Questions About 2001 Pontiac Bonneville’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 my Pontiac tow?   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 Bonneville’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

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.
