1989 GMC C2500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my GMC's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C2500’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my C2500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your GMC C2500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
