1983 GMC G2500 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a GMC G2500? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your G2500’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your G2500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my G2500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1983 G2500’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
