Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

We have an aurora 95 that clunks into reverse

We have an aurora 95 and were having some issues with the battery being drainded. Then one morning (it was well below freezing) i went to start it and the check engine light came on after i went to put in into reverse. There was a loud clunk and... that is where it sat till later when it warmed up. then we tried again. the clunk was still there but it drove fine. the transmission fluid was very low and has been filled but it still clunks. We were told that the cv joints were going bad. and i knew what that soudned like. It makes a louder clunk in reverse than when it is put into drive.

Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.

SOURCE: engine makes a loud noise when you accelerate

sorry tac22,you don't. there is no dip stick .apparently,they don't want (or need)us bothering with that! i asked my dealer the same question and he said i didn't need to worry about the trans fluid. if you have transmission problems then have a "qualified technician"service it,but apparently,it is "maintainance-free". hope that helps!

SOURCE: CV joint noise

this sounds like a normal condition. sorry i cant give a real great technical explanation why, but it is. are you jacking up one side of the vehicle only? you will find that if both wheels are off the ground or if one is still on the ground, it will act completely different. just the way the final drive is set up.

I have 95 olds aurora there is a single sometimes triple clunking noise when I turn or when I accelerate more often when it warm outside but sometimes when it cold

drive shaft end couplings ,ignore till they start crunching in the straight ahead position ,No doubt the rubber covers are split of missing so strip the end off the shaft and put the end on a small bucket of diesel the tap the round ring down on one end so the ball bearing bearing comes out and repeat this till all 6 are out ,now twist the inner part so the arms are between to holes in the cage ,then turn this till it comes out now give it all a good clean and refit in reverse procedure ,but of grease in the bottom through the hole that the drive shaft goes into fit the new rubber boot over the drive shaft and the refit the coupling fit but more grease under the rubber ,refit the boot and job done .Its a easy job to do -MESSYAND MUCKY yes but a relativly simple job

Heater stopped working this morning on my 95 Olds Aurora. A/C also fails to work. Any relay or fuse I should check for first?

there should be a fuse located on fuse panel for heater motor( 30 A Green)....after you check fuse other possibilities are bad fan motor...bad heater resistor block.....bad relay...the resistor blocks are very common problems

i had the same problem with a little more symptoms, that you have reported.
i found that there was a recall on he fuel line. the stainless steal line wares down and begins to leak. This issue affects the oil pressure and causes the car to stall.
