For some reason aleros have this problem every once in awhile. It might be the security on the alero. What you would have to do is turn the key all the way to accel i believe right before you start it and let it sit for about 13 minutes. affter this the security will recognise itself and start your car

SOURCE: 2002 oldsmobile alero coolant light and fuel

You must always check the coolant hot, expansion will cause a big change in level, how low was it? top it off hot and then drive a few days and recheck the level, I don't think you have an issue here.

How do I get my car to start it won't start. Charged the battery. The cars turns over. I know I needed a thermostat but the car wasn't over heating. Will that cause the car not to star

Obtain an OBD tester from your local Autoparts store. Run the diagnostic from the OBD port underneath the dash and see if you get any codes. Most likely you will and it will point you in the right direction. My bet is an ignition relay has died.

My 2001 sunfire starts fine.but after i drive for about half hour it will stall and wnt start again for half hour.the oil light stays on when this happens.wassup with this?

This happened with my Sunfire. It was the radiator. The engine wasn't cooling, but the sensor wasn't showing that it was overheating. So the engine would start when it was cool, but as soon as it got hot, then if I stopped it wouldn't start again.

It takes about 8-10 times of trying to start up my 2000 mitsubishi galant in the morning(the first start of the day) but during the day when the car is in use and the engine is warm it starts up easily...

Three things might do this. You did'nt say what year model or engine size to the answer is'nt your car specific. The car does run with the check engine light out? If it's running with the light on, you can stop at an auto parts store and they can check to see why the light is on. The coolant temperture senser can make the engine contol computer (think) that the engine is warmer than is is and not shoot enough fuel to keep the engine running good as it's cold . The engine takes less fuel to run hot and theirfore it runs OK. the fuel filter or the fuel pump could not be letting enough fuel pressure to get to the motor and again as the engine warmes up it needs less fuel and runs OK. Sometimes peaple put high octane fuel in an engine that does'nt need it and the high octane fuel burns slower and when the engine is cold it doesn't make as much opresure so it's harder to keep running but as it warme the presures of combustion are higher and the engine runs just fine. If the oil weren't change don the regular time and the oil is old the engine compression might be a lot less than it would be with good oil and the engine may have to warm to have good compression tp run well. If this is the case the oil may need to be changed a few times to get it clean enough to run well.

From what you have said I would try a new set of spark plugs. Why I am saying this is because when you lost your belt you ran off the power in the battery until there wasn't enough power to run the ignition system properly which caused you spark plugs to foul out. When your plugs foul out and get gas soaked they will not fire as good as they should.When you change your plugs turn the motor over with the plugs out to clear the cylinders. Make sure to use anti-seize on the threads of your new plugs to keep them from corroding to the cylinder head this will make it easier to get the plugs out the next time they need to be changed without damaging the threads in the cylinder head.
Thanks for using FixYa hope this answers your question

I have a 94 explorer every time i press the gas it will just loose all of its power and start to backfire if i shut it off and start it bak up it will drive fine for a minit and do it again

Hi, sounds like not enough fuel pressure, I'd check the fuel filter for blockages, if not blocked I'd check for fuel pressure while it's running. You can do a simple check on this at the rubber hoses that connect the fuel ststem on the motor to the body of the car. If you squeeze the hose and get somebody to turn the ignition to on so the red lights come on, but not turn over, the hose should get fuel pressure for a few seconds, making it firmer. If you start the car, and (make sure you don't put your hand in something or burn yourself) squeeze the hose until the engine stops from the fault & if the fuel pressure drops just before the engine stops, it will probably be fuel pump or filter. hope this helps :)
