Why is Your 2011 Canyon’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Canyon’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. GMC Canyon transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore GMC Canyon transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Canyon isn’t working at all.

2011 GMC Canyon Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • How much can I tow in a GMC Canyon? 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 Canyon’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Canyon transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your GMC Canyon 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
