Questions About 1985 Buick Regal’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Buick's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Buick? 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 Regal’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Regal’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.
