The Oldsmobile Silhouette was a minivan that was sold at various times between 1997 and 2005 as part of the U series of minivans. It was offered in both short- and long-wheelbase forms and offered the convenience of sliding rear doors. It was powered by a popular 3.4-liter V6 gasoline engine, so spares are not difficult to find. A crash test video of its sister car, the 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport, demonstrated that it suffered extreme damage in the 40mph frontal impact, to the extent that the dummy’s foot was severed. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Oldsmobile Silhouette repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
