The first thing you should do is check the transmission fluid levels. If you have your manual you can consult it to help you find the transmission dipstick since I do not know where it is on your car. If you do no have it, you should talk to a sales rep at your local car parts store.

I have a 1995 Buick Century 6 cyl. The transmission shifts smoothly and into 4th gear but when I get to about 55 mph it shifts back into 3rd gear by itself and won't go back into 4th gear. What is...


Fourth gear in your vehicle doesn't exist. What feels like a fourth gear is the torque converter locking up. The lockup lockup is controlled by a solenoid in the side pan of the transmission, and the solenoid is controlled by the ECM (electronic control module) in response to several pressure, temperature and speed sensors etc. To determine which component is the problem you'll need a professional transmission mechanic with the proper diagnostic equipment.

I have a 93 buick centry it will go into 1st 2nd and reverse but will not go into 3rd I had some problems with it shifting into 3rd but just went out


Unless you are knowledgeable in diagnosing internal transmission problems, it is impossible to help you over the internet. Take the vehicle to a knowledgeable transmission shop and be prepared to spend a good amount of money.

Goes into neutral and then shifts hard into 1st on slowdown


It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell

93 buick regal will not unlock when shifted into park


Your vehicle is designed to auto lock the doors when you reach about 15 mph. This is a one way deal. When you park the car, unlocking the doors becomes a manual process to insure the occupants safety at their destination.
