Removal of this seal is tricky.First let me say that if the filter will fit in it snug you are better off not changing it.If you nick or scratch the bore when removing this seal it is possible to cause a leak that can **** air and this is bad in so many ways.I have removed thousands of these type seals in the past 25 years and i have a very refined technique.You need a 24 oz hammer and a large standard screwdriver or flat tipped prybar.Do exactly what I say.the seal is shapped like a top hat.The lip that stops it from going in the case all the way is the brim.Place the tip of screwdriver on the lower side of the brim at a 45 degree angle.Do not get on the outside of the seal.Hit the screwdrive sharply so as to colapse the seal.Strike once the reposition and strike again.Never get outside the seal.Once you have colapsed the seal go to the other side and use the part you have driven in to pry the seal out.Dont get underneathe the sael.Always work on the seal and not the bore.Good luck!

Transmission fluid


When I changed the transmission oil on my 88 Buick lesabre limited I took 6 qts of Dextron VI, and it is also wise to change the transmission filter. U can purchase the transmission filter kit from any auto parts store, not neccessarily the dealer. This is the best change for the vehicle.

1997 buick lesabre 130,000 miles auto. goes into drive fine and rev. but when driving it it wont shift the moter races and wont shift like it stayes only in 1st


Check the transmission fluid and see if it's low on fluid. If it is more than one pint low it could cause slippage, With that many miles if you have not done a transmission oil and filter change then you will need to do this first when they pull the pan they can tell if you need to overhaul the transmission. Hope this helps you. The cost for a transmission oil and filter change ranges from $150.00 to $200.00.

Sometimes the transmission on my 2001 LeSabre 3.8 V-6 shifts hard but not always tranny has been serviced with new filter and fluid


Have someone check for any transmission codes these don't always turn on your check engine light,If no codes and your speed sensors are reading ok it sounds like you may have a accumaltor piston seal may be leaking.
