Have you checked the transmission fluid? If it is full, does it have a burnt smell to it? If it does, change the transmission fluid and filter. If not, check all vacuum lines going to the transmission back to their source. If none of these is the case, I would check with a good transmission shop.

Why is my transmission struggling to maintain gear at 35 mph?


I would take it to 2 or 3 or more different shops and ask for an estimate to fix it.. they will probably know what causes this condition. and probably will not charge you anything.. if they want to charge you for an estimate go somewhere else. you really do not want to trust them.. When you get several estimates and several of them tell you the same thing then its a matter of who do you trust??.. Check the shops out on Yelp.. actually sounds like it could be something simple like throttle presure adjustment.. But i cannot see your car from here.

No AWD until 2002

The V8 had a 4R70W
The V6 had a 5R55E

4 & 5 speeds --No 3 Spd

Think your Transmission is due fro a rebuild

My gears are P- park R- reverse D- drive (2 Drives one with a box or circle around it) what is each D for


  • D with no circle is just "Drive." this a lower geared drive and best used around time as it provides a better pick up and over all response.
  • OD is "Over Drive" and used for cruising speeds ove 50+ MPH down the highway. Over Drive allows the vehicle to cruise at a more sustained speed with less engine speed and provides better fuel consumption.
  • While you are in Drive going down the highway and your speed reaches 50 MPH just switch gears into Over Drive and you will notice your car "relax" a bit. Remember you don't want to switch from Over Drive to Drive until you get down to around 45MPH or it can be a little rough on your engine and transmission.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

Shifts rough in 1st gear and lose overdrive at times


on the older style blazers the fan clutches did fail and would often be misdiagnosed as shifting problems as the clutch engaged and disengaged.... also a hard 1-2 shift can be due to your vehicle storing a transmission fault code in the ecm... some transmission fault codes will put the transmission into a fail safe or limp mode in which it engages high line pressure .... this can cause your hard 1-2 shift and will feel normal most of the time other than that. high mileage on the transmission fluid may also require it to be flushed and have the filter kit replaced

1994 Buick Regal "shudders" while driving/ won't always up-shift


It is a 24 year old vehicle (made in 94), it probably needs to retire :>)

Take it to a transmission specialist rather than a normal garage, as it sounds like a sensor problem. It may also be rubber mountings that have perished, and the engine and transmission are only partially mounted to the chassis.
