Questions About 2009 Pontiac G6’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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 G6 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your G6 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my G6 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Pontiac G6 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
