Questions About 1995 GMC Safari’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your GMC's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
