  • How much can I tow in a Oldsmobile Toronado? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Toronado's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Oldsmobile Toronado transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health.

The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
