First check the fluid, then the shifter connections at the trans, otherwise you will have to pull the pan to check interior linkage, but it should be under warrantee

Transmission has to be manually shifted. Downshifts on its own, and i can take off in 1st but only at very slow speed. 2nd and 3rd gear seem fine other than manually shifting.

u need a scan using factory or vehicle specific gear--values of components will be diplayd so an xperiencd tech can decyfr--littl code readers dont du it---w age of car certain sensors etc need replacin-believe that trans is electric controled--dont rplace any parts til uve isolated issue----------also go to magicmechanic online and checout the napa library on that model

1983 oldsmobile cutlass supreme wont start

I had some issues when I changed my olds 307 to a slightly modified olds 350 rocket, it would start fine cold, but hard cranking or slow, painful cranking when hot. Alot of it was the carbureator was allowing too much or too little fuel into the engine. I rebuilt the carb twice. The first time I didn't have a full understanding of float level drop and measuring as far as bending the brass tangs. The second rebuild I finally was able to remove a large part of the hot starting issue, along with retarding the timing as well. But it still isn't gone.

My 1993 olds cutlass will not shift back into drive after it shifts into overdrive.When i come to a stop i have to put in netural and then back to drive. It tends to be worse in the winter then in the...

I would try to have the transmission flushed and filled if not done within the last 30,000 mi. If this doesn't improve the condition for about $100 or so, then I would have it rebuilt or replaced.

My 1996 0lds cutlass has been parked for 1 year and now it is smoking it was fine b-4 I parked it. any ideas

probably needs a good workout to lubricate all the seals it around the block a couple times and slowly work it back up to highway speeds...seals and gaskets can dry out and contract over time if not lubricated or pressurized by a running engine. next time you have to park your car for an extended period have somebody start the engine once every couple of weeks and run it for 10-20 mins.
