2008 Pontiac Solstice Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Pontiac Solstice? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Solstice’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Solstice's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Pontiac Solstice’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Pontiac Solstice leak transmission fluid? Yes. Pontiac Solstice transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
  • Who fixes Pontiac Solstice transmission leaks? If you have a problem with your transmission system, don’t hesitate to visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care. Our expert technicians can diagnose and repair Solstice transmission leaks and other issues. Schedule an appointment today!
  • Can I still drive my Pontiac Solstice if it has a transmission fluid leak? It’s not advisable to drive your Solstice if it’s leaking transmission fluid. Your transmission system needs transmission fluid to function properly, and a leak can lead to significant problems, such as overheating or reduced performance. You might even experience transmission failure.
