1987 Pontiac 6000 Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Pontiac 6000 Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. They're often easy to notice. Pontiac 6000 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Pontiac 6000 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your 6000 at all.
