Question about 1998 Buick Regal
I have a 1998 buick regal gs supercharge, it started slipping in 1st gear a few days ago. when i am at a stop light and if i press the gas too much its like it is not gripping on the gears if i barelly press the gas till i am in 2nd it does not do it, it only does it in 1st once i get passed 1st it seems alright so far. is there any other possible solutions than replacing the transmission, for they are pretty expensive for this car, and for what i paid for it, it just don't seem like i should put that much money in the vehicle..
Just check the buttom of the pulleys or buttom of the car for leaks or tensioner pulley , sometimes bearings in tensioner wear out i had similar issue with gear slipping it happened to be a leaky water pump and antifreeze getting on the pulleys while the car is running, causing belt to slip and tranny slip feel similar as you described , i replaced belt and water pump and no more issue
