Question about 1993 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Car 'slips' out of gear

My LeSabre has developed a new trick. It seems to slip out of gear when it's driven 50-100 yards. It's like someone has shifted it into neutral, even though it's clearly engaged in drive. Then you turn it off for a short time, start again, and you can drive it another 100 yards or so. It's like it's out of transmission fluid, but there's plenty on the dipstick.

Try changing the fluid checking all wiring are you getting any jerking or poping noises? batt levels ok? things of that nature also try reseting the computer, (un hook batt. for a few mins) take it down and see if there are any error codes

My 2000 Grand Cherokee LAREDO, V6, automatic doesn't catch when you put it in R to reverse. It basically 'jump' into REVERSE gear either after a few seconds, or sometimes as much as 60...


There could be a few things wrong. The reverse slip could be a worn sevro. the slipping on shifhting gears could be seals in the solenoid package. Try some transmission additive, this will recondition the seals. this could take care of both problems. Tranx, Lucas make good additives. There are other things in the transmission that could cause this, but for $10.00 it's worth a shot. I used it my truck for slipping three years ago and still no problems.

Putting car into reverse after having driven short


You need a new Pressure Control Solenoid Body. 9L2Z7G391A -solenoid pack for a 5R55S Trans. $332.20. at Trans Parts supplier. Don't even call a Lincoln Dealer for a price. They wouldn't even deal with me because I have a sales tax ID, and ask too many question. They will screw you over big time. That's a common problem in a long list of LS issues, my wife has one also and I used to have a Trans Repair Shop. It will slam into Reverse cold, Slip or flair on 3 to 4 Shift. Also expect the EGR Valve to go bad and make the trans issue even harder to troubleshoot, untill it works correctly. Drop the tran pan, remove about 7 screws and change the solenoid body. Best bet, go to a trans shop, never a dealer. Also get the old fluid out of there and put Mecon V in ,with a bottle of Red Lubgard Additive.

Transmission slipping--disconnected and reconnected sylinoid and woks again but for how long??


theres a good chance that,if the tranny wasnt serviced often enough the filter and the fluid wasnt any good. so possibly with the new parts and new filter and fluid,it should extend the life alot
