If your transmission just suddenly stops working, there is a transmission module on this car, and it gives the signs that the transmission is bad, but the reverse works great.

Make sure you look at the transmission fluid; make sure it's not burnt. But for $13 for the transmission module, it's worth it.

Hope this works for you

At Autozone they make aftermarket airshocks that are lifetime guaranteed for a total of $75.00 for the pair.

They're easy to install, and well worth keeping the auto level setup.

They help in many ways, and it's best to keep the car working the way it should be.

Having the same problem. Stop, won't start, we think it's the factory alarm.

We have a 1995 Riviera, and the battery in our car is under the back seat.

It is the load levelers... My 95 Riv does it all the time, but it hasn't drained the battery...

What is this computer module called? My PRNDL flashes 5 times, and then the PRNDL is OK for a while. The temp. gauge is also fluctuating.

Is it easy to replace the computer?

Could be the brake booster.

The traction light comes on with a fault on the quad circuit. The quad circuit includes the tranny sensor, purge solenoid and boost valve as I recall. I found that replacing the boost turned that light off on mine. I went ahead and replaced the purge solenoid as well as the cost was low (a few dollars) and it was easy to get to.

I found similar with a bad boost valve and a bad EGR valve. Once I replaced both, it increased power immensely. Also you can try an ignition module swap and/or ignition modules. Check your plug wires and plugs. I had to take it to a local shop with a lift to get the back side plugs and wires replaced. If you have any check engine codes, get Autozone to scan it for more precise help.

Just did mine. You have to pull that power steering pulley and the pump bolt behind that stuff to pull the bracket.

It's the level ride. I have had this thing diagnosed more than 5 times and no one can find a leak. Put new air shocks in and my next move is to disconnect the unit and hard pipe the air lines. If anyone knows the solution without buying a new one, please share!

I had knocking noise in my '95. It was the harmonic balancer. Changed it. Fixed the problem. I guess it's common. Had 144k miles. Gonna check the EGR & boost valve for power loss. LOVE THE CAR!

Any luck finding the problem?

I've had my 1996 Riveria for 8 years and maybe 35000 miles.

I rarely can burn a tank of fuel before something needs repaired.

Fuel lines, brake lines, master cylinders, intake plenum, numerous window/seat switches, window leaks in trunk, fuel pump mounting gasket, and more.

I love to drive, but after 70+ years of age I have not owned a more unreliable vehicle. Now has an engine misfire and has been towed home numerous times. I want this to be my last vehicle, but it is trying me.
