If it is turning over (at a normal rate) but not starting you have either a fuel or an ignition prob. If it is turning over slowly, you have a battery low fault or a bad earth to your engine from the chassis.

SOURCE: how do i replace crank sensor on 2000 olds alero 3.4 and where is it located

It depends on which crank sensor you are wanting to replace. There are two of them. The 24X sensor is located behind the front crankshaft pully and the crank pully must be removed to change it. The 7X sensor is located in the engine block on the right bank (firewall side) near the rear of the engine. This one simply pulls out of the block after disconnecting the electrical connector and removing the single bolt that holds it.

2000 olds alero cranks then makes a metal grinding sound and won't start


You need to have your flywheel: replaced.Your starter motor engages against the fly wheel at the back of the motor. Every time your motor stops it tends to be in the same few positions (just the way things work) so there is more stress on some parts of your fly wheel than others. Because of this the teeth wear out on the fly wheel which means the starter can correctly engage on the fly wheel which is the grinding noise.

Ok so I bought a 94 Chrysler concorde... the guy told me you have to turn the key multiple times before it starts...the starter doesn't kick in until basically it wants to...lol he said the ignition...


You may be right. Sometimes a starter test doesn't reveal everything. But before you pull the starter, do this quick test. It should confirm if problem is the starter or the ignition switch. When the car won't crank over, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid (on the starter), and check if it has power when key is held in crank position. You need a helper to hold the key in crank. If the wire has power (use a testlight or meter to check for power), and the starter won't crank, pull the starter off for testing or replacement. But if there is no power on the wire when key is held in crank, then it confirms that power is not being transmitted from the switch to the starter. Not to say for sure it is the switch, could also be another part in the path from switch to solenoid (like the neutral safety switch). But more common for the ignition switch to go out first. Either replace the switch or continue testing your start circuit. Post back with results or for further help. Good luck.

I have an 2001 oldsmobile alero that won't turn


Hi,

The first thing you should do, is check for battery power and ensure your instrument cluster lights come on when you turn your key to ON.

It's possible you have an issue with your starter motor, ignition switch or even the crank/cam sensor.

Have your diagnostic codes read by your local dealership or a mobile auto electrician, as this should immediately identify where the problem lies.

I just replaced the starter in my 2000 olds alero and now it wont start it keep flashing securty....it thinks it is benig stolen....how can I fix this


Most likely you replaced the starter because it wouldn't crank over. If this is correct and the security light was flashing before replacing the starter, then most likely you have a problem with the pass-lock system. If your ignition cylinder is located in the dashboard, you will need to remove it and replace the passlock housing.
