Questions About 1999 GMC C3500’s Transmission

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a GMC? 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 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.
  • Does my C3500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your GMC C3500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
