Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette
Sounds like the Automatic Transmission "lock-up". If you haven't changed your filter and fluid in a while do that. There are some good additives to help the transmissions when they get old. Lucas was one I used. My APV got so hot in Palm Springs, CA I had to go in and get some additive before it would move. I loosened the line to the radiator to get a little fluid out and eventually went to a add-on cooling radiator, like you would for a towing vehicle. It seemed to quiet all the noises.
The vacuum modulator went out an other time - but that prevented the car from shifting up to second.
