1998 Oldsmobile LSS Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Oldsmobile? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 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. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my LSS's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Oldsmobile LSS transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
