2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Oldsmobile's brakes? 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. 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.
  • When should I have my Silhouette's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2004 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
