2002 Pontiac Sunfire Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Pontiac's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Sunfire transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Pontiac Sunfire transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
