1990 Buick Century Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Buick? 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 Buick? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Century’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.

Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Buick's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
