2005 Pontiac Vibe Transmission Service

Why is Your 2005 Vibe’s Transmission So Important?

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 Vibe’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2005 Pontiac Vibe transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Pontiac Vibe transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Vibe isn’t working at all.

2005 Pontiac Vibe Questions & Answers

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Pontiac? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Vibe towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Vibe's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Pontiac Vibe’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
