Questions About 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Oldsmobile's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Firenza’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Firenza is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Firenza's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Oldsmobile Firenza’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
