Sounds like the torque converter lockup is not working. IT could be that a solenoid has failed or the torque converter is bad. This is not going to be cheap

While driving 2ooo silhouette van, the rpm gauge goes erratic and the change engine oil light comes on, followed by battery light, then it feels like transmision slips or en gine stalls and comes back on...


sounds like your alternator is about to go out, not feeding enough currant to the electrical components that need it, i.e. ECM , ESM..and so on.
you may want to have that checked or replaced.
always a good idea to replace the battery when replacing the alternator.

2000 Olds Silhouette (3.4L) coolant change/flush.


Power flushing is usually not a good thing as the heater cores can become blocked.I would suggest to remove the lower rad hose and drain as much coolant as possible.Refill with clear water with lower hose reattached.Bleed system of air as you fill with water and keep filling until operating temp is reached.Drive and return and drain it again the same way,now refill with at least 1 and 1/2 gallons of dexcool and don't forget to add the vegetable based aluminum protector required in your vehicle available from gm and make sure you bleed the air from the system from the valve just to the rear of the rad filler neck on the engine at the end of the coolant pipe running across the front of the engine.

Estimate of labor charges for replacing alternator on a 2002 Silhouette.


Typically the Silhouette and the Transport are the same vehicle. I spent about 45 minutes to replace the Alternator on my former Transport. It depends upon the prevailing Labor Rate what you will have to pay. I would guess somewhere around $75-$200 fro Labor alone.

How do t replace the alt. in a 2000 olds silhouette


Remove the two front motor mounts mounted on the frame above the radiator.This is not a weight bearing mount it is for vibration. The engine will not move much once removed. Ratchet the motor forward using a ratcheting strap hooked to the black arm that extends above the motor located on the right side. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the two mounting bolts on the face of the alternator and the one behind the alternator. Remove the connections and alternator. To reinstall, reverse the process. You will not have enough clearance to remove the alternator without ratcheting the motor forward.
