Having problems with your 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora ?

1996 Olds Aurora will not start.

\015 Hello, can you please help me? \015\012I have a 1996 Olds Aurora that was getting progressivly harder to start over a few months time. Motor would crank and crank and crank, but not fire. Would eventually catch and run, sometimes with a mini-backfire. After it started in the morning, it would run fine and start any other time of the day. Then on the way to work one morning, I was at a red light and it was running fine, then all of a sudden, it stalled. Since then, I have not been able to get it to start again and am out of ideas. Please help....\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Hi, I had the same problem with my dad's 1996 Aurora. It was hard starting and backfire sometimes but when started up it ran fine. I had to change the fuel pressure regulator and never had any trouble since. Just to confirm read forums on the Aurora owners sight.

I have a '01 Olds Aurora. It has an issue with starting.When the key is turned to start the engine all the accessories come on but the starter does nothing. This happens in the morning, but not all the time and after several times it will start and once it does it will start for the rest of the day. This started happening this past summer and has progressively gotten worse. The car did have a remote starter in it that was removed before we got it. We took it in they could not figure it out, they

Normally, with this truck, when you take your foot off the gas it will go to 500RPMs and hold steady and never threaten to stall. In it's failing mode it's as though it forgot to go into idle.

Ok i have a 1996 olds aurora its been sitting up for 6 months.i just replaced spark plugs,wire,etc. i started it with starter fluid & it started. then i pressed on the gas then the car cut off. it has a new fuel pump could it be the car is not getting enough pressure from the fuel relay, although the car is getting gas to the engine. there are no cracks in the fuel delivery system.

I have a 1996 Olds Aurora...it turns over, but takes longer then normal to start. It's like it doesn't catch right away. If it was the starter or starter relay connecters then it wouldn't turn over at all. It turns over and eventually starts, but takes a while to catch. Any ideas?

2001 Olds Aurora 4.0, 157,000 miles. After engine warms, the in-dash and auditible low oil pressure warning occurs when stopping for a traffic signal or stop sign. It immediately goes off when I resume higher rpms. When it first started two years ago, I switched to a high mileage 5W30 oil and the problem stopped. A couple of months ago, it started again. The problem is not related to low level and the high mileage oil is still being used. Engine uses only 1/2 quart between 3000 mile oil change

A key, without a chip, was cut to open the door of my 2002 Honda Odyssey. Unfortunately, someone tried to start the van with the same key. It is now stuck in the ignition and I can not pull it out. The ignition will not turn to 0 it will only turn to I. The van will start if the old key is held to the key in the ignition but the light for the gear shifter will not go off, the P stays lit. Do you know if the key can be removed and if so, how?
