What Does Your Pontiac Sunfire Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. 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 Sunfire’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Pontiac Sunfire transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Pontiac Sunfire transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Sunfire’s not even driveable.

1995 Pontiac Sunfire 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.
  • What can I tow in a Pontiac? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sunfire’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sunfire is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Sunfire's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1995 Sunfire’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
