Buick Skylark Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Buick Skylark based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.
Fuel injectors can short-circuit electrically causing a rougher than normal idle and reduced performance.
An automatic transmission fluid leak may develop from the rubber section of a transmission cooler line. In some cases the rubber section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this type of leak.
The head light assembly may not be installed correctly after a head light bulb is replaced causing the head light aim to be incorrect.
The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. Our technicians tell us when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.
