1985 Buick Electra 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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 Electra’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Electra is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Electra transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Electra’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.
