1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Cutlass Ciera towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Cutlass Ciera is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Cutlass Ciera's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
