Buick Roadmaster Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Buick Roadmaster


The auto level ride compressor may fail causing the rear of the vehicle to ride to high or too low.

The idler arm or pitman arm may wear causing looseness in the steering. When this occurs the front suspension will not be able to be aligned correctly.

The transmission extension housing seal may leak fluid, replacing the worn seal will commonly correct this concern.
