SOURCE: transmission sometimes shifts hard into next gear.

Typiclly this is caused by a failing Pressure Control Solenoid. Now in some cases, since you are in the 1996 model year you may have a vacuum modulator that controls the shift firmness that can be replaced as it is externally mounted. I dont know how best to describe what it looks like, but look down on your transmission, on the front side facing the radiator and if you see a canister like device that has a vacuum line running to it, that is the vacuum modulator and you could start by replacing that and see if it helps.

If you do not have the vacuum modulator and have instead the electronically controlled version of your transmission then you will have a Pressure Control Solenoid and it, unfortunately, is located on the inside of the transmission and cannot be easily replaced without dropping the whole transmission.

The pressure control solenoid is a common issue with your transmission (4T65) and Im leaning more towards you have the electronically controlled version (4T65E).

SOURCE: Low Coolant light flashing on 1996 Buick Regal 3.8

The low coolant sensor should be located in the passenger side radiator tank, You need to take it out and clean the sludge off of it for it to work right. Or you can just unplug it and forget about it, the light will go out and it won't cause any problems.

The intake may be leaking coolant into the crankcase. This can cause the lifter to bleed down also.

92 Buick Regal idles too fast and sputters as if not getting gas. Changed fuel filter, didn't help.


Check the fuel pressure first, get the schematic for the pressure. I think it has to be between 37 and 45 psi. If the fuel pressure isn't in spec, then your fuel pump is to blame. If not then check fuel pressure regulator. Also, go to the library for a Chiltons or Haynes. Happy Hunting!

CAR NOT RUNNING GOOD


sounds like a bad alternator,...have that checked out as well as the ground on your battery and frame. And you shouldnt have gotten shocked by grabbing one of the wires goin to the spark plugs....that means your wires are bad, the insulation is cracked around them causing it to possibly short out causing it to missfire.....replace wires n spark plugs....might as well just give it a tune up.

1996 buick regal over heating


Hi,
This sounds normal to me..... Except "runs to hot when idling"

When you're driving about (airflow over rad) all seems fine, but when sat in traffic idling - the fans come on to cool. Is the problem that even with the fans running, temperature still goes up - and fans never turn off again?

Is this the problem?

If it is, then the coolant pump may be badly corroded, not driving efficiently, or the coolant needs flushing and replacing.
