1990 Buick Skylark Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Buick's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Buick tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • When should I have my Skylark's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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.
