My '95 Riviera S/C trans. doesn't always lock-up the converter.

Asked by Feb 12, 2012 at 05:12 PM about the 1995 Buick Riviera Supercharged Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Riviera, 89Kmiles, torque converter doesn't always lock up when driving on the hiway, or, it will drop out at times. Also, the traction control shuts off after about two blocks. I do manually shut it off now before driving so it doesn't affect the cruise control when the lock-up works. Anybody have any ideas about what to check? I don't have a shop manual yet (waiting for the swapmeets to start around here). Thanks-Jim
