Resources for the Repair and Maintenance of your Oldsmobile
The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.
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 inside door handle may break causing the door not to open from the inside.
On vehicles equipped with rear air springs, the air compressor may fail causing the rear suspension to sit low.

Oldsmobile Owners' Reviews
ok hears what's going on the transmission in the car will drop out of gear going down the road I have to pull over put the car in park and shut the car off and wait about a minute of two minutes then start the car and it will go back in gear then I can make it about a 1/2 mile sown the road before it does it again. I've talk to mechanics and they've said it sound like a sensor in the transmission of it might just need the filter change. Anyone have an idea of what it might be?
Bought car 2 months ago... Love the car... gas mileage hyw 26 mpg. lots of power.... handles super... price new was $41000.00 ... alternator went out and was a bit of a hassle... changed serpentine belt at the same time, that was a bit of a hassle also... the best part is that a lot of generous people put information on the internet to make the job a lot easier. Thanks to all of them.
I bought my 2000 Olds Alero in 2008 used. Have had nothing but problems with it. When i bought it with 32000 miles it needed the engine replaced (which the dealer did). I drove it for about a yr and had to replace the intake gasket. Fixed that drove fine for another year and the engine blew. I had to replace it. (not cheap) I drove it for 9 months and it started overheating and blowing cold air when the heater is on. I have replaced everything under the hood except for the alternator. Now it just sits in my driveway not being driven as it overheats and does not blow hot air. I can't even get anyone to buy it due to the problems it has and I am NOT putting a 3rd engine in the car and it doesn't even have 100,000 miles on it. Worst car I ever owned will NEVER buy another one.
