1983 GMC G1500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my GMC's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a GMC? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your G1500’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my G1500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your GMC G1500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
