#450 of 474 Re: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora Spark Plug Change [ronlippa]
Jan 14, 2007 (1:29 pm)
The spark plugs are right in the top of the cam covers. But there are no wires to them because the car uses coil-on-plug ignition. You'll have to remove the coil pack from each cam cover to reveal the spark plugs. I'd post a link to the aurora club of north america where there's a writeup of the swap, but I'm sure my reply would just get deleted, as Edmund's frowns on that.
#451 of 474 Function of camshaft sensor?
Feb 08, 2007 (8:38 am)
The camshaft sensor on my 2000 or 2001 Aurora started acting up, causing unreliable starting. An auto mechanic removed the sensor and found a small metal chip on the face of it. A new sensor was installed and car operation returned to normal.
My first question is: Where did that metal chip probably come from and what, if anything does it mean? Is there a big problem lurking ahead?
Second, unrelated (I think) question: A lot of grease was found under the car near the right front wheel. It was on the framework and nearby items. If this grease came from the car, what is the most likely source? The mechanic removed most of this grease. I will return to the mechanic in a day or two and we will see whether more grease shows up, and if it does, try to find the source.
Thanks for any info on these items.
#452 of 474 '97 Aurora Stock Wheels MUST SELL
Feb 18, 2007 (5:21 pm)
I bought my 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora about a year ago. I recently sold it and now I am stuck with the stock wheels. They are in great shape and I must get these things out of my barn!
Name YOUR price!
Please email me and let me know if you are interested.
#453 of 474 How to remove coolant cap?
Mar 11, 2007 (9:05 am)
My Aurora says it is low on coolant. I can turn the coolant cap about a quarter turn and then it seems to grab or bind. Is it okay to force it open from there, or is there some trick?

Press down on it as you turn.
#455 of 474 Odometer: Km vs. Mi.
Apr 06, 2007 (6:30 am)
My parents have a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora with an odometer that apparently reads in kilometers, while the speedometer reads in mph. Is there a way to change the odometer to read in miles rather than km? My dad says he's looked through the manual and can find no information on this. Someone suggested that perhaps the car had been manufactured for Canada delivery (distance in km and speed in mph) and that there is no way to change the odometer reading to miles.
Any thoughts/ideas would be appreciated.
#456 of 474 1996 with Check Engine Light
Jun 01, 2007 (8:16 pm)
My Check Engine light goes off and on. I just recently got the car and wondered what options I have. The car seems to be running great and the light does not stay on all the time. Any suggestions would be helpful.

One or more of the national chains (like Autozone, PepBoys, etc.) will read the codes for you free. I have my own code scanner, so I haven't tried this and do not remember which companies. Check around.
#458 of 474 Resetting Low Tire Pressure indicator?
Jul 21, 2007 (8:07 am)
I got a notice that tire pressure was low. I fixed the tire pressures. But I can't reset the low tire pressure indicator. I press the reset button and the indicator goes off until I turn off the engine. On the next restart, the low tire pressure warning is back. How can I fix it to stay off?
#459 of 474 GM antifreeze ?
Jul 21, 2007 (3:22 pm)
I have 95 Aurora and the add coolant idiot light came on. I am concerned what type of coolant to use. I know GM uses the red coolant, but the green colored coolant is in the car. I am unaware if this has been replaced since I bought the car used. I also heard you should not mix the two, hence my concern. A little insight on the types of coolant would be great.
