91 regal transmission issues

Ive been having this problem for about 2 weeks now where if im going high speed for example highway driving and i let go of the gas it feels like the transmission will downshift and the car will start to slow down slowly. it has been slipping at low speed more lately aswell and i notice a buzzing comming from the transmission

    Have you been able to have your transmission serviced before it has terminal damage?

    If you did it your self was the valve body torqued correctly?

    We have taken a round turn on how we felt about changing trans fluid. we now do it around the 30k or 3 years.

    Hope this follow up tip helps.

Four wheel drive engages and kicks out, light comes on and stays on and then kicks out the transfer case shifter

I would suspect you have a bad wheel speed sensor or a speed sensor defective... do you have an ABS/CheckEngine/4 wheel drive light on somewhere on the vehicle display... That might help fix the problem.

It sounds like it is kicking out of overdrive. Many code scanners sold by auto parts retailers will not read manufacture transmission codes. I had this issue with my Ford Contour. The o/d light would flash but I couldn't get any codes from it with an Actron scanner, which is similar to what you find in parts stores. I used a tuning device (SCT Xcal) loaded with Ford software and that pulled the codes for me. If you are getting a VSS code, that is a good place to start. The computer uses this sensor to know how fast you are going so it can select the proper gear. If it doesn't know how fast you are going, it tries to guess based on your RPM. It wouldn't surprise me if it got stuck in first gear. The exact VSS code you get would help but I think you are going to need to replace that sensor.

You name it ive done it!!!! I have a 99 regal with the 3800 series 2 and it is running rough either at idle oe driving and every once in awhile it will just die but starts right back !!! any ideas?

I have a 1988 Buick Century and was having trouble diagnosing a similar issue. $70 and an idle air motor (really looks more like a solenoid-driven valve) solved 60% of the problem...still working on the lagging on the high end, but driving it every day. Good luck!

Your going to have to get the car scanned for the DTC code. The Check engine light indicates that the ECM has detected an issue with the cars engine or transmission performance. Your hard shifting could be the failure to the Pressure control solenoid (PCS), that would be a DTC code P1811. The PCS is located under the trans axle side cover assembly. IF you go to Auto Zone, they can scan your car free of charge and can give you the step by step instruction to replacing the part that may have failed. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

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.

An air ambient temp sensor wouldn't have that kind of effect on the engine. I would lean more towards the CTS. Also I would check the vaccum line running into the MAP sensor as well. The mileage doesn't indicate a converter issue.
