1994 GMC C3500 Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my GMC tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your C3500 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.
  • Does my C3500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
