2001 GMC Jimmy Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your GMC's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Jimmy’s towing capacity. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Jimmy’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
