Pontiac Firebird transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Pontiac Firebird transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Firebird’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2001 Pontiac Firebird’s Transmission

  • 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. 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. 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.
