1987 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.
  • How much can I tow in a GMC G1500? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your G1500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my G1500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 G1500’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
