2002 Pontiac Firebird Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Pontiac Firebird? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. 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.
  • Does my Firebird's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 Firebird’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
