2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


I hate this van! The seat heaters quit working,can live w/that, the speakers SUCK. Power door on the passenger side not only doesn't work but will not unlock w/the electronic locks or manually so it can't be opened at all. I've replaced Battery, thermostat, heater/AC blower motor, the resistor(that melted), water pump, belt, Intake Manifold gaskets(top &bottom), heater hose. The entire engine cooling system & heater/AC system cannot handle the pressure &original parts corrode quickly! It's fuel injected but have to give it gas to start it. And now it needs a new Harmonic Balancer-because they couldn't just bolt on the pulley for the belt, they used something rubber that corrodes too!

Best Features

The interior is nice to look at, it's a pretty color... uh... yup that's it!

Worst Features

Use better quality hoses, gaskets, seals. I had 4 mechanic shops give me estimates and NONE of them will use original parts because they are not dependable.
