Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Pontiac Vibe transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Pontiac Vibe transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Vibe’s not even driveable.

2009 Pontiac Vibe Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Pontiac's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, 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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Vibe's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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.
