2006 Buick LaCrosse Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Buick's brakes? 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick LaCrosse? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your LaCrosse towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my LaCrosse transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Buick LaCrosse’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Buick. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can my Buick LaCrosse leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Buick LaCrosse can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your LaCrosse ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
