Questions About 1989 Pontiac LeMans’s Transmission

Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 LeMans’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Pontiac's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Pontiac LeMans transmission fluid leak? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Pontiac LeMans, potentially causing transmission problems.
