Oldsmobile Silhouette Problems

Rear Lights May Not Work Due to Rear Light Socket Plate Failure

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

Intake Manifold Gasket May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

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.
