Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

How do I shut the windows?

If this isn't the silliest one you've heard..............I have my dad's Olds Silhouette. I think it's an '03. The rear side windows are open a crack. They're the kind that just push out a little, and I can't figure out how to close them (it's probably really simple!) and it's about to rain!

I have a 2001 olds silhouette and the driver side rear drum brake adjuster keeps breaking. I have replaced it twice now and its all put together right and the adjuster just keeps breaking. What would be...

Most unusual! Never heard of this. Are you certain the brake shoes are the correct fit for this vehicle, and are the front and rear shoes positioned correctly? I think I would pull both rear drums off, and compare the two sides, and see that everything is just alike. All the springs in the same holes, everything just alike. Also take the driver's side drum to a shop and have it checked for being out of round. Maybe the drum is warped or not true.
Good luck.

Sun roof on '03 Olds Alero will open completly but

Could be something sticking although it is odd that it shuts when cold but sticks when Hot. Normally when something heats up like that it shuts down not the other way around. Check for some miss placed glue or something that might loosen up when heated but get sticky when cold.

Rear window wiper works for a few days or weeks

Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.

1998 Olds Silhouette: My driver's side power window goes up slowly but down ok. I suspect that the motor is weak and needs to be replaced. Is that doable from home?

I would suggest before thinking the motor is bad that the tracks that the window run in need a good cleaning.
I bought 97 Olds a couple of years ago and had the same problem - after cleaning the gunk - I figured it was a soft drink of some flavor got spilled in the door - and lubing the regulator gears and joints with pure silicone spray ( don't use any product like WD40 as they are oil based and will attract dust ) it worked like new. If you need to replace the motor YES it can be done at home but give yourself plenty of time, it can be done but you won't do it in an hour

2003 Olds Silhouette air compressor won't shut off

The simple solution is to pull the fuse for the compressor.

If you want this fixed, you most likely have a leak and will need to find and fix it. The compressor may also be rebuilding. Probably not going to be worth putting the money into fixing.
