5 Answers

You mean the selector will not move because of a safety interlock not releasing? a sensor on the brake pedal has to be satisfied that the brake is being pressed before it will let you move the controls...if you're putting it into gear and it won't go, that's gonna be an hydraulic problem...check the level to make sure there's enough fluid in there with the vehicle running in park...be sure to set the parking brake.~

I have a 2000 Buick regal. Yesterday it was making a kinda suction sound when I pressed on the accelerator. I took into qui k lube and they checked the fluid level..was fine. I pressed on accelerator and it would not go into 3 re gear..or what it sound like a And felt from me? I'm praying its the modulator and not the whole transmission. Don't know what to do? I just moved to Michigan and have no mechanic ..afraid to drive it 270 miles back to my mechanic..any suggestions???
