2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Problems

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition is best corrected by replacement of the front rotors and brake pads.

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.

2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Questions

We changed the both tenion pullies and the belt. The squeal went away for a while and now its back. Can't seem to find the problem. This squeal happens at about 2000rpms. It happens all the time and seems to get worse when its cold.

On my 2000 Olds. Silhouette van, after I start it I get the"change the oil light" on for two minutes and then it goes out every single time. I already change the milage counting to cero and pushed the gas pedal three times as required. Any sudgestions?

My transmission has shown no signs of distress, but my van stopped shifting into gear.
