1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Oldsmobile's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Silhouette's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1992 Silhouette’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.
