Questions About 2009 Pontiac G3’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 G3? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your G3’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your G3 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my G3's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Pontiac G3 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.
