    my 1998 buick regal is slipping in 1st gear. when i am at a stop if i press the gas too hard its like its not gripping some where it don't want to move but as soon as i let up off the gas and press it lightly then its fine. it only does that in 1st gear right now. i am wondering if i am going to have to replace the transmission or if there are other possible soloutions to the problem.

Buick Regal Gs supercharger nose assembly please help if you can


the 3.8" supercharger (belt) pulley? You need a special tool as they are press fit.
www.intence-racing.com and www.3800performance.com

both carry it and offer the tool for rent as well.

Much of the noise comes from the coupler, however there are case (needle) bearings as well that wear, Those are much more difficult to replace.

Hello


locate the vacume lines under the top cover(plastic lines) of the engine, then trace them down to the lower front of the engine compartment, you will find the canister, and the solenoid.
