Questions About 2002 Buick LeSabre’s Transmission

  • 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 my Buick tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your LeSabre’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your LeSabre is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my LeSabre's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 LeSabre’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.
