What’s the Importance of Your 2001 Century’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Buick Century transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Buick Century transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Century at all.

2001 Buick Century Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Buick's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick Century? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Century towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Century's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Buick Century 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 Buick, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
