scenarios regularly:

  • Urban driving in extreme temperatures (hot and cold) year-round
  • Hilly, mountainous terrain or construction sites
  • Towing or hauling of any kind, including campers, trailers, etc.
  • Regular idling or stop-and-go usage as experienced by taxis, police, and service delivery vehicles

If you suspect your Chevrolet’s transmission is not performing as it  should, or if you have questions about preventative transmission maintenance, contact us. Take advantage of our free 21-point multi-check inspection and avoid the cost and aggravation associated with a failing transmission.
