Congrats on the new aurora purchase!

As for the ABS problem:
Occasional problems on this vehicle are failures of the Antilock Brake System (ABS) Pressure Modulator Valve (PMV) and the ABS Relay. The cost to repair the ABS PMV is estimated at $474.00 for parts and $117.00 for labor. The cost to repair the ABS Relay is estimated at $12.00 for parts and $26.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.

For the oil leak, I'm not too positive of what it could be. We'd need a little more details, etc.

im not too concerned abouit the ABS, its not worth me putting 500 into fixing it.. The oil leak im assuming is one of the crank seals or the oil pan... the pan has some wet spots on it but doesnt look t be leaking all that badly..

sorry about that. we're having some problems with our hosting problems. We were afraid it would drive away new members.. The stock 0-60 time non autobahn is around 8.2 seconds. With autobahn it is closer to 7.8. Quartermile is high 15'* low 16'*. I don't know the exact numbers for the 1/4. It should be significantly faster than a 00' N/A Bonneville though.

$3000 for a 97'. Thats cheap. I wish my car would've been 3K because of the oil leaks.

As one of the ACNA Forum moderators, let me also echo an apology for the forum performance lately. These errors just started popping up recently, and we're still trying to figure out the details. Anywho, congrats on your purchase! You might want to consider running a treatment of Auto-RX through the engine systems, which might even clear up your oil leak. Here'* a thread all about it, if the forum happens to be up next time you're surfing. Here'* another thread from the old Aurora boards as well.
