Questions About 1984 Buick Regal’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Regal’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Regal's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Buick Regal’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform.
