The front differential is the transmission.This is checked when the engine is at normal operating temperature with the vehicle running in park.Remove the dip stick and add til it gets to the full hot mark.This takes Dextron 3 automatic trans.fluid.

    It is probably a bad hub bearing.

  • Salvador Quintanilla Nov 19, 2009

    While you have it up on stands take you hands and grab the front wheel on top and bottom and see if it moves when you push in and out with your hands.Both front wheels.If there is any movement you have a bad hub bearing.Another thing you can do is when driving if the noise changes when you turn left or right.Then it is a bearing.

I backed into a pole my 2001 oldsmobile aurora is leaking transmission fluid badly how can i fix this?

The Aurora is a front wheel drive vehicle and there is absolutely no direct connection between the back bumper and the front transaxle. Take the car to a transmission shop for a free inspection. Hopefully all you need are new seals.

Blown head gasket 2001 oldsmobile aurora

IF it was any gasket issue you would be losing coolant or getting air into the coolant, usually causing it to overflow. You have not said any of these things, so I would suspect this is an issue with the fluid not moving through the engine, either because it is blocked, or because the water pump is not moving it.

2001 olds aurora running hot and i noticed fluid coming from little black box by engine, looks like antifreeze, whats deal with this?

I assume the "little black box" referred to is the front fuse panel. Next to it, towards the windshield is the coolant overflow canister. At the base of these there is a metal coolant line that is clamped to the car body. After years of vibration this starts to leak. Not too difficult to replace.
