The most likely culprit is the pressure control solenoid in the transmission. The other concern would be that you have a trouble code set that hasn't caused the service engine soon lamp to come on, but is set due to something inside the trans. I would get the vehicles computer scanned to see if it has any codes set. Worst case is the trans has caused a code p1811 to set which could mean that the trans is failing which is causing the adaptive pressures to be at there max limit. Russtech67

Why does my poulan hydrostat transmission seem to slip when pedal is fully down?

It could be one of a few things. 1) You could have a belt slipping or going bad. 2) The transaxle could be low on fluid. 3) The transaxle is going bad. While most service centers will tell you that the transaxle is not servicable, you can take it apart, clean it out and replace the filter in hopes of making it work again. Sometimes you can bring it back to life and sometimes it's just worn out.

Why would your 1995 Buick Regal jerk the entire time you are driving as if you are accelerating and decelerating at the same time?

my 1995 buick regal is starting to do it too but mainly when going uphill or accelerating hope someone answeers soonAnswerI am not sure if this is the same problem, but my 95 regal had what I would call a "surging" or stuttering problem...This was supposedly caused by a spark plug wire shorting out at the boot thus causing a missfire... AnswerMy 1995 Buick Regal was doing this. Mine was a transmission problem. I didn't need a whole new transmission, but I did need to replace the lines because they were leaking fluid. You should definitely get it checked out. AnswerJust had my 2002 into a Transmission shop. The brake switch needed adjusting. I had no check engine light. You might want to get the brake switch checked. Check the map sensor. Mine was doing that, and after having trans check and several parts replaced on it, it ended up being the map sensor
