Why is Your 1996 G3500’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. GMC G3500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let GMC G3500 transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your G3500’s not even driveable.

1996 GMC G3500 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my GMC tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your G3500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your G3500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my G3500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1996 G3500’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
