1997 GMC Jimmy Questions & Answers

  • 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • 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. 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.
