1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Oldsmobile's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Oldsmobile Silhouette? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Silhouette’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Silhouette is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Silhouette's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1993 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
