In the "normal" position, the transaxle shifts at lower engine speeds. The "power" position will give you better acceleration and cost you extra at the gas pump. With a check engine light coming on, yes you need to have things checked out.

You have a bad Parking brake, Brake, or Neutral safety switch. Not the end of the world on this one.

SOURCE: Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

SOURCE: ABS, brake, trac control, service engine soon light came.

check the wiring harness, on both front wheels, it plugs into the wheel bearings, and runs along the lower control arm, sometimes it gets damaged

You need to get the fault codes read to determine where the problem is that set the SES light. Autozone will scan your car at no charge. At some point you will need to get a mechanic involved to further diagnose the codes.

1998 olds aurora need to locate shift release solinoid


If you have brake lights, that switch is OK. The shifter release solenoid is built into the shifter. The whole shifter has to be replaced. It could be the wiring. Usually not though. Most times t is that high dollar shifter.

Have a 97 Old Aurora that was only going in reverse. Turned off car to see if it would reset but now will not crank. I have it in park but can push the car. What type of transmission fluid does it take...


I believe the root of the problem is in the shifter linkage / cable. The shifter is in reverse regardless of where you put it. . Moving the shifter is not moving the linkage at the transmission end. That would explain the no crank issue as well. You can push a car in any gear , but not if it really is in park.

My 97 Olds aurora cuts off while driving. It's done it 3 times in 1 week. It doesn't stall when i start it back it up. I changed my alternator recently and i bought a new battery. Any ideas?


It could be the Ignition Switch. If, when it cuts off, you notice your gages, etc go off, then you are losing ignition power. If not, then maybe I would look at the crankshaft position sensor, etc. This should through some sort of code though.

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.
