Questions About 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette’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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Oldsmobile tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Silhouette’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Silhouette's transmission fluid need to be inspected?
