Questions About 1998 Oldsmobile Regency’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Oldsmobile? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Oldsmobile Regency? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Regency towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Regency's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Oldsmobile Regency 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.
