Questions About 1984 Pontiac Firebird’s Transmission

  • 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. 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Firebird’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Firebird's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Pontiac Firebird 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
