They're often easy to notice. Pontiac Aztek transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

2003 Pontiac Aztek Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Pontiac? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Aztek's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Pontiac Aztek transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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 Pontiac, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
