Congrat Jim! Feel free to ask me any Aurora questions since my last ride was a 96 Aurora, had for 3 years and racked up 50K on her.

The oil leak thing is mostly on the 4.6'* not the Aurora'* 4.0. The leask had to do with worn cyclinder rings. Not really bad for the engine, the car just burns some oil. Even new the Northstar is designed to burn a little oil, that'* why it take 7.5 Qts of Oil. I always watched the jiffy lube person, make sure they put in 7.5, I've caught them only putting in 5 qts more than once.

Enjoy the ride! There'* good group of Aurora people at http://townhall.edmunds.com under olds, than aurora. Sign up there and mention me, they'll love you then!

When your ready for mods, let me know. If you plan on keeping it, you gotta get the wood dash kit, looks sooooo nice!

Check out my old site for more Aurora stuff http://www.cardomain.com/id/800wattaurora

Thanks for the good info Taylor, the good news is the Rora, has been certified, safetied and emissions tested. All I have to do is hand over a cheque for the balance owing and sign the ownership papers.

Oh Taylor...one question (since no one cars about my thread in Audio ) Did your Aurora have the trunk mounted CD changer? When I open the slide gate, the cartridge does not like to pop out. How easy is it to "unstuck" the cartridge. I didn't want to rip off the faceplate considering I didn't own the car at the time
