About Oldsmobile Bravada

As General Motors' first foray into the mid-size SUV class and the only SUV model ever produced by Oldsmobile, Oldsmobile Bravada was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Oldsmobile between 1991 and 1994, after two-year hiatus, again from 1996 to 2004 as a mid-size luxury Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced as an upscale version of the 4-door Chevrolet S10 Blazer and GMC Jimmy, Bravada experienced two periods of development. After being manufactured through three generations, Brava was replaced by the Buick Rainier and Saab 9-7X.
The second-generation Oldsmobile Bravada was produced from 1996 to 2001 and appeared as a distinguishing model from the Chevrolet Blazer and GMC Jimmy by its Oldsmobile-styled body-colored split grille, premium alloy wheels, and lower bodyside cladding. Equipped with a Smart Trak system, Bravada then was powered by a 4.3 L V6 rated at 191 horsepower and this engine sent power through a 4-speed automatic transmission to four wheels. The last-generation Bravada debuted in February 2001 as a 2002 model. It was the first truck produced at the GMT360 platform as well as the last new Oldsmobile model. During this generation, Oldsmobile Bravada was powered by a 4.2 L inline 6-cylinder engine rated at 270 horsepower and power was sent through a 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels or four wheels.

Oldsmobile Bravada Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Some Bravada drivers complained the transmission failure brings about an unsmooth driving experience, the indicator will not match the gears, which is dangerous. And the vehicle may also refuse to go into gear or starting in another gear. And the Bravada shift cable is the culprit. As for suspension failure, if you could hear clunking, rattling or squeaking noises from underneath the vehicle, see abnormal, uneven and excessive tire wear and feel sluggish in response due to intense car vibration, tilting vehicle and loose steering wheel, you need to inspect the Bravada front cross-member, sway bar bushing, wheel bearing and sway bar bracket.
Second, engine failure is the last problem that Oldsmobile Bravada drivers want to meet during driving. But according to Bravada owners, the cooling system will also fail to aggravate the engine failure. When the coolant starts to leak, the engine will overheat and keep at a high operation temperature, which is harmful to engine performance. Therefore, the engine will run roughly, misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues such as hard starting and inability to start. Finally, you will notice a decrease in power while acceleration and lit Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light. In order to avoid these symptoms, you must keep the Bravada radiator, throttle cable, oxygen sensor, body control module, drive belt, distributor cap and distributor reluctor are always working properly.
