Sweet!

@  dezldave961 : (07 May 2020 - 04:14 PM)

Got bored and started making build video...

@  dezldave961 : (04 May 2020 - 04:05 AM)

I need to hunt down the little black trim bar that's at the top edge of the GS rocker panel cover, for driver's side between rear door and wheel well.

@  ejguillot : (03 May 2020 - 02:42 AM)

I've been on there too. I hope this forum is kept open, there's too much info to allow it to be lost!

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2020 - 10:25 PM)

I've been monitoring GrandPrixForums and 3800Pro (don't have FB)... also hopped on TurboBuick, but 99% GN chatter from boomers

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Everyone at home, plenty of free time.

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@  tpivette : (25 February 2020 - 02:35 AM)

@  monte0 : (17 February 2020 - 05:04 AM)

@  ejguillot : (14 January 2020 - 10:36 PM)

Hope the new year is treating everyone well..

@  ejguillot : (16 December 2019 - 01:55 AM)

Hi all. Decade is coming to a close... I'm feeling a little old!

@  M_Dogg : (05 December 2019 - 11:20 PM)

Cheers!

@  ejguillot : (02 December 2019 - 01:13 AM)

Hi there. Some of us are working to keep these cars alive and running. Glad you had a good 15 year run.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:39 AM)

Every time I see an Old Buick I have major respect for it. I know what kind of torque these cars make.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:38 AM)

I sold my 2002 GS back in 2017. She was falling apart all over the place. So I sold her and bought a 2017 Focus RS in 2017.

Howdy all,

 

Fist time poster on this forum and I’d like to begin by saying that it seems like a great resource!

 

I recently picked up an 01 Buick Regal LS with 107K miles on it and I’m hitting some of the typical services that I suspect have been neglected for quite some time by the previous owner. Yesterday, I replaced the transmission filter with a new AC Delco 24227477. When I installed it, I noticed that it was not quite as snug as the old filter I had just removed. To be sure, I pulled the new filter off, reinstalled, and paid close attention to feel for the neck of filter to pop into place, which I believe I felt it do. However, there was still a bit of play to the body of the filter in comparison to the old one. Is there anything to be concerned about here? I don’t want to the filter to “fall out”, so to speak, or to allow fluid to get by the neck/gasket connection allowing unfiltered fluid to get back into the transmission and cause premature wear or worse.

 

I did not replace the small gasket/sleeve where the filter neck connects to the trans. It did not come out with the old filter and I opted to not mess with it per numerous recommendations in other online resources I’d reviewed prior to replacing the filter.

 

Is there anything for which I should watch out as I drive the vehicle? Is the fact that the filter is not as snug reason enough to fuss with dropping the pan again and perhaps swapping the filter neck gasket? I’m willing to buy another 7qts of fluid and replace the gasket/reinstall filter if it avoids major problems, but of course I’d rather not if there’s nothing to be concerned about here. Thanks in advance for any wisdom that you might be able to share.

if you left the old O ring in there you just push the new filter up in the hole till you feel it click. with no new O ring on the new filter. 

 

lubing the new filter end with some trans fluid helps it slide in nice too.

 

if it feels loose try pulling it back out, it takes a bit to get them out as you felt from the old one.

Thanks for the quick reply - I did everything that you listed and my question is that the filter is not as snug as the old one even after doing those things. I did button everything back up yesterday and the car drove just fine. I guess the reason for my post is that I'm debating if I should drop the pan again to reinstall the filter once more (perhaps with more force?) and possibly change the filter neck gasket.

it you could pull on it some what and it stayed up there in the hole im sure its fine.

 

if it does fall out you'll know it cause the trans will starve for fluid and start to whine.

Awesome, that's great info, thanks! How loud of a whine would it be? Slight or pretty loud and noticeable?
