1998 Buick Riviera Question: Shifter won't move



, Menomonee Falls, WI, May 21, 2010, 20:53

In the winter time, it is difficult to get the push button on the shifter to go down, to put the car into drive, reverse, etc. Sometimes it can take a half hour or so of pushing the button before it will finally go into gear. Anybody else have/had this problem?

    Yes! I also have a 98 Riv, same issue when it's cold. Annoying as all hell.
