Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
My Alero boggs down on occasion. I replaced the plugs and boots. I also replaced the air filter. The problem is still there. I think that I need to replace the feul filter. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, did a new feul filter fix the problem?
The way to erase the code is either take it to a local repair shop and they can hook it up to a computer and erase it, or most major parts stores have one to borrow. You can take it and use it in the parking lot to read/erase codes. Some parts stores will do it for you and some won't. It just depends.
You should have an EGR, you can take it off and clean it with some carb/choke cleaner then let it dry and then put it back on. Then if that fixes it you know you will need to replace an EGR soon. Usually EGR valves are located on the top of the motor. They have kind of a disk shaped thing on top of them. A pic is below of what yours should look similar to (assuming you have the 6-cyl motor.) The part will be approx $90 to purchase from a parts store. (Of course, prices will vary)
This is your EGR valve.
Any questions, please ask!!! Thanks and please rate!!!
