1999 Oldsmobile Alero 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Oldsmobile? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Alero’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Alero transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Oldsmobile Alero’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Oldsmobile, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
