1984 Oldsmobile Omega Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Oldsmobile? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. 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.
  • When should I have my Omega's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1984 Omega’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
