What Does Your GMC C3500 Transmission Do?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1991 GMC C3500 transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore GMC C3500 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your C3500 isn’t working at all.

1991 GMC C3500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your GMC's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C3500’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C3500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my C3500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your GMC C3500 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
