Questions About 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado’s Transmission

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
