1984 GMC Jimmy 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. 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. Defying your Jimmy towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Jimmy is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Jimmy's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your GMC Jimmy’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
