1999 Pontiac Grand Am Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Pontiac's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Pontiac Grand Am? Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Grand Am is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Grand Am's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Pontiac Grand Am 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.
