1996 GMC K2500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your K2500’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my K2500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your GMC K2500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your GMC, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
