What Does Your Pontiac Bonneville Transmission Do?

They're often easy to notice. Pontiac Bonneville transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Pontiac Bonneville transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Bonneville isn’t working at all.

1985 Pontiac Bonneville Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Pontiac's brakes? 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 Bonneville? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Bonneville 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.
  • Does my Bonneville's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Bonneville’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
