Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Buick Riviera transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 1989 Buick Riviera’s Transmission
