2005 Pontiac Montana Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2005 Montana’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Montana’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Pontiac Montana transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Pontiac Montana transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Montana’s not even driveable.

2005 Pontiac Montana Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Montana transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2005 Montana’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.
