Why is Your 1987 Firebird’s Transmission So Important?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Pontiac Firebird transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

1987 Pontiac Firebird 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.
  • What can I tow in a Pontiac? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Firebird towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Firebird is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Firebird's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Pontiac Firebird’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
