Yes it can be done, but its better to remove the heads...
, use one of these methods,
#1
you need to get the cylinder on the compression stroke (both valves closed) remove spark plug and make sure the engine will NOT turn over !!
using a compressor and sparkplug adapter fill the cylinder with air which will hold the valves closed and with the springs removed change the seals " maintain the air pressure or the valves will fall into the cylinder !!!!! "

also if the cylinders have poor compression then air will leak and this will not work use method #2

method #2 as above but use string or rope to fill cylinder and keep the valves in place if an air source is not handy.....

SOURCE: How do I boost the air conditioning system on my 2001 Olds Aurora

On the caps that screw on the two AC ports you will see a Letter L or H.You need to add to the L(low) side and if you have no caps the hose connector on the can of freon will only fit the low side.Also,most of the time the low fittting is smaller than the high fitting is. When adding have your car running with the AC on and on the max setting.Hope this helps.John.

SOURCE: replacing fuel pump on 1995 oldsmobile aurora

The GM 1995 Aurora repair manual, says to use the access hole under the carpet in the back right corner of the trunk. You are best to buy a new fuel sender locking nut or ring at the dealer for about $8.


Forgot to add this - to relieve the fuel pressure, just use the press the center of valve on the fuel rail (for pressure testing) and a rag to catch the dribble. Really no big deal.

Make sure disconnect the battery cables too

SOURCE: How do you change the brakelight on a 2001

pop the trunk and you should see two screws along the rear taillight assembly. remove the screws and the taillight assembly should pop out. you can then twist the bulb and pop it out along with the harness, put the new bulb in and reverse.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the bolts holding it in against the rear window will be found inside your trunk along the top side of your trunk (get in and look up)

SOURCE: 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Rear Rattle

If it's making a clunk noise when hitting bumps, check the mounting plates and bushings that hold the rear end to the frame. GM made these plates out of aluminum and the bolts that go through the plate and the bushings rot out and the rear end slams against the frame.

Blown head gasket 2001 oldsmobile aurora


IF it was any gasket issue you would be losing coolant or getting air into the coolant, usually causing it to overflow. You have not said any of these things, so I would suspect this is an issue with the fluid not moving through the engine, either because it is blocked, or because the water pump is not moving it.
