1988 Buick Skylark Questions & Answers

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Skylark’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Skylark's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Buick Skylark’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
