    '95 STS Stuck in 3rd Gear

    I am looking at buying a '95 STS with 130K on the clock. It is a decent car with the exception of the trans which I am told is "stuck" in third gear. I have not seen or driven it yet, so I have no other info. Is this a common failure mode? I am hoping, of course, that it is a solenoid problem. Any ideas?

    TwoHundred.....Probably shift solenoids......they come in a replacement kit, 1-2 and 2-3 with new plastic filter and retainer brackets. Long afternoon.....
    Lots of info and pics on pans and solenoids in Seville, Deville, and Northstar Performance over the last 3 months. Start snooping past threads and pages.

    Maybe, just maybe, it's a transmission shift cable or lever (mechanical) also......
