2002 Oldsmobile Aurora Problems

Fuel Level Sensor Failure

It is common for the sending unit to read the fuel level incorrectly. This is due to a defective module. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump and sending unit replaced because the module is currently not offered separately from the pump and sending unit.

Engine Overheating May Cause Cylinder Head to Expand

Overheating of the engine may cause the cylinder head to expand, severely straining the head bolts and damaging the threads in the engine block. This commonly results in a blown head gasket. Our technicians tell us the engine block threads must be repaired before the cylinder head is reinstalled.

"No start" Caused By Failed Fuel Pump

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart.
