1989 Buick Regal Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Buick? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick Regal? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Regal transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 Regal’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
