1997 Oldsmobile Aurora 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Oldsmobile Aurora? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Aurora’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Aurora is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Aurora transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Aurora’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Oldsmobile. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
