after changing the 3 ignition coils, spark plugs and wires, the car has been running great ever since. The problem was that only one of the coils was burned out so the car essentially was running only under 4 cylinders at a load. the car would studder because it wasnt balanced. I am happy with the way the car was running but i must add that the total bill for the repair came out to about $600.

replaced two coils on my 91 Regal and the car is working fine, thanks to this forum. Many were convinced it was the transmission lock-out, even the local transmission specialist. Thanks again
#43 of 109 99' GS hard shift
Jun 29, 2007 (7:33 pm)
Recently my 99 GS has intermittant hard shift problems( up or down). Once every 3 or 4 days. Usually after shutting off and restart seems to shift just fine.
Is this a Speed Sensor Problem or something a lot worse?
#44 of 109 New Radiator HATE THE TRANSMISSION LINE
Jul 18, 2007 (6:10 pm)
Okay I replaced my radiator this weekend. 135k on the od was about time. Replaced it with a 1 1/4 in radiator. Radiator works great. Lower transmission line... Not so good. It leaks. I checked the threading on both and they both looked PERFECT. No angle threaded happened. Anyway it is leaking through the hole in the middle of the nut. I put in a temp fix and but teflon tape on the white junk. Works great for now until the heat destroy's it. I looked at the flare and it looks good had a friend also look at it and he saw no problems. I assume he knows he restore Falcon's . Should I purchase a new Tranny line. The upper seemed to mate good. Let me know appriciate the help as always.
#45 of 109 about transmission of my car.
Jul 22, 2007 (6:45 pm)
I bought a 2000 BUICK Regal LS on July 9th. The mileage is 86000. The price of BUICK is 3600$. My car runs smoothly. Last Friday, the battery of my car is used up, and I found that the stop light is always on. I drove my car to Firestone. The technician did an inspection of stoplight switch, and told me that the stoplight switch is worn out. Because they did not have a stoplight switch, they unfixed the stoplight. On Saturday, I found that transmission of my car has some problems. When my car is run at a low speed, and then speed up, these will an instantaneous tremble. Does the stoplight switch inspection cause this problem? I do not know how to deal with this. Would you please give me some advices? If the mechanical inspection is needed, would you please recommend a store for me? Thanks.
#46 of 109 Big problems with 95' Regal
Jul 23, 2007 (10:34 am)
I have a used 95' Regal that was running just fine until recently. I got an oil change a few weeks ago and had my transmission fluid topped off. I suspected that was related, but now am unsure.
Over the last couple of weeks the 95' Regal has starting jumping as it switches gears, more and more violently. As I was taking it to get looked at, it went out of gear completely into neutral while I was driving and I had to stop and start the car again to get it back into drive. When I got to the mechanic, they checked the fluid level and everything was full and fine as far as that was concerned - they recommended a transmission specialist.
Has anyone else had these problems? Any suggestions?

I am having the same problems. My '98 Buick has only 70,000 miles on it. I refuse to believe that American engineers are that stupid. I did however read in another forum that the studdering and hard ship ploblems are related to valve in the transmission that goes bad. I believe it is the PCV valve. It made sense to me because my transmission still shifts when it is supposed to. It just shifts hard. I have not had it checked out yet because I bought a new Toyota Camry and have driven the car very little. However, my wife needs a car to drive when she gets her license her in another month. But this forum has got me worried about a speed sensor and starter coils as well. One could flush a lot of money down the toilet trying to find out what this problem is. Let me know if you have any luck.

Occasional problems with this vehicle are failures of the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid (PCS) and the connections at the Transmission Pass-Thru Connector. Failure of the Transmission PCS is identified in TSB # 00-07-30-002B. Failure of the connections at the Transmission Pass-Thru Connector is identified in TSB # 02-07-30-022B. The cost to repair the Transmission PCS is estimated at $45.61 for parts and $273.00 for labor. The cost to repair the Transmission Pass-Thru Connector is estimated at $10.00 for parts and $65.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.
#49 of 109 1999 Regal 2nd to 3rd shift solenoid
Aug 25, 2007 (4:17 pm)
I was told there was an error code that said my 2nd to 3rd shift solenoid was bad. The transmission guy said I would have to rebuild my entire tranny cause this part is so hard to get to. Is that true? The problem sounds simular to the one above. My car doesn't up shift to 3rd or overdrive until I let the gas go completely. And when I press it again it shifts back down. Someone also mentioned throttle position sensor but the code didn't come up for that only my mass air flow and tranny solenoid showed up.
