1996 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 V8 from North America
Amazing I wish they were still made
My alternator went, but it was my fault; tpo big of stereo system.
My oil pan went because I went over a bump too hard, but I shut the engine down in time.
Amazing power. Bullet proof engine. Tranny no problems yet. Looks good.
Only lost twice at the drag strip.
At high miles if taken care of, it's one of the best cars I've seen. I don't get how people have so many problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hello, I'm buying a 1995 Aurora, and the person said that there is a PIN HOLE in the oil pan. Do you think it is worth it to buy it, or should I pass? Please, I would love to hear about what you have to say. The car is in great shape, it only has 179,000km on it.

A "pin hole" in the oil pan? Even a "pin hole" can let out a lot of oil. It also sounds very unlikely to me that it would be the oil pan itself that was leaking. Perhaps the oil pan gasket is the issue. Still I wouldn't recommend it if it's leaking oil. That can start to get expensive if you can't find the problem. It could be the oil pan gasket, head gasket, rear main seal, front main seal, any of them.
