I have a 99 Alero and the car kept going dead on me until it just quit.

(1999 Oldsmobile Alero)
in Irving, TX on September 14, 2013
The transmission felt like it was slipping before it finally went dead and would not start even though the starter keeps turning. What are the chances of it being the timing belt and is it worth fixing?

Not usually the problem with these motors, first check the basics, confirm it has spark and fuel pressure..
