Having problems with your 1993 Buick LeSabre ?
My buick lost fluid from a busted transmision hose/line the repair shop replace bad hose but since then you have to let the car run for a couple of minutes before puting car in gear. once car is warmed up it runs like a champ. Is there a pump that could be bad?
Check the transmission oil level on the dip stick whilst the engine is running. If it is low top it up by adding extra via the dipstick tube. I assume the line that broke was one of the cooling hoses to the radiator coil within the main coolant radiator. If the car was run for some time before the fluid loss was noticed than excessive wear will have occured to the brake bands and clutches. These wear fragments may be clogging the filter impeding fluid flow and this in turn will make the transmission unresponsive. If you transmission fluid is brown (see dipstick) instead of 'healthy pink' then I would suggest a new filter and transmission fluid change.
Sounds like you have damaged the transmission clutch pack.
