Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Open Question

I got code P1811 for my 1999 oldsmobile silhouette.

Our fan is shifting hard. I know this a code for the transmission. I am wondering is it going to be a simple fix or is it a transmission overhaul.

SOURCE: How do I recharge the AC on 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette?

You need to check for leaks first. WalMart sells a kit to recharge your a/c system with R-134a and a stop leak sealer. Make sure your core valve is tight. You'll need a longer valve tool than what you use for your tires. Good luck

SOURCE: drain the antifreeze on a oldsmobile silhouette

Under the bottom of the radiator on the there is a drain ****, you will have to raise the car and crawl under it to see it, be careful to not break it, the screw in plug is fragile, it will be hard to unscrew.

SOURCE: 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette ABS Light is on and

The first thing i would check is all 4 abs sensors at the wheels.You can do this with a volt meter set on ac voltage and spin the wheel if it generates voltage at all on the meter its good.

try having your transmission filter changed there only about 15 - 20 bucks but you will have to buy transmission fluid. ive seen that solve that problem in a few vechiles. if you do it yourself there is a magnet located in the transmission pan that you have to remove to change the filter and if it is full of metal shavings i suggest asking a local transmission shop about having trouble with that type of vechicle

When accelerating from a stop, car lurches when shifting gears


On a lot of vehicles there is a transmission speed sensor that receives data that tells it how fast the car is going and shifts accordingly. If this sensor is bad the transmission can't function properly. I would have this checked, they are not that terribly expensive, and not that hard to change on most vehicles. Hope this helps.
