Well here is the news on my 2000 Buick Regal with 28,000 miles. They had to rebuild it. The mechanic said he could not believe how bad it was (no gears at all). Before he realized what awful shape it was in, he gave us an estimate that on the high end was 1700. When he realized all the work he had to do, he said it really should be 2000. but since he quoted 1700. that is what he charged. There is only a 6 month warranty on the work, I figured most places gave 12? Tony, I am sure you were raked over the coals as you were an out of towner. That is horrible. Did you get a warranty with your work? I wonder how long rebuilt transmissions last. Good Luck with your cars.

#36 of 109 98 Regal LS w/ slipping
Mar 25, 2007 (8:34 pm)
Im at about 128k or so and my transmission is misbehaving. 3rd gear between 50-60mph gets some slipping at low throttle input ... it happens every time unless i give it some gas and it stays in 2ndgear.
Lately some more problems cropped up. Driving home in rushhour about 30miles stop-and-go traffic... the transmission was giving some ugly shuddering/slipping once at around 15mph and again somewhere around 20mph or so.
One more symptom, when coasting in stop&go traffic I'll start to brake and take the car down slowly to a stop ... right before it comes to a complete stop it will start shuddering again but will stop when the car is not in motion. Once i try to pickup again it will give some hesitation slippage but then go back to normal.
the 50-60mph slipping has been there for maybe a year now [over the period of 5~6k miles, i dont drive a whole lot]. When i asked the mechanics at GM they said for me to not change the transmission fluid, seeing how its current distressed state is somehow keeping everythign in equilibrium and if i were to get it changed it would open a can of worms. I've been able to confirm this judgement, but I would like to know if there is any prognosis that can be given as to how much life i have left in this transmission? at 128k ... i THINK the transfluid might have been changed at 100k [dad had it before me and I cant really vouch for him being mechanically minded and observant]. What i can tell you that at 70k this car had a transmission swap. So with 58k on the dial for this 2nd transmission ... any takers as to what kind of life expectancy im looking at?
Thanks in advance for all responses.
#37 of 109 Transmission problems??
Apr 03, 2007 (10:16 am)
I have a 91 buick regal with the 3800 v6, lately when i start slowing down to stop at a stop sign the transmission acts like it has shifted into neutral cuz once i try to get going it will just rev up then it will shudder and go into gear and go normally, the motor doesn't stop running anyttime during this. Lately it has been taking more to get it going again, sometimes i have to shift into neutral then back to drive to get it to go when trying to leave a stop sign, the tranny fluid is up to the full mark and everything else seems alright, do i have a tranny issue or brake issue or possible injectors???? anything would be appreciated!

I read with interest your transmission studdering problem. I have the same problem with a 91 Regal, 265,000 kilometers. The transmission guy tells me its the overdrive lockup and the tune up guy tells me it's an ignition problem. How did you make out changing the coil packs?
#39 of 109 4T60-E Vacuum Modulator Location
May 16, 2007 (8:43 pm)
I have a 97 Regal GS with a factory rebuilt 4T60-E & I can't find the vacuum modulator. I saw on previous posts that one person said it was on the front right side (driver side) of the transmission when facing the car. Well, I can't find it or a vacuum line.
Maybe the rebuilt 4T60-E don't have a vacuum modulator?
I went to Mitchell's & the exploded view didn't even show the vacuum modulator, but did mention part 47 which was not on the view.
HELP, transmission shifting hard and not shifting right.
