1997 GMC C3500 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 C3500? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your GMC, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
