if the engine turns over, but just doesn't start, you need to do some checking, check for spark from the coil, or coil packs, if that checks out ok, have the crank and cam shaft position sensors checked, timing belt, computor. I know it's a pain, but I have worked on cars for 40 years, something like this you have to use process of elimination, without testing, you could replace things you don't need. ( expensive) good luck).

In order to replace the fuel pump u must remove the gas tank, the fuel pump is located inside the tank. U are going to need to get the car at least 3 feet in the air, u will need a good 2 1/2 ton hydraulic floor jack, 4 good safety stands and common hand tools, also a brass drift to release fuel pump module retainner ring on top of tank, don't use steel one spark and u are up in smoke.

I need to know where the fuel pump is on a 2003 oldsmoblie alero


It is in the gas tank so you must disconnect the fuel lines and if the tank has alot of gas then it may be better to drain some of it out through the disconnected fuel lines because it will be heavy. Take the straps loose from the tank and you will probably need at least one other person helping lower the tank out from under the car and you will find the fuel pump on top of the tank where you can remove it, just remember what you take loose so you can connect everything back the same way.
