1986 Oldsmobile Calais Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • What can I tow in a Oldsmobile? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Calais’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Calais is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Calais's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Oldsmobile Calais transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Oldsmobile Calais? Yes. Oldsmobile Calais transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues.
