Questions About 1993 GMC G1500’s Transmission

  • 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 offering to tow something for a friend, 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 1993 G1500’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
