I had same issue with my 95 LeSabre. Ordered the PRO VATS Bypass (didn't want to build one), installed it and the car now starts firsttime everytime. DIY (guide only) - $37 or PRO - $179
Lisa, how long was the key in the one position? For the heck of it, put the car in neutral, and try to start it. It's possible the neutral safety switch is bad, which could cause the problem. It should start in neutral if that's the problem. Let me know if this works, if not, I'll help further.
I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it happens again. It sounds like a valve got a little stuck. It's usually caused by dirty fluid. If it's bothering you I'd recommend replacing the transmission fluid if you haven't already. It can be full of worn or dirty fluid and still not work properly. Its a late model car so i don't think its the clutches. Hope this helps -J
sounds like the torque converter has some broken fins. switching to a full synthetic tranny fluid would build tranny pressure faster. it would be costly, but an improvement if the car is not worth taking out the tranny to replace the converter. was the old fluid red or black? if red then this is the converter, if black then the tranny will need a rebuild or replacing.
