Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Open Question

My Oldsmobile Silhouette won't start. Last night I went shopping and the van worked fine. Today I went to go to work and the van would not start. It would crank but it would not turn over. I opened the hood and there was a hissing sound coming from a cylindrical object attached to the overflow tank. I have plenty of gas and the battery has a good charge.

SOURCE: Replacing dashboard lights on an 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Van?

this will take some time but is fairly easy. you have to remove the dash pieces on that side. then this will allow you access to the instrument cluster. becareful not to wear clothing that will give off a static discharge this could short out the cluster board. the bulbs are tiny so be careful while rep-lacing them. the bulbs can be purchased at a local store the bulbs are a 194 or a 1893 in most cases.

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: 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette Trac System and ABS Stop working

I think your abs sensor is dirty and needs to be cleaned.

There are many things that can cause your ABS light to come on. Some are serious, so you should never just ignore the light. But there are times when the light comes on and can be met with a simple solution. For instance, a dirty ABS wheel sensor can cause the system to trigger the ABS light during self evaluation. You'll be shocked when you see how much road gunk can accumulate on this very important sensor.
Even if your ABS light hasn't made an appearance, it's a good idea to clean the sensor. A good time to do it would be during brake pad replacement when you have the wheels off anyway
Begin by loosening your wheel lugs, then jack the front of the car up and rest it securely on jack stands. With the car safe, remove the wheel lugs and take the front wheels off.
With the wheel off, turn the steering wheel all the way in, opposite the side your working on. For example if your working on the passenger side, turn the wheel all the way toward the drivers side.

Locate the ABS wheel sensor. Remove the bolts that attach it to the rest of the suspension. You may also need to remove a few bolts to pull the sensor away from the vehicle for cleaning. Follow the line to see if there are more bolts. Remember not to force it or pull too hard. Then along the line theres another two 10mm bolts, that need to be removed, just follow the abs sensor line to get at them.

With the sensor free, take your rag and wipe the sensor until its clean. I prefer not to use any chemicals on the sensor to avoid potential problems. If you need to, use mild soapy solution and rinse well.
Reinstall the sensor in the same manner it was removed.

over time our starters get a flat spot on them from wear. Or the solenoid is starting to go out. The solenoid is an electric switch that mounts on the starter. In my opinion its your starter....

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.

Power steering


Have you inspected the belt? It is probably stretched or damaged...the belt turns the power steering unit, and charges your battery via the alternator...(low battery light) Did you drive through some deep water last night? Be sure to inspect this so you do not get stranded. Hope this helps.

Constant beeping when opening door to exit van


Good news. After letting the van sit for a few hours, when I went to get in it again, I opened the van with the key (ie. not the remote fob) and there was no beeping. I don't know if checking all the fuses (I fulled and checked each one), or disconnecting the battery, using the key, or just letting it sit did the trick, but it is now fixed.
