1988 Pontiac Grand Am Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Pontiac? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Grand Am's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1988 Grand Am’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
