Can a 3.4 impala engine hook up in a Oldsmobile alero?

As Long as Your Alero has a 3.4, You should be good. #1 - You will need to change the timing cover, some of the pulleys are in a different spot. #2 - The motor mounts are different, they will need to be changed over. #3 - The fuel rails connect in a different spot on the engine, you can change them if you want, but it's not necessary. FYI - 3.4 is notorious for Lower Intake Manifold Issues until 2004. The gaskets leak because they are plastic. If you're going to buy a used motor, look for coolant in the oil and around that manifold area first before you buy. The gasket set is about $120, and it takes a few hours to replace them.

What causes 1999 alero to smoke?

Seeing smoke from the tailpipe usually means your engine is leaking something thru a gasket. There are multiple gaskets as well that could be leaking. ou have to determine what fluid id leaking (coolant or oil (or both)). The color ofthe smoke helps tell what type of fluid is leaking. White - coolant / blue/black - oil. Coolant - usually leaks thru the intake gasket which is VERY VERY common on Alero's. They now have a better grade intake gasket available. I just replaced mine on my 99 (under warranty thankfully). It costs around $500. Oil - you could be burning oil from worn piston rings, crankshaft seal, gasket, cracked part or head gasket (where it mixes with coolant). To find out what is leaking - check the level of coolant in the reservoir and monitor the level over the course of a week or two. If it gets lower, you are leaking coolant. Same for oil. Get an oil change and then check the level every week to see if you are gradually getting lower. you can also have a shop do a compression test of the engine. Hope this helps.
