Questions About 2004 GMC Safari’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 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 Safari’s towing capacity. 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.
  • When should I have my Safari's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your GMC Safari’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
