Question about 1986 Buick Regal
No there not related. The vacuum modulator on the trans is for forward gears. Smooth shifting. When it is bad, you get hard shifts between 1st to 2nd and so on. Reverse is not hard to fix, but you have to pull the transmission. Most likely a split ring broke. The blend door problem is because of a broken vacuum line. They usually break around the engine (heat) and you can fix them with a piece of rubber hose. If you don't see the break, then run a new hose from the engine to the controller. But check for vacuum at the controller first. If you have vacuum there, then check for vacuum at the actuator. No vacuum at the actuator, replace the controller. Vacuum at the actuator, replace the actuator..

sounds like the drivers temp door actuator is not working should be located on the drivers side of the air box down by the gas pedal or center dash area.

The actuator door on the driver's side is out of position and needs to be reset. Remove the negative battery cable for 1/2 hour to reset the computer. Start the HVAC system and you should be able to hear the door adjusting itself and cold should come out of the driver's side vent.

you have a bad actuator motor or a broken blend door in the heater box, the noise you hear is the skipping of the gears in the actuator motor, the ehating system along with ac use motors to move doors inside the heater box, the doors control the flow of the air and the temp, you will need to locate the bad one by unplugging one at a time, when noise stops you have the right one, remove it by removing screws that hold it to box. with motor removed look at the hole that controls the door, you will see a small square that the motor turns ,this id part of the door hinge, you should be able to turn side to side, this swings door left and right like a rood door, open or closed, if the door swings good then the actuator is bad, let me get a picture to help you located it, you will located the heater box in the location of the noise, behind glove box, try to acess from the bottom of the dash and also remove glovebox,hope this helps, good day
