1997 Buick Park Avenue Q&A

1997 Buick Park Avenue Question: transmission shifts hard

Tranny shifts fine all gears cold but shifts as though going over car counter cables when hot. bang, bang, bang -
Answer 1
First thing is to make sure the trans fluid is at the full mark -
Answer 2
I'm told this is probably a solenoid of some kind - if outside the trans casing, reasonable to replace but if inside the transmission, no shop will open and replace, they want to put in a rebuilt transmissioin for about $3500-$4000. With 185000 miles on mine (and i love it!) guess i'll wait for the next Lucerne and see. CarefulDriverJim -
