Sorry if this post has already brought up, need help and new to this forrum. and help would be great. The car has around 198000 on it and still strong motor. I have heard this could be a sensor on the tranny, anyone heard of this.

It would be much more helpful if that member would post any fix right here in the Forums. Sharing it privately by email deprives others of the information.

#92 of 109 98 Regal LS transmission issues
Nov 01, 2010 (11:59 am)
So I have a 98 Regal LS and I recently have had some transmission issues. I was driving it the other day on the highway and when I stopped at a stoplight and tried to drive again it was like the tranny was missing and jumping real bad. checked the fluid and it was fine turned the car off tried driving it again and everything seemed fine. Any ideas what could cause this problem. Is there something like a shift sensor that could cause this to happen? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Answering myself. I had a tune up done, primarily new wires and plugs, fuel filter as well. What I thought was a transmission miss in Overdrive, up hill, low rpm was actually the engine missing under these conditions. Down shifting, lower gear bringing up the RPMs would alway bypass the problem. So my answer was new plugs and wires. Enging miss, not transmission. Good luck everyone.

92 regal 3.8 engine 140,000. Trans wants to shift up in gear when under strain (uphill). starts to shake until I reapply gas and it shifts to lower gear and runs until nex hill. Buick recomended not to have engine flush since I don't have history.Mine since one year ago. Put in 12 oz. of Lucas trans conditioner ran 10 mil. .. a tinny bit better. any recomenditions??

Did you remember to remove 12 oz. of transmission fluid before adding the 12 oz of Lucas conditioner? You don't want to over fill the transmission. I know that is not likely your original problem but the Lucas may give better results if the fluid level in the transmission is correct..
