2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette


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.

The rear light socket plate may fail causing a brake light or other rear light to stop working.

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