Questions About 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix’s Transmission

  • 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 I tow in a Pontiac Grand Prix? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Grand Prix towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Grand Prix transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Pontiac Grand Prix’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Pontiac, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
