Why is Your 1990 Electra’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Electra’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Buick Electra transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Buick Electra transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Electra at all.

1990 Buick Electra Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Buick? 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 I tow in a Buick Electra? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Electra towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Electra's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Buick Electra transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
