Question about 1995 Cadillac DeVille
We own a 1995 Cadillac Deville Concours. One day recently when my husband was leaving to go to work, he got into his Cadillac, started the engine, put it into drive, and nothing. He then put the car into reverse to see if it could go in reverse, and it did. Our apartment complex maintenance man happened by and helped him push it back into the carport. He also let him know how to go about shifting the car manually. My husband tried shifting the car manually, and was able to get to work, and that's the way it was driven to get to the transmission shop. We have had, what we thought to be a reputable transmission shop look at it for us. After they had a chance to look at it, they called to say they were certain it was the shift solenoids were bad and needed to be replaced (to the tune of $836.19). They said that after the shift solenoids were replaced, then they could test drive the car to make sure that took care of the problem. They called us the next day to say the car was done, that it was the shift solenoids, and that everything else looked good, and we were lucky. The next day my husband gets into the car to go to work, starts it up, puts it into drive, and nothing, until he gives it alot of gas, then it lurches forward and goes on down the road fine. When he got off work that day, it did the same thing as in the morning. We contacted the transmission shop to let them know they didn't fix the problem, and that they needed to make the repaires for what we gave them. The car was taken back to the transmission shop, they said they looked at it, and couldn't figure out what was wrong. Their solution was to take apart the entire transmission, and of course to charge us to do so. We took back possession of our car. Does anyone out there have any insight or suggestions as to what might be wrong???? I would greatly appreciate any help in this matter!!!!
