1994 GMC Safari Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 I tow in a GMC Safari? 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. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Safari's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1994 Safari’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
