2004 Oldsmobile Alero Problems
The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.
The front window sash brackets may break causing the window to come off track. Our technicians tell us that new brackets are available and can be installed on the old window glass if it is not damaged.
The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

2004 Oldsmobile Alero Reviews
Good afternoon, my name is Leticia Anaya I'm from Leominster MA. I have a car Oldsmobile Alero 2004 since that year. It was used at the time I purcharse it. I began to have problem since them with the heating system I took it be seen they don't see the problem. In the summer when the wheather is hot, the car over heat. I checked and change the themot. the problem appear the same. Now, I have been problem with the hazard turn signal flasher, and the signal lights. I had to change the gas tank and the breaks I have to be changing it every often. I love my car I don't want to change, but I will like to have some support from your company of Oldmobile replace all this defect that my car has. Is a good car for summer and for winter only this few things needs to be fix in order for my car can in better shape. I'm hopping that you can be able to assist me with these issues. Thank you.
I love this car! It is my very first car I have ever had. I am the 2nd owner to it. Besides normal wear n tear, I have had to replace a water pump, thermostat housing (twice, they should make this a metal part.) Alternator, Horn, And now I am working on the fuel pump. I got the car at 78,000 miles. Now it's at 186K. I have had her for 6 years. I have done all the work to this car myself, I don't trust shops.
I did notice these cars do have a issue with the "Trac Off" "ABS" lights, Which is highly annoying when those are the ONLY dummy lights that are coming on. They also have a problem with the windows coming out of the brackets.
They are great cars, ONLY if you take CARE of it, like any car. I even delivered pizza for almost 2 years in this car. Just change oil, do tune ups, brakes, etc...all the normal stuff in a timely manner and you shouldn't have to many "big money" problems.
Treat your car with respect, and she will take you where ever you want to go. I love my Alero!! I will most likely get another in the future. But I really want to keep the one I got, I love it that much! I can't let this car go! They say "Drive it till the wheels fall off" And I say back to that "Put new wheels on and keep on rolling!" They are very durable cars!!
After 65,000 miles (2nd owner), had to replace front brake pads & rotors, throttle body, fuel filter; have injectors cleaned; and cooling system flushed. Only slight problem remaining is airbag cover on passenger side is starting to separate from dash. Also, I've had seal around windshield come off, but nothing some epoxy can't fix. Overall though, the car has held up extremely well.
