Hi, I'm hoping someone here can help me with this, I have a 1988 buick
reatta The darn thing is driving me nuts,
heres what it does :
When the shifter is in drive and you are accelerating slowly the trans
shifts very slowly you can hear the motor whine up and the eventually
it will engage the next gear,
When you stomp on it and really get going it will shift positivly,
also when the car needs to down shift and you don't hammer it, the
trans shakes the whole car trying to shift, press the accelerator a
little more and then it will shift?
The way I seem to be able to get around this is to manually shift the
trans, if I do this everything is fine, down shifts are fine up are
I have been told its a vaccuum problem , but I can't find a bad line?
I would really appreciate any help anyone could give,
thanks in advance
