My aurora did the same thing, and I did replace the secondary air injection unit, mine has the 4.0 v-8 and the location of the one I changed is near firewall in the middle above the valve cover/coil over unit. see if the vacuum line popped off or melted that's what mine did, and exhaust was escaping did cause veh to perform poorly, and couldn't get but about 65 mph tops on the interstate. changed the rear one and problem solved. however it could be caused by a plugged catalytic converter which could cause the air injection to go bad. I took my catalytic converter off and cleaned/knocked it out. but depending on your local codes if your county requires the emission testing you would need to replace the catalytic converter. Luckily my county does not.

Usually if a vehicle won't start up, a few things could be wrong with it;

Try testing the starter; if it works when power is supplied to it, then there is another problem.
The battery could need to be replaced, you can have that tested at your local auto parts store.
the alternator could be bad as well, you can have that tested too.
Other than that, you could be having trouble with blown fuses, and you may have to replace the relays for the starter or ignition system.

Take it to a auto parts store they,ll test it for free and can probaly tell you exactly whats wrong.Probably a sensor or something.

2001 Oldsmobile... | Answered on Sep 15, 2013

The coolant level sensor is inside the coolant bottle. It is not replaceable separately. You will have to replace the reservoir to replace the sensor.

It's in the right head at the transmission side of the engine.

Don't worry or panic, This is very Common in Auroras especially with the 3.5 engine. I can't guarantee it will always start when you wait a while. But till this day my aurora does the same thing, no sound from the starter at all, then it starts. There is a good chance its the crank sensor. Not a hard or expensive job, just sucks if that ends up not being the problem. Its one of the problems with my aurora but am not exactly sure if that's whats causing it to randomly not crank. My advice just wait A while. when my aurora finally cranks, the rpm jumps and reads backwards.

Sounds like your oil pump pressure relief valve is stuck ?

2001 Oldsmobile... | Answered on Aug 26, 2013

it should be in the oil pan. Drain the oil, remove the bolts, remove the pump, and when re-installing get a new pan gasket or it will leak.

2001 Oldsmobile... | Answered on Aug 26, 2013

Pan is towards the back of the engine underneath. If you cant find the correct spot pour some oil in and find the leak this is where the plug should go.

Disconnect the battery fully for ten seconds. Then reconnect the battery, it should reset. If it does not, you will have to go to your local garage and have them reset it. This should work though, give it a shot.
