Suspect sludge in filter. Check fluid to see if red OR dark and burnt smelling. If not bright red...change fluid and filter.

My 2003 Buick Regal wouldn't start on a very cold day. I came back the next day and decided to shift it out of park and back into park and it started right up. What could cause that to happen? 3800 engine


When you said "it wouldn't start" did it turn over (starter cranking the engine) or did it act like the battery was dead and wouldn't crank, even though all the dash lights lit up?

If it simply didn't crank over but then by you shifting it out of park, then back into park, may indicate a park/neutral switch problem.

It may have been something as simple as the shifter, when the vehicle was last parked, didn't fully engage the park/neutral switch into the park position. BUT by you moving the shifter out and back into park it engaged the switch.

Cold weather can do some strange things sometimes when it comes to mechanical devices. IF it acts up again, simply try the "trick" that worked the last time.

It may just be temperature related and may not give any more problems once the weather warms up.

Hope this helps.

Did you try pushing up on the shifter while trying to turn the key? Perhaps your grease is getting cold on the shifting mechanism and it needs new grease or oiling.

In cold weather the shift lever will lock in park on my 1998 Firebird. It takes a while before it releases. Why does it do that?


the inter lock system on your car requires you to push the brake pedal before it will let the shifter move,this operation is done with the use of an electric solenoid,
if cold weather is affecting it ,you may need it changed,it not an expensive thing
