1985 GMC C2500 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your GMC? 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 C2500? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your C2500 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.
  • When should I have my C2500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your GMC C2500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your GMC's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
