1985 GMC Caballero Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your GMC? 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.
  • What can I tow in a GMC? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Caballero’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Caballero's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your GMC Caballero 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.
