Question about Buick Regal

1 Answer

After having the transmission fluid and filter changed on a Regal GS supercharged, the transmission seems to sometimes slip when starting from a stop. I step on the gas to go and after a half second or so it engages, almost feels like the tires are spinning but I am not giving it that much gas. Could there be a connection between changing fluid and this problem? What do you think the problem is? Is it likely (and how soon) that the transmission will completely break down? Thank you, Mark

Who changed the fliud? Maybe the wrong fluid was added. Also some transmissions have bands that can be adjusted. Just be easy on it. You don't wont to burn it out.

Transmission slipping in 95 blazer


You could try a transm. drain and refill and replace the fluid filter while doing so. When you drop the transmission pan (after draining), check for how much metal shavings are in the pan. There should be a magnet on the pan to collect shavings. If it doesn't look like too much, you could proceed with the filter change, then replace gasket for pan and put pan back on, and refill transm. and try it. Sometimes a fluid and filter helps, sometimes not if damage is too severe.

98 crown vic transmission slipping


Change the filter and fluid. This car if the transmission is original should have a torque converter drain. Drain the torque converter also,it gets almost all the fluid out of the transmission. Doing this the car will require almost 12 quarts of fluid. Worth a shot. I change mine at 25000 mile intervals.

Transmission slips after engine warms up


It isn't when the engine gets hot, it is when the transmission fluid gets hot that the slipping starts, due to wear of the clutches and gears inside the transmission.
First, check the fluid level to make sure it is full. If it is low, bring fluid level to full and see if that helps.
About all the owner can do with slipping automatics is trying a transmission fluid and filter change to see if transmission revives and stops slipping. The bottom pan is removed, fluid (about 6-8 quarts) is drained, and a new filter is installed before the pan is replaced with a new gasket, sealed up, and fresh fluid added. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes the transmission is worn too bad to help, and you are left with looking for a replacement transmission.
Check the fluid level first. Good luck.
