2004 Pontiac Aztek Transmission Service

What Does Your Pontiac Aztek Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Pontiac Aztek transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Pontiac Aztek transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Aztek at all.

2004 Pontiac Aztek Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Pontiac's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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 load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Aztek’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Aztek's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Pontiac Aztek’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 Pontiac. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
