1996 Oldsmobile Aurora Problems
The radiator may leak from the plastic side tank area. The coolant loss could cause the engine to overheat. Our technicians warn that overheating these engines can lead to head gasket failure.
An automatic transmission fluid leak may develop from the rubber section of a transmission cooler line. In some cases the rubber section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this type of leak.
The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart.
The head light switch may fail causing erratic head light operation.

1996 Oldsmobile Aurora Reviews
I've had my 96 Aurora since 2004, and its a very good car. Pricey and expensive for repairs, but what do you expect for a luxury car. I tell you what, its a better gas mileage car than a Cadillac, and i really like Cadillacs.
Bought my 96 Aurora in 2006 with 72,000. It's starting to nickel and dime me. Fuel Injector, heating/AC, now the radiator.
First 2 years were wonderful and care free. Enjoy it while you can, once the repairs start it's very costly.
