1994 Buick Lesabre--transmission slipping

I have a 1994 buick lesabre that was running good until the end of december. I stopped driving it for a couple of months and started driving it last week after getting my transmission filter & fluid changed. Its not wanting to go into gear unless you put it in 1st then switch it up to overdrive. I have to do this at every stop light and stop sign. It also has a problem with starting to **** when you go faster then 45 or 50 mph.

    What has to be completely disassembled? And do you know how much it will cost me?

  • Anonymous Mar 08, 2009

    when I let my car sit over night I start my car and I try to put it into reverse or overdrive and it doesnt bite. When I put it all the way down to 1st gear and go back to overdrive it bites. Then after that the car seems to work fine for awhile until I let it sit and the problem continues to accure and Im think that this car is a lemon amd I bought it from a private owner and I think I got ripped off and I payed 2200 for it and I was wondering if this is a common problem for a 1994 Buick Lesbre

    The Transmission, the one-way is the last thing to come out. To completely rebuild the trans about 1500 dollars. If you have someone just take it apart and change only the one-way it will cost less. But if it has a lot of miles on it, it would be a good idea to just have it rebuilt.

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.

It could easily be running out of fuel - the fuel filter. And possibly the fuel pump. I would check the fuel filter first. hope this helps you, Rick

1990 buick lesabre when in drive seems like its in neautral


Hello, I'm not sure if you are still dealing with this problem, but here are a few tips.
1.When the car is running and at normal operating temperature, check the transmission fluid level. If the transmission fluid level is low, this will cause the Transmission to slip when in drive.
2.If you transmission fluid level is low, this usually indicates you have a leak. Transmission fluid does not need to be changed like other fluids such as oil.
3.You may also want to add a "stop slip" agent to you car, this may help or possibly correct the problem.
4.If all else fails, I would recommend you take you car into a certified Transmission shop. Please vote or rate this reply if you found this reply helpful.
