2003 Pontiac Vibe Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2003 Vibe’s Transmission?

Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2003 Pontiac Vibe transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Pontiac Vibe transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Vibe at all.

2003 Pontiac Vibe Transmission Q&A

  • 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.
  • 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 Vibe transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Pontiac Vibe’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.
