1999 GMC C1500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • How much can I tow in a GMC C1500? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C1500’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C1500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C1500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your GMC C1500’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
