What’s the Importance of Your 2009 G5’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Pontiac G5 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Pontiac G5 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your G5 at all.

2009 Pontiac G5 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Pontiac's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Pontiac G5? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your G5’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your G5 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my G5's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2009 G5’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
