May have head gasket leak. If so will be loosing water, possibly quite slowly. At highway speeds cylinder pressure is higher and so gasket leak more likely. Means gasket damage or loose cylinder head. Can be checked by mechanic. (pressure test and cylinder head bolt tension test)
Less likely alternatives, the spark timing is too advanced or the fuel too poor.

98 Camero overheats when driving slow or stop, ok


You need to get the cooling fan checked,it may need a temperature sensor,fan relay or the fan motor may be burnt out.You can check the fan by running your own power and ground to the plug that comes out of the fan motor,unplug it and put the ground to the black wire and positive power to the other one,if it works then the next step would be to check the fan relay.The most common problem if the fan doesn't work but can be made to work with jumper wires is the temperature sensor,you can check it by unplugging it and jumping the wires in the plug.If the rad fans work then you are down to either the water pump or a plugged radiator,a rad shop should be able to narrow it down for you.

98 Aurora's heated seat not working


Check your fuses first. Then check to see if you have power to the box under seat. It should be about 3x3 and black I think. If you have power to the box change the box. To check use a test light. make sure the key is on and the button is pushed then probe the wires going to the box. Hope this helps you.

I have a 98 olds aurora can i put a 95 aurora engine in the car


I would doubt it.

The 1995 engine runs on the older OBDI system whereas the 1998 runs on the newer OBDII.

98 Olds Aurora A/C won't take a charge and gauges don't move (high or low sides). the pressure is 55 on the low and 120 on high but do not go up or down but compressor is running.


is the electric clutch engaging? if so your compressor is shot. if not, check the fuse panels (under dash and under hood). It could also be a relay located in the fuse block under the hood. Hope this helps.

Low oil pressure


Sounds like you have an internal engine problem. the only way to be sure is to check the oil pressure with an external gauge.

Most shimmies come from tire/wheel/balance combos. Before your dollars go down on 4 tires(assuming you have good tread), rotate tires & if there is a change you can figure out the offending unit
