What Does Your GMC Acadia Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. GMC Acadia transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let GMC Acadia transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Acadia isn’t working at all.

2017 GMC Acadia Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my GMC'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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a GMC? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Acadia is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Acadia transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your GMC Acadia’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 GMC, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
