Might be a good idea to have fluid & filter changed, due to possibility of moisture build up etc. from sitting. Certainly the most inexpensive, and reasonable solution. Have all connectors removed & sprayed with contact cleaner too.

I have a 1993 Buick Lasabre and I need to have the transmission replaced, can I replace it with a 1994 or a 1995 transmission. Thanks.


The tranny is a 4T60 E yes other year models will fit , however make sure the electrical connections have the same number and terminal locations ,the easiest way to find out is to call a salvage yard and give the the year model ,engine size , from the VIN

hope this helps

1993 Buick LeSabre surges and almost dies intermittently


Check fuel rail pressure.

Add fuel to beyond 1/2 tank.

A weak fuel pump do not like to ran low on gas.


When was the last gas filter and fuel pump change?

90-120,000 miles is the typical change out.

Fuel pump like to quit on a HOT day.

Test the pressure and see is it within specification.


Good luck

There is a recall for the transmission that involves your exact problem. Call a dealer and see if your VIN is eligible for the recall. Check the NHTSA website for the exact details.

Transmission slipping--disconnected and reconnected sylinoid and woks again but for how long??


theres a good chance that,if the tranny wasnt serviced often enough the filter and the fluid wasnt any good. so possibly with the new parts and new filter and fluid,it should extend the life alot

97 buick lasabre trans slips in overdrive


Either the cruise control is going out or the torque converter clutch circuit is going out on the trannys overdrive. Do you have check engine light codes? If so you will need to have a computer hooked up to read them. Darrel coleman also has a problem with his car like this and I have suggested the same thing to him

If the trans.oil is dark brown in color and smell's burnt your tranny is probably on it's last leg.If tou have bad pump pressure or low oil you will have to rev the eng to get it to build enough pressure to move.Your detent cable or kick down cable is for passing,when you step on the gas when passing someone this cable is pulled causing the trans. to go into a lower gear and when you let off the gas it should shift back into a higher gear.if it's out of adjustment it will kickdown to soon or to late.If your car has alot of miles it may be in need of a filter and fluid change,but usually when slipping occures its to late and you will need a replacement tranny.Hope this was helpfull.
