1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Custom Cruiser towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Custom Cruiser's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
