#1 of 13 95 Olds Aurora Overheating???!!! HELP!!!
Jun 30, 2008 (8:25 am)
Hello, I have a 95 olds aurora, and it keeps overheating, then shutting down. I just had an oil change because the car kept reading low oil pressure, and then I notices that the fan was out that cooled the engine, and I was told that it was the temperature coolant sensor, so I replaced that, but it's still overheating!!! Just the other day I was told that it was something to do with an electrical sensor that turns the fan on, but I don't know what that is. Can someone help me, I have a 10 month old son and it's the only transportation that we have, and can afford! HELP!
#2 of 13 Airbag light and transmission problems
Jul 05, 2008 (2:35 am)
i have a 95 aurora and for some strange reason the car will not go past second gear it only gets stuck like this when the airbag light is on... if the airbag light is off it changes gears just fine ... the first time it started doing this i had the transmission replaced and it lasted for about 8 mnts now its doing the same thing once again ... does any one out there know what this problem might be or how to solve this problem ... the car would be soooo perfect if it wasnt for this one reoccuring problem! and also when the car is in park and the airbag light is on when you change it to reverse or drive the car clunks really hard to the point where my muffler keeps falling off, it hits so hard!

dariushenry......you posted your transmission issue in the "95 Olds Aurora Overheating....." thread. You might have more success if you move your post to the "Olds Aurora Transmission" thread or the "Olds Aurora Maintenance and Repair" thread. I'm certain someone there can help you. Did you try to do a Forum search on your issue?

Hi! I know exactly what you are talking about and know the fix. It cost me over a grand two times before meeting the lead foreman for Olds to tell me the problem and fix. Problem - the coil packs are too close to the engine block for the 1995 and prior that will eventually lead to big dollars to replace all four/three (can't remember) if the engine gets too hot. Solution - whenever the engine starts to overheat, run the AC preferable the overhead vent near the windshield. This cools the engine off. Trust me, it works, escpecially getting stuck in trafic in DC or Boston.

Don't know if anyone replied to your message, but this does not sound good. I have a 2001 Old's SAME problem as you. I got all these well it could be this and it could be that. Turned out that it was the "head gaskets" meaning lot's of money to repair and you'r better off getting a rebuilt engine instead of paying that much for new headgaskets plus other problems can occur. If it is an electric sensor take it in to like a "Napa" store they will let you hook up a machine to for free to test if anything electronic is wrong with the car. However, will not tell you if it is a headgasket problem. My total bill $3,500.00. Re-built engine was about $1,200 labor sucks.

#9 of 13 olds. aurora over heating
Apr 19, 2009 (11:04 am)
we had a 95 aurora that over heated when we were on vacation in s.c. we had the oil changed before we left and the morans didnt hook the panel under the front bumper.that lets the air flow through the radiator. luckly my husband found the problem before it blew the engine.this panel would fall down in front of the radiator as soon as the wind caught it. it was ok when just idling.there are two small pins that hold this panel in place. check it out. its a cheap fix. anytime that you have work on an aurora it is really costly and these mechanics will rip ya off if ya arent careful.
