Questions About 2001 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a GMC? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Safari towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Safari is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Safari's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your GMC Safari’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
