My daughter has the same problem and has been in contact with GM. The problem is the system, not the battery or fuel pump etc. GM has no direct fix or parts to repair. The battery disconnect/reconnect works best, its what a dealer will do and they reset the computer even though they find no error. Alero is also is prone to bad motor mounts effecting grounding which can cause the same problem. GM replacement mounts are the same as the problem mounts. Battery reset works here too. Since Olds is gone they won't invest, especially now. carry the battery wrench, drive it till you can't stand it any more and then trade in. Look at the net, its full of the same problem in multiple years of that Alero version. Shame its a nice car.

Most likely it is running too ritch. should be around 7%. Mine did ecactly the same thing and I had several things done . Had the throttle body cleaned and installed a O2 senser.runs great now.
Hope this helps

sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps
