Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

My 2000 Buick LeSabre whines and will not shift into any forward gears. It also has a very loud whining noise. Car starts fine and I am able to put the car in to reverse. Once I put the car in Drive it goes good for up to 20-mph and then it starts to whine and will not shift into any other forward gear. Same sound and problem when I put the car in position 1, 2, or 3. No problems in reverse. Transmission shop wanted to replace valve body first and then whole transmission, but I can not afford the 4K repair. thought it might be a solenoid or some kind of switch in the tranny.

It does sound like the transmission has packed it in. you might be able to find a decent used one via a wrecking yard and get a local mechanic to install it.
try to find one out of a car with under 100K miles on it.

You sure the whine is coming from the tank? If it ran quieter before, but now loud, not much you can do but replace it or drive it till it does something else-like stop working.

Ok what your describing is your Transmission not shifting between gears so low or no transmission oil means a slow car and at risk at damaging it so ckeck the oil level and if you have got full oil it it then you will need to take it to a mechanic.

1st, 3rd and 5th Gears all pop out of place + Whining noise


hi my name is nathan .......now...... what it sounds like is #1 (I have to hold it in place til I get to second gear) that can be that your shift linkage is worn or out of adjustment,pilot bushing is Badly worn,shift fork,lever and or shaft is bent or worn,or your bell housing is misaligned or just loose...i have a few more ideas on why it is jumping out but those are the main ones now about your whining gear noise#2( The whining sound starts low pitched in each gear then gets higher pitched as the rev's increase) you may have worn gears maybe or it could be just that your transmission lubricant is incorrect or inadequate.

The problem I posted earlier is on a 1996 Buick LeSabre.


two things it would be 1 your battery could be bad even if it is not
dead and will start your car it could have a bad cell
the other thing could be the belt is loose and not letting the alternator
spin fast to charge the battery so it slips on the belt but thats what the noise is the belt check the battery at autozone for free
and if thats not it its the belt
