Hi, It seems most of your prob could be from worn engine mounts. Have a helper shift from 1st to reverse and see how much the engine moves. [at a fast idle, brake held firm, stand to the side]
This will not cure the prob! Yet My thought is that you will now need to check all the wiring that was involved in this movement.Hope this helps you! Frankster016

How to disable the vats security system on my 2001 oldsmobile alero?

you cant disable it, its a pass key system not a vats system (vats reads a resistance value in the key). The ignition cylinder has a sensor in it that measures a rotating resistance (then translates into a voltage reading) that the bcm reads to let the car know to start. Usually you can try and start the car, then the security light will start flashing - leave the key in the on position for ten minutes until the security light goes out. Then turn the key off, wait, then try and restart - they usually relearn the code after the first 10 minute try. Sometimes it takes three 10 minute cycles.

I have a 2004 oldsmobile alero and I have replaced the fuel pump, relay, spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter and my car starts but dies after a few seconds, what could be making this happen?

Sometimes this is caused by a bad crank position sensor.
Have the codes retrieved (at autozone or any national parts stores for free) and see if that points to anything. If no codes are present, it could be the crank sensor-which a mechanic could test before replacing.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero V6. The car turns over and sometimes will start and run for a few seconds before it cuts out. It also cuts out when I attempt to give it gas while parked after the engine...

when it dies out try shooting a little fuel into the throat of your throttle body or air cleaner and see if it starts back up .. if it does you have a fuel problem like clogged filter or bad pump , thanks Jerry holler if you need more.
