What’s the Importance of Your 1994 Achieva’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Achieva’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Oldsmobile Achieva transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Oldsmobile Achieva transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Achieva’s not even driveable.

1994 Oldsmobile Achieva Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Oldsmobile's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Oldsmobile tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Achieva’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Achieva is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Achieva's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Oldsmobile Achieva’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Oldsmobile's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can Oldsmobile Achieva transmission fluid leak? Yes. Oldsmobile Achieva transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
