There was recently a thread in here about someone's Buick transmission
"going into neutral" at stoplights, but most of the thread has been
My work car suddenly began doing the same thing yesterday ('92 Buick
Century 3.3 automatic overdrive, 162,000 miles; don't know if trans has
ever been replaced or not).
It performs _flawlessly_
in town and cruising down the highway. But
after coasting up to an intersection and stopping, the transmission acts
like I'd bumped it up into neutral. I can put it down into low and it
will engage right away, and then I just put it back up into overdrive
and it's ok again.
Problem started very suddenly and it has done this about 5 times in
the last 2 days. Fluid level is right on full now and appears
I think I recall someone posting that they had to run theirs 1 quart
over full -- or was it an inch over full? There may have been several
posters stating the same thing with regard to this.
I'd really appreciate it if someone with experience with this problem
wouldn't mind posting again, as to what they did to solve the problem
and possibly to explain what exactly is going on inside to cause this in
an otherwise seemingly healthy transmission.
Thanks very much in advance..
