Questions About 1999 Oldsmobile LSS’s Transmission

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Oldsmobile? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your LSS’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your LSS is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my LSS's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 LSS’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
