Answer . Totally depends on engine. If you dont see them right off, your are most likely located under the big valve cover similar to the hemi engines of Chrysler..
When mine went out the dealer replaced it...evidently it was included in the warranty...you can also call a GM dealer and talk to the part or garage and they can tell you how to do it..it should also be in the owners manual. To replace the foglight, remove the headlight by pulling on two tabs strai…ght up. Then wiggle the headlight towards the front of the car. Directly below the where the headlight was is the foglight. Twist about a 1/4 turn and pull directly out. Be careful not to touch the new bulb. ( Full Answer )

on a 2002 olds alero 2.2 4 cylinder ecotec the spark plugs are located on top of the intake, under the cover that gives the engine size,it is possible that yours may also be located under this cover. All you have to do is remove the four bolts on top of the cover and your plugs will be under there.
Raise the rear of the car using and use jackstands or car ramps (More effective and secure). It is located behind the gas tank.
Answer . \nThere is no dip stick for the transmission. If you suspect any tranny problems it needs to be checked out by a mechanic.. Answer . \ni dont know
Answer . I have changed two of them. Remove the caliper, brake disc and then the large nut at the wheel and then you will have to use a small sledge to pound the the thing that the nut is threaded onto back and then loosen the bolts to the hub
Answer . Alright- first of all, this only applies to the 2.2 litre EcoTec engine. I would imagine that the V6 isn't all that different, but I personally own an 03 Alero with a 2.2, so here we go.... NOTE: If you plan on dumping your oil onto the ground, please for the love of Pete go to Jiffy Lu…be or a dealer instead. Or buy an oil drain pan at Wal-Mart, then take the oil to just about any facility that changes oil. Used engine oil is among the more disatrously nasty chemicals you will ever (realistically) be exposed to. It is classified as hazardous waste and is so full of carcinogenic, acidic combustion by-products that I personally wear nitrile gloves when I do oil changes. If you get used motor oil on your skin, wipe it immediately, and wash the area with Dawn as soon as possible.. That said, this question was for "draining the oil" and not "changing the oil" so that is baffling in itself. If you know enough to "change" the oil except for the part about draining it, that doesn't make sense to me. Anyway, you'll need:. oil drain pan. nitrile, latex, or vinyl gloves (thin ones). 15mm socket with a ratchet of decent length (at least 10") for leverage. paper towels within reach. Warm the engine for about 4 minutes, idling. Really hot oil will gush out like water, and can make you have a terrible day. Cold oil will take forever to drain. Warm is good. If you're not too thick in the middle, you can scoot under the vehicle from behind the right front tire- turn the wheels fully to the LEFT and it will give you decent access to the bolt, plus you'll be looking right at it if you go in that way. If you're too chunky to slide under the car, see if you can use a depression to help: either a rain gutter (sluice-type, like a section of concrete pipe) or even a smallish ditch. If you drive over the depression so that your front tires are just past it, then turn your wheels left, the depression should be (obviously) right behind your tires. That is right where you slide under the car, so try that. Using a depression negates the need for ramps or jacks, is safer and cheaper, and keeps your car level.. There are two obvious "pans" between the frame rails on the Alero. The huge one is the transmission, so leave that one alone. The smaller, rougher one is the oil pan, and the drain bolt is on the side of the pan that faces the rear of the car. Use either the ratchet or a 15mm box-end wrench to break the drain bolt loose, then use your fingers to unscrew it. While unscrewing it, keep some force on the bolt (push it back in) so that when the bolt releases itself it won't just fall out- by holding pressure on it, YOU control where and how the drain bolt flies. You'll feel it once it breaks free. When you quickly move the drain bolt to the side, the oil will not drop straight down- the hole points toward the rear of the car, so it will fountain in that direction. Ensure your drain pan is positioned to intercept the stream, but be ready to reposition it rapidly if you miscalculated. That is another reason to hold on to the drain bolt: many times when my bolt has fallen into the drain pan, I have had the great fortune to get globbed with oil as the bolt fell directly under the drain stream and the oil hit that bolt and shot out in all directions. HOLD ON TO YOUR DRAIN BOLT! At this point you can remove the oil filter cover (on top of the engine- black plastic, blah blah blah) and also remove the oil filler cap.. The drain bolt does not require a new crush washer since the bolt casting employs a rubber seal. Wipe this bolt carefully before you reinstall it, and wipe the surface of the oil pan where the bolt will touch.. Alright- since this was about "how to drain the oil" I guess I won't go into all the other tricks and wonderful tips involved in an entire oil change, but I'll look elsewhere on these forums and see if I can address that somewhere else.. Good luck, be cool, and don't over-tighten these bolts! 5 quarts of 5W-30, by the way :). -Grand ( Full Answer )
Go to an Oldsmobile dealer with your proof of ownership or title and they can make you one using the vehicle ID numbers. I think it's under $25.00 cost. I just went to a Buick-Chevy-GMC dealer with my registration with VIN and had one made for $9. Cost seemed a bit steep, but multiple hardware s…tores couldn't make one that worked. ( Full Answer )
Short Version: below the throttle body, on the motor, along the coolant path from the engine to the radiator. Long version: I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero (V-6). On my car, the top radiator hose is on the left (facing the car with the hood up, naturally) and goes back toward the motor. (For those w…ho do not know what they are looking for, it is a large hose at least 12 inches or longer, it is usually black, and 2-2.5 inches in diameter, and the only other black, large hose nearby to confuse it with is the air intake going from a large black box, aka the air filter housing, to the throttle body). In this cooling system, coolant flows from the motor (after absorbing heat from the motor) to the radiator (just behind the grill) and flows downward through the radiator to the bottom hose (gravity goes down--this bottom hose looks the same as the top hose, but different location) where it runs back towards the motor to collect more heat. The thermostat doesn't actually measure the temperature of the coolant the way the "coolant temperature sensor" does, it is merely a pressure valve that will open with pressure (from hot coolant running through it) and close from a spring (when the coolant is not hot enough, and is therefore not pressurized enough to overcome the spring force of the thermostat valve.) This valve/thermostat is for the sole purpose of regulating coolant temperature; it does this by allowing hot coolant to go to the radiator and cool off, but if your motor is not hot, or up to its optimal operating temperature (for example, when you first turn on the car), the thermostat should recycle the coolant back through the motor, bypassing the radiator, to allow it to heat up. So, it is located along the flow of coolant after the motor, but before the radiator, and to find it you just need to follow this hose back (away from you and the radiator or grill) to where it ends. This top hose ends with a hose clamp holding it onto a metal pipe. Follow this pipe back towards the motor, and right at that junction is the thermostat housing. In order to get it off for maintenance (in my experience) you'll have to get a few other parts out of your way. 1. drain coolant (about two quarts +/-) so it is below the level you'll be removing parts from 2. remove the air intake hose and filter housing 3. if you can, with the right tools, reach between the throttle body and the exhaust heat-shield to get to the bolts that mount the thermostat housing to the motor. If not, the exhaust heat-shield and/or throttle body will have to be removed as well because they are very in the way of any tools you'd need to reach the bolts. hope this helps ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nit is inside the thermostat housing, which is where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. the metal that the hose clamps to is the housing.
Answer . \nyou will have to buy a new one and cut off old one and have some one weld it back on if there is no bolt that hold it on most have to be cut and welded back on you might have to got to a muffler shop to have it instaled
You have to remove the gas tank....after that's done, remove the send unit from the top of the tank ans pull it straight out. The pump is on the bottom of that.Try to empty your tank first. It is a lot easier and safer.
If you are referring to the AC system, then it is R-34,which you can pick up at most parts stores. One can will do but you will need one with a valve. Also, when you go to put it into the line, make sure it is the low pressure line so it ingests the refrigerant.
sorry it's old so i don't know but it's either Toyota, Lamborghini or neither ----------->made by GMC
Answer . dependsd upon what type of engine but they are usually very visible they are at the top of engine with small elect wire attached to each one not big wires like the sparkplugs
Depending on the engine size, it is either under the hood, on the passenger side firewall, or under the dash. More Auto Repair Help at: www.JustAutoRepair.com
passenger side either to the left of the feet when sitting or just above the feet
As with any car, low coolant will cause this car to overheat. Common areas of coolant lose are the water pump or intake manifold gaskets. If the coolant is full, then another common problem is blown headgaskets- especially the rear head. A blown headgasket introduced compression into the cooling sys…tem causing air pocket / bubbles. This will cause an overheat.- TechJK. ( Full Answer )
The answer is no. No car can run properly on E-85 unless it was buitl to do so. Running a cas on E-85 that was not buitl to do so will cause all kinds of problems from check engine light, poor acceleration, poor idle, bad ecomomy, and possible fuel system component damage.- TechJK.
The recommended oil for an Oldsmobile Alero is SAE 5W-30 oil. Ifyou live in a state that does not get freezing temperatures, 10W-30is acceptable.
there is no dip stick for the trans on either the 2.4 or the 3400.
A 2002 Oldsmobile Alero is able to hold 14.1 gallons of gasoline.Its gas mileage is around 21-25 miles per gallon.
The hazzard light switch on the dash to the right of the speedometer is also the turn signal flasher. This is a common part to fail if intermittant turn signal operation. - TechJK.
ESL is not a term i am familiar with, and i have worked for Oldsmobile since 1991 until they went out of business in the early 2000's.- techJK.
Some of the 2000 models have a PCV valve on the back of the valvecover. The other models do not have a PCV valve, but use an oil/airseparator instead.
The final year for production for the Oldsmobile Alero was 2004.The exact weight of the General Motors vehicle depends on year andoption groups. The 2004 Alero had a curb weight of 2996-pounds.
In my opinion, the engine is awesome but the electronics in the car suck. The speakers always go out and half the time the dash lights are on. All the window regulators have gone out on mine. But after you replace all that stock crap, the car is amazing. In my opinion, the car is unbelievable. I hav…e a 2002 Olds Alero with 240,000 miles on it. No motor or trans-axel issues. Have a couple of dummy lights lit up and only had to perform normal maintenance repairs on the car. ( Full Answer )
There is no plug. GM in their infinite wisdom decided we don't need to change our coolant in the rad. Therefore to do this you must remove the lower rad hose to drain the coolant. Nice move GM. And you wonder why no one wants your cars anymore. All for the cost of a simple drain spigot.
It doesn't matter what car you drive; the tire pressure specifications are in the realm of the tire manufacturers...take a close look at the sidewalls of the tires on your car...in the moulded in 'fine print' you will find the PSI recommended by the mfg. Using this as your guide; you will optimize t…he 'life' of your tires (and your overall gas milage). ( Full Answer )
Many things can cause the car to overheat.. 1. Low coolant caused by leaking hoses, water pump, intake manifold on v6 engine.. 2. Bad headgasket on v6 engine causing coolant to overflow out of the reservoir jug.. 3. Stuck thermostat. - TechJK. ETC..
This can be caused by a number of things. . A shortage of coolant . faulty thermostat . faulty radiator cap . a blocked radiator . faulty water pump . faulty fan . leaky hoses . cracked head or block.

Check the knob on the dash that spins from cold to hot. Pull it off, and reposition it so that it will turn farther to the right...i am unsure why this is, but it seems to have 2 positions, one that will allow cool air on the left and cold air on the right. If you roate it 180 degrees and put it bac…k on the dash you get warm air on the left and hot air on the right. Thanks to General Mortors for another sneaky method to get us into the dealer for costly repairs that are unnecessary. ( Full Answer )

\nyes it does i have a 2003 olds-mobile alero v6 sedan and the governor stops the car at 110mph
That would depend on the size of the engine as well as if you are looking to replace the upstream sensor or downstream. Upstream simply means its in the exhaust system BEFORE the catalytic converter while downstream means that it is located after the converter. You need to have someone pull the DTC'…s, diagnostic trouble codes, from the ECM before you start replacing sensors. The code(s) you pull from that should point you in the right direction to which sensor is giving you a SES light or Check Engine light. I just recently pulled code P0420 on a 2000 Alero with the Quad4 engine. The code simply stated that the output on sensor 1 bank 1 was below threshold. I replaced the sensor and now everything is kosher. Some instances arent that lucky. Good luck with whatever you determine the cause is. Dale ( Full Answer )
I have a 2003 and thus far it has 140,000 miles on it and still runs great. I have an '02 with 120,000 miles with no problems beyond some cheap GM interior parts. commuter car everyday, still runs great. I have an 02 Alero Sedan that has over 240,000 miles on it. Still runs great. Routine repairs o…nly. No problems with the trans-axel or motor. I change the oil every 3000 miles and it might be a 1/2 quart low when its changed. I'm very curious how long this car will keep going. My college age daughter drives the car and she known to have a heavy foot. ( Full Answer )
The most common "no start" problem for this car is very common in all GM vehicles of this era, and has to do w/ the "passlock" ignition lock.Usually, if this is the problem, the car will crank & crank, but won't catch, and your security light will be on. One way to diagnose this problem is, when it …happens, leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing(it will either stay on solid or go off altogether) this could take anywhere from 5-10 minutes. When it stops flashing, turn the key OFF and then try to start it again, it should start right up! Be warned! This will only work so many times before the car will ultimately leave you stranded. Replace the ignition lock, problem solved! ( Full Answer )
There are many gaskets on any car engine. If you are asking about head gaskets, they are between the cylinder head(s) and the engine block. The cylinder head is under the valve cover. --------------
