1990 GMC G2500 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 it is. Defying your G2500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • How often does my G2500 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1990 G2500’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
