Question about 1995 Buick Regal

Open Question

Difficult to get into gear. When I can finally back out of my driveway, if I come to a complete stop it may not go foreward again for a while. My engine revs when I accelerate but it takes a while for it to get moving. Seems to get better the more I drive it.

SOURCE: car wont move

This may be a transmission problem.  Did you check the fluid?  Is the level right?  Is it dirty...not red/pink?  If both of those are okay...does it change the engine speed at all when you shift into drive?  If any of these things are not right, you must get them right.  First thing...have the fluid and filter changed and the unit inspected.

This is caused by Worn out Clutches inside the Automatic Transmission. You will need a Rebuild on the Tranny. This will stop these Problems.

Since it is sitting , Let's try this. In the intake ducting , in one of the metal sections or in tthe air dilter box there is what is called a maf sensor. This sensor messes up numerous performanceaspects. It can be spotted by the wires cominiiiig out of the tube.This sensor measures the density and velocity of the aur entering the engine and communicates with rge computer to provide the right amount of fuel for correct air to fuel ratio for proper combustion. This sensor can be cleaned with CRC electrical spray cleaner.. Do Not rub or brush the sensor or use compressed air to dry it or it can be damaged. clean both sides with the spray only.Good Luck. Now, your trans may correct itselfonce the sensor has the engine running right. Make sure your air filter is clean and there is no loose dirt in the intake ducting.Check you trans fluid level Again, I hope this helps you..

SOURCE: Especially when cold my automatic doesnt want to

My 1996 Buick does this also. You need to let your engine warm up in the cold before driving it. What happens is the tranny fluid gets real thick and can not circulate very well. If you want to avoid warming up the car, get a block heater for it. A filter and fluid change is probably not a bad idea either. If this doesn't help, it may be time for a new tranny.

What would make my 1985 30hp Johnson hard to get in gear?

could be a cable adjustment. adjust it so it travels a little farther into foreward gear. if that doesnt cure it then its probably the foreward gear its self that needs to be replaced.

94 explorer a4ld intermittant 2-3 shift

Are you sure your fluid level is correct? When they don't shift until warmed up,that is usually dirt or low fluid.
I would get a coupla cans of SEA-FOAM trans. treatment,NOT the motor treatment. Follow directions and sit in the car shifting it thru all gears many times. Take it out on freeway and kick it down to make it shift down and let up suddenly to make it upshift. Do this several times.
If it starts working for you,do a filter/fluid change really soon. I have saved them this way,but it's about 50/50 that you'll need a PROPER rebuild or replacement.There is dirt in there somewhere or the pump is giving up on you. don-ohio

Quadzilla starter motor turning but not engine

The starter has two parts. the large part of the starter is a motor that turns the gear that engages the flywheel. the smaller part of the starter is a solenoid that pushes the gear foreward to align the starter gear to the flywheel. Sounds to me that either the starter shaft or gear have become stripped, or the sterter solenoid is not pushing the starter gear foreward. Most likely the solenoid failed.

Car stops moving in reverse gear

Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
