1997 Pontiac Bonneville Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Pontiac's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Bonneville’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 Bonneville's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Pontiac Bonneville transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Pontiac's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
