Obviously first check fluid level to be sure it is properly filled. Its an old vehicle and a slow leak could cause low fluid level. Thats what id check first.

If you cycle thru the gears.... 1st then 2nd then 3rd then drive, does it go into drive? If not, you could have a real problem.

Speedo stops, stays in first gear


Sounds like something internal in the trans. It will be an electrical issue, not mechanical. Only way to tell is to hook it to a machine.

I have a 1991 Buick Park Ave, my car will start but when I put in drive, reverse or neutral I can feel the transmission shift but it will not take off. Several times I put the car in neutral, rocked it...


I would first check to see if you have the proper transmission level of fluid. From your discription, it seems that the fluid is low. If it is full, you have some more major issues. Hope this helps you, Rick

I have a 89 buick park avenue ultra. my


the transmission breaking apart but in a really slow way. There's not a thing that can be done to save it. It's going to someday give out. You can prolong it by not punching on the pedal to test it. just drive it normally and DON"T get the trans oil change. Just leave it alone... I own 89 P/Ave 156,000 original owner. Same thing happened to my car and picked up a used trans at junk yard and my mechanic installed it and runs like a baby at half the price(700.00). If you go to junk yards half of the park ave are because of trans. Good luck
