2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Oldsmobile's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Silhouette towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Silhouette's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2003 Silhouette’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
