Regal LS 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 136,000 miles

Most likely that transmission failure was caused by prior lack of maintenance and possibly improper prior repair (used vehicle purchase). Vehicle may have been operated with low transmission oil level; several bolts missing on transmission oil pan, seal leaks may have been a factor. Be sure to have transmission serviced professionally every 30,000 mi with transmission oil change and new pan gaskets, for better service without problems.
