1993 Oldsmobile 88 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Oldsmobile's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Oldsmobile 88? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 88 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 88's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Oldsmobile 88’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform.
