Questions About 1984 GMC Caballero’s Transmission

  • How much can my GMC tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Caballero’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Caballero is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Caballero transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your GMC Caballero’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your GMC's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my GMC Caballero? Yes. GMC Caballero transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems.
