1990 Buick Regal Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and 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 small it is. Defying your Regal towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Regal transmission fluid need to be checked? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
