Have been absent for a while. Recently moved to NE Atlanta Georgia. The Aurora loved the trip. Now has over 103K miles. However, my son is not a friend of this orphan. He is a GM Tech at a local dealership:
Maintenance of New brakes and rotors - all now are ok, now normal, however, new GM rotors need to be turned (!)
Leak in radiator, plastic seam bad, ok replaced. new OEM cap, too.
Seat motor bad, no, not seat motor, but unlubed gear-works in seat - ignore for now...
No #2 horn, no, not horn, is connection in firewall connector somewhere.
Oil change, ok.
AC compressor clutch - no, better to do whole compressor...... AAARGH!
Thanks to my Googling (to HERE!), I found the high pressure switch is removable, and the GM belt install procedure is incomplete. Finally got that corrected. Son says buy a Silverado.....!
Now found harmonic balancer is deteriorated and may be have caused the clutch failure - it is wobbling. Ordered 2 OEM GM parts that came in cracked, no packing material in box, they were chipped.
Now have aftermarket balalncer, replacing on Saturday. Any tips!? Son is wary on this.....
Still love the Aurora, a unique testament to American ingenuity - and marketing!
