SOURCE: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora stiff accelerator

I had the same problem until I adjusted (carefully!) the throttle stop. It is a Torx screw that the throttle rests against at stop/idle. Apparently after a while, enough slop develops in the throttle cable & connectors that the throttle actually goes past "TDC" when the engine is turned off and it takes quite a bit of pressure to get it to move, creating a dangerous situation of sudden acceleration.
The adjustment is not enough to affect engine idle speed.

SOURCE: Heated seats not working on


Thanks for using FixYa. Check for a broken wire connecting the heating element. A common cause for the heated seats to not work is a burned heater element. There is an element under the seat cushion cover, and one under the seatback cover. If either has failed, both will not work. Take the seat apart and investigate the problem thoroughly.

Determine if the front seat assembly heat element resistance values are within the specified range.
If the resistance values are NOT within the specified range, install a Front Seat Heater Package between the existing front seat trim cover factory heat elements and the seat cushion and back foam pads.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Both the 3.5 and 4.0 engines use 3 chains.
I think it is 2 upper and one lower.
The 3.5 engine uses 5 gears.

Does the engine of a 2001 oldsmobile aurora 4.0 have to be pulled to replace the timing chain

No you do not need to replace pull the engine. Replacing this chain takes many special tools, I would suggest if you can afford it to avoid trying to do this at home, it is a very difficult job even for a professioanl. You will need a factory service manual to get all set up right.

I need to know how to replace timing chain on olds 3.5 twin cam motor.

Take every thing off the front of engine, until you have access to the timing chain cover . This is a very large task. If you are not a mechanic be careful you have to make sure #1 cylinder is top dead center before removing gears and chain.
