2002 Pontiac Grand Am 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Grand Am’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Grand Am transmission fluid need to be checked? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
