1991 Pontiac Grand Am Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Grand Am’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Grand Am's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Pontiac Grand Am’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
