Questions About 1984 Buick Skyhawk’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Buick's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick Skyhawk? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Skyhawk’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Skyhawk is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Skyhawk's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Buick Skyhawk’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Buick Skyhawk transmission fluid leak? Yes. Buick Skyhawk transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Who can fix my  Buick Skyhawk transmission leak? When your Skyhawk transmission is acting up, Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to help. Book an appointment today for transmission system diagnostics and repairs.
  • Can I still drive my Buick Skyhawk if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Skyhawk with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
