Questions About 1991 Pontiac Sunbird’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Sunbird towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Sunbird's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Pontiac Sunbird’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
