1985 Buick Century Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Buick'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.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick Century? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Century towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Century is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Century's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Century’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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 Buick, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
