Oldsmobile Alero QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Installed water pump and thermostat now car idles fast and tries to die when you stop also sounds rough when idling. Could i have the timing off? It didn't sound this way before,although it would idle rough at stop lights but never die.The only time it did was when it over heated and it shut itself down.
Replaced fuel pump 2 days before this started.
Lever is loose. Has worked intermittently. Steering wheel is now stuck in fully upright position. Is this a relatively easy home fix? If so, how?
The idle on my car is odd. When I'm idling, I can actually see the RPM gauge shoot up sometimes like I reved the car, but I did not. I know it needs a tune up, but my husband says this is not caused by that. Any ideas what is happening or what could be done to fix it? Is this normal for this car?
The blinker switch randomly makes the clicking noise (like when you have signaled to turn) while driving. It sometimes happens often, and sometimes I might go a few days without hearing it. The blinker was randomly not working so my repair shop replaced the blinker switch. Now, the blinker is working fine, but we still hear the random clicking, so it doesn't appear to be the actual blinker switch. Any idea what to do?
The beep that you hear when you open the door or try to get out of the car with the keys left in comes on when I back up. Sometimes, it happens randomly when I'm driving, like when I turn. Does anybody have any idea what could be causing this? Thanks.
I've noticed that my gas mileage has gone down. What can I do to make it better?
I have added more coolant but the car keeps overheating.
The car shakes while idling or at slow speeds. It gets better at higher speeds.
Turns of the key for it to start
i just need to know what's wrong asap and how much to fix it
When I switch from park to drive, it revs up like I am in park, my car moves a little bit when I do it but I do not want to blow up my engine, what could it be?
Car was fine till battery was change tryed 10mint fuel filter new fuel pump does turn on going crazy what now
Just check and want to know how much it will cost and can you check my engine and change my oil, check vechicle light and trac light is on I have brand new breaks on my car
i just need the cost of the work that is needing to be done to the named veh.
It starts up good it powers up I can drive it but when it gets really hot out it starts making that ticking noise
Seemed to lose power and died. The service engine soon and the trac off light both came on. The car did restart but when I turned the air on it stalled and died again. Both lights also stayed on. Please help.
If I give it gas it will start and as long as I keep my foot on the gas pedal it will continue running but soon as I take my foot off the pedal it cuts off.
When I bought the car from the small car lot, the man hooked up an expensive looking gadget and charged the a/c. It worked for a few weeks and then just stopped cooling. The fan blows hot air and I cannot feel or hear the a/c pump engage.
2.2 4cyl auto overdrive
Went to gas station half less than 1/4 tank pump will only put in a dollar worth of fuel. Gas is sitting in filler tube.
I was told it could be the gasket. I was also told that it could be the water pump cuz the coolant ain't pumping through when the car is turned on. I don't wanna be spending money on the wrong problem so I need a lititle information before doing so also I live pretty far from a auto shop so I really can't drive it anywhere til I find out what's wrong with it.
Car is over heating can't find leak??
Noise doesn't happen from start up, only when I start driving, progressively speeds up with acceleration. Replaced cv half shaft, bearings are good, clicking is same as driving and thru corners..consistent. more pronounced in the cab of the vehicle..sounds like it's coming from the tranny..my occasional ocd is driving me mildly crazy not knowing..any info would be greatly appreciated.
This was the first time the horn went on by itself.
The turn signals have not been working consistently for months.
Shaking ever since I've had it which as been about 2-3 years and has 149,745 miles on it and 1 1/2-2 months ago it started making slight clanking noises when engine is reved or while driving.
