You are in the Oldsmobile Aurora
What is this discussion about?
Oldsmobile Aurora, Sedan

Does anyone have a 1997 Aurora window sticker (Monroney label) that they would be willing to copy and mail to me (or scan and email)? I did not buy my Classic new, so I do not have the window sticker. I have them for all the new cars I bought back to 1970. I want to try to create a reproduction for my records.
Pontiac Historical Services can provide reproduction stickers for many Pontiacs. However, I cannot find a similar service for Oldsmobiles.

I tried google for reproduce window sticker automobile and got several sites.
says that they reproduce Oldsmobile exact for the vin number you supply. An exact sticker for your car correct for price changes during the year sounds good to me.

In Batman Begins, in the funeral scene for Bruce's parents, a black Classic Aurora is prominantly shown among some other luxury cars. Getting a shot from the rear and another of the hood. The girlfriend rolled her eyes when I said, "Hey! There's an Aurora" But what do you expect? Not since Matrix Reloaded has the car gotten such screen time.

Hey all you old schoolers. Stick, henry, RJS, Javi, Hammen ect..... Been a while since Ive been here. Mostly because I have had very few problems in the last few years. (knocking on wood) lol.
Update: My 95 is at 140,000 miles and going stronger than ever. Got a few more rattles here and there and few cosmetic issues because of age , but besides fixing the wires in my driver side door jam Ive been repair free for a few years now. Switched up to Valvoline Max life recently and it has made my engine run a lot smoother. Paid the note off on it last year and now its time to drive it till it peacfully goes to rest. But I dont see that happening anytime soon. Just wanted to say whats up to you guys and it looks like I need to get in here more often to help out the new crop of Aurora owners.
Temp issues: For you guys asking the temp questions. It is totally normal for the Aurora to run at 195* and go up to 225* in traffic or standing still. The northstar runs a lot hotter than a normal engine. The fans turn on at 226* I believe so unless your temp guage is going over 226* you are fine. Different Tstats will give you different temps. When I first got my Aurora it always ran at around 195*. When I replaced the original Tstat I found it was stuck open which is why it never went to 225*.

#5598 of 5876 Saying hello!!
Jul 10, 2005 (4:16 pm)
Hello to Kayaman,mrdubya,RJS, et al,
I hadn't been around for awhile, for several reasons: one - I lost my '97 classic in a parked wreck ( car was parked, and a drunk totalled it!), and I replaced my Aurora with a Mark VIII LSC. They have a couple of really involved websites and I'd been spending my time beefing up the car. However, when I was feeling how passionate the owners are on those sites, it just reminded me that there was only one other place on earth where folks were so serious about their cars, and I had to come back just to catch up and see how everyone was. I have been a licensed driver since the 70's and this was the first time and place that I'd gone on a website or been part of a car community being here! The info I received made me more knowledgeable and saved me quite a bit of cash too!! In fact, it was from being here that when I bought the Lincoln, I went looking until I'd found a site that gave me what I had/have here. I really have my hands full until about X-mas with the Mark, but I am seriously going to be on the lookout for a 2nd Aurora after that. There are similarities, but I love the Mark for what it is, and the Aurora for its' own right as well if that makes sense. They each have their own feel, and drivers' niche. Good to see you are still all here.! Without my Aurora, I don't have two cents to throw in any more, but I will be reading. Take care!

Original owner of 98 classic with 151K miles. Car overheated and I hoped for simple hose leak. Radiator shop can find nothing wrong with cooling system. Car overheats (280 degrees) with a/c on and coolant boils out of reserve.
They suspect blow head gasket. Anything more minor that can cause overheating like this?
