2003 Pontiac Grand Am Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Defying your Grand Am towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Grand Am's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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.
