    i changed the spark plugs about 3 months ago..by hesitation i mean it revs higher but takes longer to shift out of first gear then almost clunks in..this is when i step on it hard off the line. and the gear is in overdrive. when in drive it seems fine..less hesitation to slip? hope thats abit more details for you thanks.

The car shifts extremely hard and has a hard time accelerating


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt, the car tends to shift hard. If the problem still persists, replace the torque converter. The torque converter controls the shifting and once replaced a smooth ride is noticeable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

94 buick park ave runs great but with a light load it shakes, accelerates good and in park or neutral is smooth changed plugs and wires


Several possibilities having to do with the torque converter clutch and TCC solenoid:

1. Replace transmission fluid, use a synthetic Dex VI, do a complete flush with pan removal and filter replacement

2. Check all grounds related to the transmission control solenoids, clean them and ensure good electrical contact.

3. Rebuild transmission, the TCC friction material is worn out.

1993 buick park ave will not change gears


Have your Catalytic Converter checked for free flow, (if it is stopped up with calcification from unspent fuel, then the car will have trouble moving at all). A tell tale sign of oncoming Catalytic Converter problems is the overdrive balking or wanting to hesitate, when the transmission is in overdrive the vehicle is running at its lowest r.p.m. and so like at idle it will stumble or hesitate, or cut the engine altogeter, for the motor has to be able to exhale, to exhaust its combustion gases, in order to run properly, stopped up catalytic converters are a big problem with this car.
