Questions About 1986 GMC G2500’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.
  • How much can my GMC tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my G2500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
