Questions About 2005 Pontiac Aztek’s Transmission

  • 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Aztek towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Aztek is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Aztek's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
