Questions About 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass’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 I tow in a Oldsmobile Cutlass? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Cutlass’s towing capacity.

A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Oldsmobile. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
