Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Aurora - The DIC says Low engine coolant; and also says check gas cap. Have added coolant and checked gas cap always - still getting the messages. Also when starting the car, the DIC goes blank for about a minute. Is this a fuse problem or a sensor issue?? How about a sticky gas pedal? What fix is there for that? Doesn't do it all the time, just in hot weather which living in NV is almost 9 mos of the year. Thanks

Make sure the coolant is not leaking. If it's not, then clear the codes with a scanner. Spray some wd40 on the gas pedal cable assembely under the hood.

You could have a faulty radiator cap not allowing coolant to flow to the over flow reservoir. Also check where the hose at the radiator cap connects to the over flow hose as I've seen these get clogged up and cause problems. If you have a faulty thermostat this could also cause a vapor lock in the cooling system and would be apparent if the top radiator hose is collapsed.

Low engine coolant


Check the coolant level and make sure it is correct. Then make sure the cap is closed properly on the overflow container. Even if its full, if the lid is not tight, it can read low.

On the Owner's Manual there's a procedure you have to follow to bleed the air in the cooling system, until you bleed the system for air, the low coolant light will come on every time.

The process is rather simple and quick, all you need is a flat head screw driver.

DO NOT OPEN THE COOLING SYSTEM WHEN HOT.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Leaking antifreeze


Check your hoses entering your block and radiator. you may need to bring your vehicle into a garage and ask for a "Pressure Test" this will indicate if you have a crack or leak.
Good Luck.

Car dying while driving, DIC readouts incorrect


Start out by checking the connections on your battery and the connection next to the fuse block under the hood.
It is possible that this is a bad ignition switch, however if that were the case you would not see the DIC setting reset. DIC setting reset is indicative of a total power loss.

Where is th low valve on the 2001 aurora 3.5


The anti freeze goes into the radiator, if the fluid level is really really low, otherwise it goes into the coolant expansion tank which is a black plastic tank on the passenger side of the vehicle, and will say engine coolant on it. You just pop the cap and fill to the line. Leave some room for the liquid to expand when it gets hot.
