2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Pontiac? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Grand Prix’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Grand Prix is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Grand Prix's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Pontiac Grand Prix 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.
