Questions About 1991 Pontiac Bonneville’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Pontiac's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Bonneville’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Bonneville is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Bonneville transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1991 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
