The fuel sending unit is probably bad, and that is in the gas tank, which has to be dropped to get at.

Does the 1998 oldsmobile aurora have a bleeder valve for the cooling system?

4.0 'shortstars' do not have a bleeder screw, they are filled at the surge tank which is higher than the coolant anywhere in the engine compartment-fill it to the full level when COLD, and check for pressure in the system when the engine is hot (squeeze the top hose, it should be solid, not easy to callopse). Your surge tank also holds pressure so your cap has to seal tightly with no leak through the overflow tube.

Fuel gauge says full when it isn't

Oldsmobile fuel gauges are notoriously bad (I have an Intrigue and an Aurora) and they get stupid as they get older, not knowing how much gas is in the tank. The sender units are fairly easy to replace (remove the back seat bench, remove the plate covering the fuel pump)-the sender units are not cheap, and you might as well do the fuel pump while you are there-I am going to wait until I need a fuel pump to replace mine, in the mean time I fill my tank no later than 250 miles from the last fill.

Concern about the computer system, little things like the date when set on the system won't hold or when turned off date will change.Alsofuel tank gage after filled will show empty and the gage will bounce...

Hi- The computer 'system' is actually 4 or 5 modules, or controllers tucked into the dash, under the backseat, and in the engine compartment. First, the clock is easily affected by momentary drops in voltage or loose connection at battery. The monster battery installed in the Aurora is expected to run a small city, but have it tested to eliminate it anyway. As far as the fuel guage goes.... notorious for dropping like a rock below 1/2 tank. Guage is not controlled by computer but sends low fuel signal when float bottoms out. I have owned a 95 'Ourora for 8yrs... Please acknowledge this post if helpful. Have more info if needed- Thanks--Ed

Where is th low valve on the 2001 aurora 3.5

The anti freeze goes into the radiator, if the fluid level is really really low, otherwise it goes into the coolant expansion tank which is a black plastic tank on the passenger side of the vehicle, and will say engine coolant on it. You just pop the cap and fill to the line. Leave some room for the liquid to expand when it gets hot.
