Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero
Our alero has been having "issues" for 3 years leaving us stranded on several occassions. It drives just fine then all of a sudden it won't start even though it turns over fine. We have it towed (not cheap) to a garage. As soon as a mechanic tries to asses the problem it starts fine. The mechanics say they can't fix what isn't broken and suggest that we drive it until it won't work and bring it back. ARRRGH!!!!! My car is playing tricks on me and laughing all the way to the shop. Side notes: The car does crank over fine, just won't fire. We just noticed that the security light is flashing when it won't start. There is also some possible related computer problem in that the car won't run quite right (sluggish ect.) until three warning light come on; service engine, abs barkes, and trac off. Then it's fine.
No matter what the mechanic says have the ignition module changed . i had the same problem it only will act up when it gets hot . try this.
