2002 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.
Water may be drawn into the secondary air injection (AIR) pump causing the pump to fail and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a kit available from General Motors to relocate the air intake for the pump which should prevent future damage from water intrusion.
