Questions About 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Custom Cruiser is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Custom Cruiser's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
