1. There may be a vacuum leak anywhere under the hood.
2. The vacuum governor mounted on the transmission is broken (has a ruptured diaphragm). Easy to replace, has one bolt and a small (one inch) locking plate.
3. Replacement at AutoZone is around $12~~20.

Hope this helps!

1994 Buick LeSabre has clicking noise in steering column when reversing.


Could it be coming from the dash??? That car might be old enough to have a speedo cable. Another thought, I know some Caddys that had an automatic park brake release. You had to put it in gear for the Park brake to release. Hope that helps.

Transmission clunks when shifting into reverse after initially starting the car.


It has a worn or broken rear engine mount most of the torque is absorbed in the front mounts and hanger mounts except when it is shifted into reverse.

Transmission clunking when shifting to drive from park


could be your motor mounts are bad or are going bad the rubber mounts weaken over time and when u shift the engine tilts farther then it should when it shifts from park to reverse or park to drive. Its also a good idea to check your transmission fluid level with the car running and pull out the dipstick. if the level is fine and ur ****** isnt slipping then its prolly not the ******.

Going from Park or reverse to Drive occasionally


The trans probablely wasn't the problem.
Sounds more like solenoids or shift linkage issues

1988 buick lesabre shifting gears problem


Hello;
You need to have the linkage adjusted. Over time, the linkage can go out of adjustment. If this is a column shift car the mechanical linkage may have shifted from hitting a bump or such. Hope this helps, let me know if I may be of further assistance.
Thanks;

I have a 1988 buick lesabre and when i go to shift in drive it says im in neutral and when im go to shift in reverse it says im in park?


Simple fix. The shift indicator cable attaches to the shift bowl at the bottom of the steering column. It just clips on the edge of it and can be slid around to adjust. You may have to pull the gear shift down to first gear to see it.
