Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette
I had a problem like that with an olds cutlass i owned. It turned out to be the TCC (it is a solenoid which locks the torq converter to give you "fourth gear") Fortunately, the solution was simple: just unplug it. I don't know about your olds, but on mine it was a plastic plug that went into the top of the transmission. You just pull the plug, and it is fixed. The plug will have a tab or some other safety device which prevents you from accidentially pulling it. It will be easy to figure out, though. If that doesen't fix the problem, plug it back in.
The only drawback is that you will no longer have overdrive, thus lessining your gas milage.
or, you could pay thousands to have the tranny removed and rebuilt.
