Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
I have a 2000 Alero that has trouble starting. At first I thought it was bad gas, so I drove it empty, refilled, added heat and drove another 20 or so miles to clear it. What happens is the engine barely starts, idles rough, the dash lights flicker, and the engine stalls. Sometimes the engine starts up and runs fine. Sometimes the engine starts and different lights will stay on. I was driving down the highway and the engine hiccupped, the lights all popped on then turned off and the engine ran fine afterwards. I had the fuel pump tested and it was fine. My guess is an ignition switch. Just wondering if anyone else had similiar prob. Thanks in advance.
I had this problem with my 1999 alero i took it apart and investigated it myself because i have been a mechanic for 25 years now but i had to replace the starter relay the whole ignition system and believe it or not new valves. After I replaced all of those my alero drove better then eer and the lights never went back on or any of the other lights....
