    Buick Park Ave; replaced TCC solenoid...

    1998 Buick Park Avenue Ultra
    302,000 kms


    The car was shifting into gear but not driving forward about 3 weeks ago. A garage we took it to replaced the tranny fluid (since it was due) and the torque converter clutch solenoid to fix the problem.

    After replacement, the shifting was 10x better then it felt before and it fixed the problem where the car was not driving forward while in gear. However, the weather here in Winnipeg reached -20 degrees C (-4 Fahrenheit) today. Today was the first day where the car has this problem again. When I put it into reverse or drive, it will no longer drive forward or backwards.

    I asked on another forum called bobistheoilguy.com but was hoping to get a few more opinions before going forward.

    I'm guessing, your looking at a tranny rebuild

    sounds like bad seals in the tranny and it can't make enough line pressure to engage gear, I had such an issue with a THM-400 in a Chevy pickup... I just let it idle for 10 - 15 minutes and it would warm up enough to be drivable. Ended up parking it in a field and leaving it there.

    A new TCC to fix a a trans that would not move forward? You had bigger issues than a TCC.

    Seriously, when last I dealt with them they understood how to make something work as inexpensively as possible. And honestly, what more could you want from a tranny shop.
