Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. GMC G1500 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 don’t pay attention to GMC G1500 transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your G1500 at all.

1985 GMC G1500 Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 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? Caring for your GMC G1500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your GMC, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
