SOURCE: 1995 buick lesabre transmission problem or not?

Ok the transmission is gone anytime a transmission slips between gears its bad and the worst thing you could have done was change the fluid and filter because the only thing holding any friction on the clutches was the old fluid once you drained the old fluid and added fresh you washed the last remaining particals of clutch material off and now the transmission is totally dead. you need to replace the transmission, torque converter and flush all of the old fluid with clutch particals from the transmission cooler and lines use air and brakek cleaner to blow out the debris from othe transmission cooler lines do it from both lines first one then the other line until no more junk comes out o it will "kill" the replacement tranmission.

  • Assumed your AC unit is OK, but uneven temperature distribution. Try to throw the heater on an off severtime. A sticky valve on the heater would cause similar problem.
  • Observe the RPM while parking your car. While the AC cut in cut out (or turn on an off). If it cause no load on the engine. The freon may be low or the compressor is bad. In this case only the intake side of the evaporator is cooler than the other side.

SOURCE: 2002 Buick Lesabre drivers side window went down,

A couple of things to add to tinyp's solution. For Buicks, the regulator is bolted in, not riveted, which makes removal easier. Also, you'd better get used to this, as I have replaced 3 out of 4 window regulators on my 2002 LeSabre.

One windshield wiper not working

Maybe the nut that hold the wiper to the linkage is either loose or stripped? The linkage itself is bad?

I think your wiper motor is fine because the passenger side works and uses the same motor to move the wipers.

Passenger side wiper does not work, but the driver side works fine. i think it broke somehow when i turned on the wipers while there was ice on the windsheild. the driver's side worked, but the ice...

When you tried to move the wiper with the ice it probably broke an inner componette and connecting rodes from motor. You'll haft to inspect the rodes and motor to know what damage is done but it you can move the wiper easily by hand it's definitly broke. If it is real hard and dont want to move it might be jammed and you might be able to move it alittle to move it back into place.

The wipers on my daughter's car just stopped moving. The motor is working and I can look in the cowling and see a part of the linkage turning but the wipers wont move. They move freely when move them by...

It sounds like both wipers have let go at the outer connection of the arm. It just needs to be retightened there after you pick up the swinging cover. The metal is very soft here and is design to let go if they ice up so as not to break. You will have to position the wipers coorectly.

Cold air on passenger side warm air on drivers side

Actuator motors either get a tear in the rubber or a hose is broken and not letting vacuum assist in its opening.
You can try moving the lever by hand and see if the air gets colder on the bad side.c976077.jpg

1999 Buick Centery passenger side windshield wiper

Sounds like you need two new wiper motors. I beliveve the gearing inside the motors are worn out and now theres alot of play in them. Try wiggling the wipers with you hands and see if you can feel any up or down / side to side movement.
