What Does Your GMC C1500 Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. GMC C1500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let GMC C1500 transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your C1500 at all.

1990 GMC C1500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my GMC's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a GMC C1500? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your C1500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my C1500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your GMC C1500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your GMC. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
