Questions About 2000 GMC C3500’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your GMC? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my GMC tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your C3500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my C3500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2000 C3500’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
