What’s the Importance of Your 2011 Lucerne’s Transmission?

Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Buick Lucerne transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

2011 Buick Lucerne Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Buick's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick Lucerne? 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 Lucerne’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Lucerne is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Lucerne transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Buick Lucerne’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
  • Can Buick Lucerne transmission fluid leak? Yes, your Buick Lucerne can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Lucerne 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.
