I’ve got an 01 Aurora V6, silver, that is headed to the scrap yard unless someone here wants to save it. The grey interior is in *perfect* shape, it sat in my grandma’s garage between like 2012 and 2016, and she barely drove it before. I drove it for a few years and I’m sick of putting money into it. The engine is falling apart, it needs new frost plugs, it burns a little oil (but more and more every day) and the head gasket just might have bit the dust, I smell coolant in the exhaust. The transmission sounds like a jet engine, I think it’s the torque converter, and it needs a new pressure control solenoid at the very least. The ABS ground is bad, the AC doesn’t engage, and it has the Centering Malfunction codes, so it probably needs a new steering position sensor.
I feel bad throwing a car with as nice an interior as this one has to the junk yard (it’s seriously immaculate) and I lurked here for a long time while I was driving it for your great troubleshooting and repair advice, so I thought I’d throw a note here and see if anyone wanted it before I call.
Pictures can be provided if there’s interest.
EDIT: I’m in Montréal, QC. Make me an offer!
