Why is Your 1984 Riviera’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Riviera’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1984 Buick Riviera transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Buick Riviera transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Riviera at all.

Questions About 1984 Buick Riviera’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. 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. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Riviera is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Riviera's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Buick Riviera’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Buick, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Buick Riviera? Yes. Buick Riviera transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.

  • Can I drive my Buick Riviera with a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Riviera to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
