Chance to buy 2002 Regal LS
I took a 2002 Buick Regal LS in on trade today that appears to have transmission issues. Fluid is nice and pink, doesn't smell bad and doesn't appear to be burnt in any way. After researching for many hours online, it seems to be only a few possibilities.
1. Catalytic converter
2. Motor mounts
3. Torque converter clutch solenoid
4. 2-3 shift solenoid
5. transmission valve body
6. Pressure control solenoid
Any of these can cause the symptoms, which are a hesitation to shift, loss of power and a general sense of "boggyness" (very technical term). Car has 89,900 miles and is just gorgeous. Shifting issue is the only downside to this car.
I can pick it up for $1500. Seriously thinking of buying it to fix and resell. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
