About Buick Roadmaster

Once being Buick's flagship vehicle, Buick Roadmaster was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's Buick Motor Division from 1936 t0 1958, and again from 1991 to 1996 as a full-size vehicle. Originally introduced to celebrate the engineering improvements and design advancements, Roadmaster was the successor of the Series 90, namely, the Limited. But after being manufactured through eight generations, due to a combination of overcrowding among Buick's high-end sedans and pressure from full-size SUVs on the Estate wagon, Roadmaster was discontinued and replaced by the Buick Park Avenue. As the last-generation Buick Roadmaster is more familiar among consumers, we will focus on this one.
The eighth-generation Buick Roadmaster was produced from 1991 to 1996 as a returned model for the 1991 model year after a 33-year absence. Built based on the GM B platform, Roadmaster was offered in two body styles, 4-door sedan and 5-door station wagon. As Buick's largest vehicle, Buick Roadmaster shared chassis with luxury and performance cars such as the Chevrolet Caprice Police Package and Cadillac Fleetwood, F-bodied Chevrolet Camaro Z28 and Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. During its lifetime, Roadmaster was powered by a 5.0 L V8 rated at 170 hp and a 5.7 L V8 producing 180 hp, and the latter one's power output was increased to 260 hp in 1994. Engines sent power through the 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.

Buick Roadmaster Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Though boasting big interior space and suitable for family use, Buick Roadmaster is prevalent among customers with big family or need for large space. However, until now, it is a model with at least twenty-one years old, you have to pay more attention to these common problems on your Roadmaster:
First, the engine cuts off and cooling system failure could be regarded as the disaster for both the Buick Roadmaster and its drivers. Sometimes, engine failure happens due to cooling system failure, which in return to deteriorate the engine performance and all these become a vicious cycle. Fortunately, some experienced Roadmaster drivers offer some recognizable and practical signs to help diagnose and solve this issue as soon as possible. First of all, you may notice the temperature gauge reading being very high or changing erratically, hear rattling sounds or loud knocking from the engine while idling and find leaking coolant on the ground. Then the engine would start to run roughly such as misfiring, decrease in power and acceleration and activate the Check Engine Light. Therefore, please make sure the Roadmaster EGR filter, EGR valve, thermostat gasket, EGR valve gasket, timing chain, crankshaft pulley, fuel rail and radiator hose are in good working condition.
Second, for Buick Roadmaster drivers, the suspension failure is also a headache as it often happens unexpectedly, which is not true. Many Roadmaster drivers only do not attach enough importance to this issue as they think an uncomfortable and unsteady driving trip is caused by harsh road conditions. But in fact, beginning with the rattling or squeaking noises from underneath the vehicle, the tire wear is becoming uneven and excessive, the vehicle is tending to tilt to one side and the response in handling is becoming sluggish due to intense car vibration, loose steering wheel and unintentional steering. And all these could be attributed to the Roadmaster pitman arm, sway bar link, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing, wheel bearing and shock absorber.
However, when faced with dealing problems on your Buick Roadmaster, performing routine maintenance on some vulnerable auto parts in time to prevent problems from happening is always a more effective way. The first step for you is to distinguish what parts of your Roadmaster need routine maintenance in order to save time and energy. Electrical auto parts are exposed to over usage all the time, thus, please maintain the headlight switch, throttle position sensor and door lock actuator routinely.
