1996 Oldsmobile Achieva Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Oldsmobile's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Oldsmobile tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Achieva towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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? Maintaining your Oldsmobile Achieva transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health.
