1996 Buick Century Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Buick's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Buick tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, 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.
  • Does my Century's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1996 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
