3.5L is the engine size. You need an ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE sensor. This is usually on the engine block near the hose to the radiator

SOURCE: removing the alternator from a 1995 oldsmobile aurora

i found it best to remove radiator first before trying to tackle the alternator... once that is removed then you can easily get to it to unloosen bolt and swap

Where is the cam position sensor on the northstar engine in my 2001 aurora


You need a repair shop to use the code to diagnose the issue

Codes only indicate a fault has been detected & a code set

They don't tell you what is wrong or to replace anything

Component testing will indicate the presence of a problem

Low tire pressure comes on the computer with exp 18 raight after it,what does this mean and how do i fix it


Don't know what "exp 18" means - please clarify.
Tire pressure on the Aurora is done via the wheel speed sensors. Regardless of whether you have proper tire pressure, you must reset the monitor by going to the DIC-->gage-->Tire Pressure and press and hold the reset button.
You should use and ODB-II scanner to check ABS codes to see if any of the wheel speed sensors are reporting errors. Often times the connectors right at the sensor get corroded and cause issues.
