2007 Pontiac Vibe Transmission Service

Why is Your 2007 Vibe’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. 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. They're often easy to notice. Pontiac Vibe transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Pontiac Vibe transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Vibe’s not even driveable.

2007 Pontiac Vibe Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Pontiac's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Vibe’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Vibe's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Pontiac Vibe transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
