Any help from you guys would be great. If it is the tranny anyone have one for a 95? Its a FW2 1995 only for a park avenue, olds 88 or bonneville. Anyone know what it would take to put a 1992 park ave tranny in it?
Love your username.
First off, we need some information. Can you put "95 (insert trim level here)" in your signature? We need to know what gear ratio you have to determine compatibilities, and we can pretty well do this if we know what you have. SE, SLE, SSE, SSEi.
The first thing I'd look at is the linkages in the center console (if equipped) and at the trans using a service manual.
Another helpful thing would be to know where you're located. We may have a scantool or factory service manuals nearby.
