Could be a few different things. First of all, have you pulled codes from the PCM yet? What does your tranny fluid look/smell like?

Does it shake going up a hill, or all the time when your driving and accelerate into 3rd? Has the car died on you yet while you were driving?

45mph and TC lockup come to mind. A scan tool will be able to tell you if you're having tranny problems.

I had a similiar issue on my 93 and 99 (not quite as severe) and also on a 92 Cutlass. The Cutlass was really severe (similar to what he'* describing).

All I did to clear it up was change out the fuel filter on the Cutlass. On my Bonnevilles I changed out the fuel filter, replaced wires, and installed Delco platinum plugs. No issues since and I've got consistant power throughout the RPM range on both cars. The cars were choking for gas from the clogged fuel filter.

Try the cheap fix of the fuel filter first.

I agree with the fuel filter idea. My mechanic reccomends changing it every 6 months on the 3800. Also, running that sea foam additive in the fuel every 6 or 7 tanks of gas. Keeps her running clean and no fuel restrictions.

It also has a gringing noise when i am at 55mph on the drivers side. Also a hell of a jerk tryin to get into 3rd gear so i will change the wire now and the fuel filter and the spark plugs and we will see what happeneds. Man I love the car jus need to it act right for now I hope this is the problem cause recently the pump went out so i had to drop the tank and change the pump and the screen for it i had metal shavings in it. That was weird. Anywho I have been takin to long to change the plugs and the wires i jus need to get my lazy butt up 2 do it. I was also wondering on if the sterring wheel is turned to the left a lil bit and a lil bit of slack in it its more then likely the tie rod ends that need to be changed?


I LOVE DA BONNE WHY WONT IT LOVE ME BACK :( :( :(

If the slop is just on one side or the other, it'* a good indication of tie-rod ends.
