1999 Buick Regal Q&A

1999 Buick Regal Question: My car takes about two to four minutes before you can shifts out of park

Sometimes it shifts out of park right away. -
Answer 1
Start by having a transmission flush done with a new filter, then use Dexron VI to fill. If the problem persists, have a professional transmission shop scan the transmission for codes and perform a pressure test. Is the problem that the shifter doesn't move, or the shifter goes into drive but you have to wait for it to start moving? -
Answer 2
Have a mechanic check the shifter interlock! Possibly just contaminated and needs cleaning. -
