I have the same exact issue. In when shifter is in overdrive position it makes a whirring noise that sounds like a bad auto transmission. Also the Gas mileage at 65 has dropped about 6 MPG. I found yesterday that if i put the shifter in 3 instead of OD it doesn't make the noise. I am guessing that i will need to enlist a transmission specialist to fix the overdrive thing but in the meantime it doesn't sound like it is causing an issue in 3 and the gas mileage is improved...

It is the air compressor for air ride check to see if level indicator popped off of rear control arm or if you had reolaced with regular springs then ther is a leak because of no air spring so it will try to fill it up because it doesnt know its not there

2001 Buick Lesabre starts normal everyday. Car sits three days or more will not start unless you put the accelerator pedal down at least twice


put the accelerator pedal down at least twice ? While cranking the engine ? key on ? what ? Your vehicle has electronic fuel injection ,not a carburator . Pushing the gas pedal doesn't do anything The only thing if pushing the gas pedal to the foor an holding it there will put it into clear flood mode , shutting off the fuel injectors .

On my buick lesabre limited 2001, the passenger side a/c and heat is not working.


NOT WORKING MEANS. NO AIR FLOW? OR TEMPERATURE? SOUNDS LIKE A BLEND DOOR ISSUE. IF YOU MOVE THE MODE CONTROL ON THE DASH TO A DIFFERENT POSITION DOES ANYTHING CHANGE. IF YOU HEAR A CLICKING OR POPPING NOISE THE PLASTIC ARM ON THE BLEND DOOR ACTUATOR IS BROKEN.

1992 Buick Lesabre with 43,000 miles occasionally the transmission will shutter when I accelerate and it tries to downshift from overdrive to 3rd gear,


Sounds like the valves in the valve body are sticking,and maybe a lock up converter.Try this brand ,lube guard,for transmissions,it can be found at napa auto parts,it is the beat,and will most likely fix the problem,it is for transmission shutter.

2001 grand cherokee laredo makes whirring noise when in overdrive,as soon as we take it out of overdrive the noise stops. Changed front half shafts and bearings, but the noise is still there.


The rear ends on this make an model are a weak point.
Overdrive and Reverse are usually the first gears to show symptoms when the transmission is going bad.. You should seek the advice of a mechanic.
