Questions About 1986 Buick Regal’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Buick? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Buick? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Regal towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Regal is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Regal's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Buick Regal transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
