Questions About 1991 GMC Safari’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Safari’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Safari's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1991 Safari’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
