Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

I have the same problem with my 1997 Olds Aurora; under a load it misfires. It has new plugs and plug wires. I was told it could be the coil pack or the computer. I think it might be the computer becuse the check engine lite is on and the display says to check air bag and other things. What do you think?

While cranking loud backfire than i restart engine again than it cranks than starts up,this happend about 6 times during 3 months. Car did same thing yesterday, but it just cranks won't start 98 olds...


Not sure if you have a 1996 Cadillac Seville or a 1998 Olds Aurora but I would check the Ignition Coil Packs. One or more of them may need to be replaced. Also if you were working on the car and got the wires plugged onto the wrong coils then the firing order sequence would not be correct and this can cause a misfire or backfire conditon.

Ignition wires cannot rest near the primary wire harness of the ignition module, which can cause electrical interference and a no start condition or a misfire condition

On my friends 1997 Cadillac Seville it was easy to replace all 4 coil packs took less than 30 minutes and made the car run much better. Just make sure to get the firing order right. If necessary find a diagram of the correct firing order for you vehicle.

A good place for mail order auto parts is rockauto.com

I have pasted a picture below of what an ignition coil pack looks like

I just recently recieved a 1997 olds aurora without a manual. how do i push up the seat?


In an Aurora they usually come with Power seats so it would be a black button on the door panel. If for some reason , and I have never seen this, you got one without power seat, there should be a bar to lift up under the seat at you feet.

Popping/backfiring thru intake under accel


Well that car is a obd1. There are many issues that can cause that. A engine that usually misfires or surges under a heavy load or at higher speeds usually indicates it is starved for fuel. I would for sure change the fuel filter if has not been done in last 30,000. I would check fuel pressure and fuel volume. Yes the converter that is clogged causes lack of power, misfire, and poor fuel economy. If the converter is clogged well you still have to fix the problem that caused converter to clog, which is usually an overly rich air/fuel mixture. Most the time it gets clogged due to a bad spark plug, wire, or valve not seating causing raw fuel to enter the exhaust system. I would first check the basics look for any vacuum leaks check the plugs see if they are black and dry (carbon fouled) from to rich fuel mixture, caused by weak ingition, dirty air cleaner, defective fuel pump, e.t.c. or if they white or gray insulator with black or gray brown spots, from low fuel pressure or incorrect timing e.t.c. If you dont find any vacuum leaks bad plugs clogged air cleaner then you need to check the sensors map, mass air flow, etc. I would check your check engine light, when you first turn the key to the on position it should light up, if not than its burnt. Computer codes make diagnosis alot easier. If you can get the codes if it has them let me know. Most exhaust shops will check converter for free. Hope this helps you get a understanding.

Engine Not Responding/ Not getting power


Could be the other coil pack. Be sure to check and clear all codes stored.
