SOURCE: Antifreeze completely leaking out

Well, take a light and a mirror, install new water to your system, then start looking. Once you find the source of the leak, you will know what is the next step.

SOURCE: i keep having to replace

They're not especially prone to failures. I'm suspecting worn struts or springs are excelerating wear in your tie rods if you're having to replace this often. Have a good front end shop look at it. Has car ever been in an accident involving front end?

SOURCE: 2003 alero security light flashing and won't start

The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM. (Theft Deterrent Module) The TDM is what tells your computer that the correct key is being used and that it is "OK" to allow the vehicle to start and run. These 3 parts must be in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending important signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, (normally due to a failing/broken part) the car goes into antitheft mode. The car misinterperates this and thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is NOT getting that signal from YOUR specific key. There is where the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. So basically, if that light is on, your system has some sort of failing part. This can start as an intermittent "no start", to your vehicle not running for days at a time, to the vehicle NEVER starting again. The problem is electrical and computer based, so don't count on an easy reset button, or the problem fixing itself. The hard part is isolating which part is the problem. You can spend a thousand dollars through a mechanic very easily. I have had great luck with bypassing the entire system. This way the problem will never return. It actually CAN'T ever return and can be done yourself at a much cheaper cost. Read through this link very carefully. You'll find alot of information and pictures, along with ways to help you fix this.

SOURCE: My 2001 Oldsmobile Alero won't shift out of park.

Before you go too far, your problem might be as simple as mine was. The gear shift knob had slipped and was not down far enough on the shaft to engage the release mechanism.

Dose the alero have problems after parking on steep downgrade


What kind of problems? Unless the downgrade is practically vertical, I don't see any reason for it to affect the functionality of the vehicle.

open the door. look for securing screws that holds the door panel. usually in the handle bar, in the door opener and the clips at the bottom part of the panel. then the window riser if you have one, needs to come out first too. some scews are covered so look closely.

tnx 4 using fixya,
