if it truly set code for "loose fuel cap" or po455 large leak, then tightening the cap and driving a couple days should reset on its own. if not then get it checked for free at autozone and report back with code # and can help from there. they'll ck for free but are not allowed to reset.

here are step by step instructions on the removal and installation of your fuel tank and fuel pump. please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya today.
Removal & Installation

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Drain the fuel tank.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
  5. While holding the modular fuel sender assembly down, remove the snapring, if equipped or if equipped with a cam lock ring use Fuel Sender Lock Nut Tool J-39765 to press down and rotate the cam lock ring to remove it.

    WARNING If the modular fuel sender assembly is retained by a snapring, it may spring up from its position. When removing the modular fuel sender from the tank, be aware that the reservoir bucket is full of fuel. It must be tipped slightly during removal to avoid damage to the float.
    • Fuel sender assembly
    • External fuel strainer
    • Connector retainer from the wiring harness and the fuel pump
  6. Gently release the tabs on the sides of the fuel sender at the cover assembly. Begin by squeezing the sides of the reservoir and releasing the tab opposite the fuel level sensor. Move clockwise to release the second and third tab in the same manner.
  7. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Fuel pump electrical connection by lifting the cover assembly
    • Baffle and pump assembly from the retainer by rotating the fuel pump baffle counterclockwise
    • Fuel pump outlet by sliding it out of slot
    • Fuel pump outlet seal
To install:
Install or connect the following:
    • Fuel pump outlet with a new seal by sliding it in the reservoir cover slots
    • Fuel pump and baffle assembly onto the reservoir retainer by rotating it clockwise until seated
    • Lower retainer assembly partially into the reservoir by aligning all 3 sleeve tabs and pressing the retainer onto the reservoir making sure all 3 tabs are firmly seated

    NOTE Gently pull on the fuel pump reservoir to assure it is secure. If not secure, replace the entire fuel sender.
    • Connector retainer to the wiring harness and the fuel pump
    • External fuel strainer
    • Snapring, if equipped to the retainer slots while holding the modular fuel sender assembly down or use Fuel Sender Lock Nut Tool J-39765 in order to install the cam lock ring
    • Fuel tank
    • Negative battery cable
  1. Pressurize the fuel system and verify no leaks.

If you have it underneath your back seat, yes. but if not, you've got no choice but to bring the fuel tank down.

First, look for broken or loose wires in the ignition circuit, and the coil wires. Then try fuel filter. Then, ignition module, coil, and timing. It could also be dirty or clogged injectors.

SOURCE: 2000 Alero idles low and dies when stopped.

How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry

My car was almost out of gas I made it to the pump put gas n and then it wouldn't start what can it be its a 2004 alero 2.2 motor help


Gm vehicles generally do not like to be run out of gas. The fuel in the tank helps keep the fuel pump cool. If it was running before you filled it than it is very likely that the pump has gone bad.

A couple of things you can do. Look for the fuel test port on the fuel rail. Remove the plastic cap and press in the schrader valve. there should be a spurt of fuel when it is depressed (use caution as not to get fuel in your eyes). If nothing comes out crank the engine over a couple of times and try again. If nothing still comes out we have confirmed it is a fuel issue.

You will need a helper for this next trick. Get a rubber mallet and smack the center of the fuel tank with the mallet while your helper tries to start the engine. If the engine starts replace the fuel pump.

If you have no fuel pressure and the fuses are good chances are the fuel pump has failed. It is located in the fuel tank. You have to remove the fuel tank to replace it. Replace the fuel filter to.

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going


You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.
