Yes, it can be expensive. You can change the filter and fluid and hope for the best, if you haven't already. Next is to get a transmission installed at a salvage yard, get a reconditioned transmission thru a parts store or get a local re-builder with a guarantee.

The serpentine belt on 1996 Deville broke. Attempted to pull car 1 mile home but it would not move. Can anyone tell me why and how to get it to move?

It should move freely with the transmission in neutral and parking brake released. The parking brake may be stuck engaged - it should release if you put the transmission in drive first (manually check that the parking brake pedal has released).

1995 Cadillac Deville starter will turn but not engage the flywheel but the starter tested good

Could be a tooth broken off the flywheel itself, try pushing the car just a bit & try again if it engages then its a tooth gone.

If the fluid level is ok then you need the transmission repaired/rebuilt.

What's your problem?my 2002 cadillac deville pulls back while driving and the dash board lights up with stability system engaged

You have Malfunction Indicator Lamp lite on your dash,
I assume for some time & ask if you have checked for the
ABS Braking System Codes,since the Stability Light is on

I will assume you have no owners manual & haven't given
much thought to going to a repair shop within a couple of days
of any vehicle issue

Need the codes,then have a shop diagnose that systems problems

Could be a Wheel Speed Sensor,or not
