2002 olds silhouette. Got oil changed.In minutes oil pressure light. SHop says sensure problem don't worry. 50 miles and engine loudly ticking, light back. Is my engine toast??

How many miles on engine? How often do you change oil? Used this shop before? Used same type of oil always? Best would be to install mechanical pressure gauge to see what is going on.

I just bough an Oldsmobile silhouette 1999 and I would like to know what kind of service it needs, I mean oil change etc.

oil changes should be done about 2,000 miles(5,000 kil),tune-ups about 50-60,000 kil,tranny service about every 80,000kil,if you go to a library you should be able to get a book for your vehicle that will have service intervals in it that you can copy.

Leaking above oil filter in 1999 olds silhouette

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have an oil change. Replace the oil filter after you drain all of the oil for the filter's rubber seal is surely worn out that's why it's leaking. You'll be good after the procedure.

Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

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
