Questions About 1992 GMC K1500 Suburban’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your K1500 Suburban’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your K1500 Suburban is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. 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.
