1984 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Oldsmobile's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Oldsmobile? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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.
  • How often does my Custom Cruiser transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
