Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero
Off and on when my car warms up, steam comes out from under my hood by my windshield when i come to a stop. It has a sweet smell to it. When i start driving it goes away. What could this be?

Testimonial: "Where do you think it could be leaking from? A hose, radiator. Could it be the thermostat or water pump?"
SOURCE: car won't start when it's cold
Replace the fuel pressure regulator. I took a really close look at mine. The fuel pressure was within spec, but at closer examination I found that it was leaking and also causing that erratic idle from 400-1500 rpms.
My 2000 had all the exact same problems as yours

oil landing on the break calipers or the oil getting burened in the bearing this will eventually go away

In my opinion it could be:
1. Battery discharged
2. Battery connections loose or corroded
3.Air filter element dirty or clogged
4.Fuel injection system dirty or clogged
I would go for this last and check the air intake meter, clean the injectors, etc.

SOURCE: car starts and stops right
Try Clean up the computer ground terminals not the battery terminals, leading from main harness to engine block well below the air filter assembly, bad ground
