What causes a 2000 Olds Alero to cut off while driving then sometimes crank right away and sometimes it has to sit for a while before it cranks?

A lot of things can cuse it. One is the ignition module. Have it checked out. GoodluckJoe I recently had the same problem,I changed the ignition module,after approx. 165 miles;same thing. My mech. put a computer scanner on it and found the problem to the MAP sensor. So far, no more problem. ignition module was $80.00 MAP sensor was $30.00

If the engine cranks & cranks & cranks before it starts even though it's warmed up already.

If it just cranks and cranks and cranks then it's likely fuel pump. If it died and it won't turn over anymore, likely alternator.

if you put downward pressure on the handle it causes gears to move

No you were driving and it quit.and if it cranks it is turning over. check for spark at the spark plugs and also for fuel pressure at the injector rail.
