2001 Oldsmobile Aurora low coolant light is on the dash.
I am trying to find the location of the low coolant sensor on this vehicle. It keeps coming on and
indicating that the coolant is low but the coolant is not low. I will just replace the sensor if I can find
it on the vehicle. Can you help?
The coolant level sensor is in the bottom of the coolant reservoir. It is not replaceable separately.
You will have to replace the reservoir to replace the sensor. You want to try this- with the key off,
disconnect the sensor, bang on the reservoir a few times, reconnect, and then start car.
Sometimes this will free-up a stuck sensor.

When you come out of park and go in to reverse or drive and on the brake while car is moving
slowly you will hear and feel in the brake pedal a clunk just once then its not there at all you can
come to a complete stop and go again and it will not do it. Only happens when u come out of park
Well, kind of hard to say without feeling / hearing it. A few things to have checked would be the
lower control arm bushings, ball joints, frame mounts. Control arm bushings can do this one time
feel by shifting position and staying there until you put in park and get it to do it again.

Question: I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue and it has had the light on for fluid level low , and has
been worked on for this issue before. The fan was blowing and it was over heating so they fixed
that. It was fine until tonight. The car has that light on, the car is over heating when i drive, when i
am idle it goes back down, which its normally the other way around. Then my car acted like it
wouldnt start , but it did and i was driving. I got home and had my dad put coolant in it, then i tried
starting my car three times and it wouldn't start. The fourth time it started but barley. WHAT CAN I
DO? I NEED MY CAR? What is wrong with it.
Well,that depends on what has been done. The problem on your Oldsmobile you are describing
sounds like a bad head gasket. That would explain the overheating at idle, hard starting and loss
of coolant. Another common problem specific to the 3800 engine is a bad upper intake manifold
plenum. they break internally and cause coolant loss and the cylinders get filled with and burn the
antifreeze. You need a pressure test to find out what is going on, as well as removing spark plugs
and looking for signs of burning antifreeze.
