    Try starting off in first gear and going to second manually. If that works you need a tranny shop. If not I will have more questions for you.

I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero and my car was running rough and stalling. Also when the car was shifting, it was making a "thud" sound. My service engine light was on, so I took it to Autozone to run their diagnostic tool. It came back with code P0108 and they advised me to check my vacuum hoses as a possible solution. I looked and found that my air hose running from my throttle body to my map sensor was disconnected. I reconnected the hose and the engine ran normally and didn't make any "thud" sound when shifting. My car is back to normal. So check your hoses. If its still running rough, you may need to replace your map sensor.

99 Alero 4 cyl. CEL flashing, cuts off while stopped or when slow down to turn corners. Recently started backfiring. Drives fine @40 mph. Went to auto zone and got #3 misfire code.


start with changing your plugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor. If it is the type of system that uses coil overs, then replace coil number three as well. A flashing CEL means that you have a misfire that is bad enough to damage your catalytic converter so get on the one before you have to pay bigger money

Mu 1999 Alero has had numerous problems with the security system. It now cut out when I was driving and I can't get it to start! Why? Cost?


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM GOES BAD THE CAR WILL HAVE HARD TO START PROBLEMS OR STALL OUT WHILE DRIVING.CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM COULD BE WORN OUT KEY OR FAULT IN THE BCM CONTROL MODULE.THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO FIX BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO REPROGRAM IT.COST ABOUT $600.00. FIX IT SOON BECAUSE TOO DANGEROUS TO DRIVE AROUND TRAFFIC.BECAUSE FAULTY SECURITY THEFT SYSTEM WILL SHUT OFF FUEL PUMP.THATS VERY DANGEROUS.
