RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Oldsmobile Silhouette based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The rear light socket plate may fail causing a brake light or other rear light to stop working.
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.
The rubber section of an automatic transmission cooler line may develop a fluid leak . In some cases the leaking section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this concern.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.
