Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre
I have a 2000 Buick Lasbre (136,000 miles) that jerks when I go up hills as well as off and on when I drive flat. The engine light came on all of a sudden too. It seems like when it jerks, it is struggling to change gears...not sure, can someone please give me some idea of what could be wrong so I'll have an idea before I take it to a mechanic? I can't afford to get ripped off!
By jerking I am assuming you mean abrupt shifting? If so, my 2000 Buick Lesabre did the same thing going from first gear to second and then again when it went into overdrive. The culprit was the pressure control solenoid in the transmission. There is a pressure test to determine if it is bad. Apparently sediment from the trans fluid can cause this soleniod to stick and this coould be the cause of your problem.

I had a chevy lumina that was doing the same way. All it took to fix it was a tune up- new sparkplugs, plug wires, and a new fuel filter. If that don't fix the problem get the transmission serviced with a new filter and oil.
Good luck and God Bless
