2005 Pontiac Grand Prix Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? 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.
  • 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.
  • How often does my Grand Prix transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Pontiac Grand Prix transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
