2002 Pontiac Aztek Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Pontiac Aztek? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Aztek towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Aztek transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Pontiac Aztek transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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 Pontiac. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
