Having problems with your 1992 Buick Roadmaster ?

Does the 1992 buick roadmaster have a vacuum modulator to shift the transmission gears?

\015 I'm talking about my sons car and he said it is shifting later or at a higher speed. I've replaced these and or the vacuum hoses before on other models. I suppose low on fluid condition could cause this also. I hope he has already checked this. He lives out of state and I can only advise him. Thank you for any idea you can share. He loves this car that will very soon be turning 300,000 miles.\015

The vacuum modulator line on my 1988 Chevy Suburban Diesel has come off at the engine end. I have followed it to the passenger side of the transmission. It is connected there. Where is the other end supposed to go? My transmission is not shifting into gear. Could having the vacuum hose off be causing this problem?

I was stopped at a traffic light. When I went to step on the gas my transmission slipped out of gear. I tried to shift it into all of the other gears but it still would not move. I tried to use the four wheel drive both high and low but still no response. I then purchased some dextron III and added it to the fluid but no response. There is not any fluid on the ground either. the fluid looked very clean when I checked it. Would a vacuum or computer module cause this problem? Does it have either?

Transmission shifts into 1st gear as it should but when its time to shift into 2nd gear I have to push the RPM up to 4 (Speed up to 30) then lay off the gas & then it will shift into the 2nd gear & so on. All vacuums are secured on. No liquids leaking. Transmission fluid & filter has been changed 1 day ago. The transmission is not slipping or jerking it just takes a longer time to change, is there a sensor that controls the valves to open up.


Possiblity there could be a sensor, or you could have a valve sticking or going bad inside the transmission. good luck ... 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe

1994 Buick Skylark, 138,000 mi.,V-6, auto trans. Car won't engage in gear until engine is warm. Engine must run 4-8 minutes until shifting successfully. Shift lever can be moved to all gears, but transmission doesn't actually engage until engine is warm. Once transmission engages there are no problems driving.

I have a 1994 roadmaster, got the trans rebuilt and still won't shift properly. Hard shifts from whatever gear it takes off in to the next gear when first started, afterwards shifts easier, however it never gets into first gear and starts off in 2nd or 3rd gear. Trans man said he's check 4 times and pulls a code 84 from the computer. He says the computer needs to be reflashed, buick dealer says the code (84) is a 2-3 shift solenoid circuit fault. At any rate it doesn't work well and is eating lo

3.8L Ford Windstar with automatic transmission. When first started, the transmission will go into gear, forward or reverse, and I can drive for a time.

I have a 93 Nissan Altima (AT transmission) and while driving my car....sometimes the speed ometer stays on "0" and the RPM goes up while I have my foot on the gas and it sounds like it is stuck in first gear. Then after a minute or so it will shift over and the speed ometer will go to normal and you can hear the gear switch over & the car will also **** a little while it goes into the next gear. Does this sound like it needs a new transmission?
