Questions About 1984 GMC C2500’s Transmission

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my GMC tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your C2500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C2500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C2500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your GMC C2500 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
