1984 GMC K1500 Suburban Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my GMC's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a GMC K1500 Suburban? 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 K1500 Suburban’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my K1500 Suburban transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your GMC K1500 Suburban transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
