Transmission problem
1992 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

ok I bought a 1992 buick lesabre custom for 400 a couple days ago. The people we bought it from claimed the fuel pump was bad and they said go easy on the gas pedal because if you press to hard it won't go anywhere and on hills it really won't work. So when this happens the car stays on and just revs but won't move. We got it home ok but had to give it a little push on a hill but other than that we were just going kind of slow but on the interstate it was perfect. So today my dad drove it and tells me the transmission works intermittenly and won't slip into gear. I really need an answer! Plz help

An easy way to tell if its the trans or fuel pump is to smell the transmission fluid if it smells burnt then that means its your transmission, and from what I know fuel pumps dont work kinda or sorda, they work or they dont. (Lol) the cheap way is to smell your trans fluid and if its not that then change your fuel pump. Because a trans coast way more then a fuel pump.

Hope it helps
