Oldsmobile Silhouette Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue

Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.

Inspect transmission/fluid every 30,000 miles

You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned, the transmission system should be completely flushed.

Replace spark plugs every 100,000 miles

The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
