Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero
Recently while we were driving the car just died unexpectantly. then it wont start back up. I have pulled the car back to my house and have been trying to get it started again. I noticed that the starter was spinning but not engaging. So I replaced the starter, now it will turn the motor, but still not start. battery seems to be fine, have checked all connections. I am aware of the passlock problem but that isnt it this time, I have noticed that the security light doesnt stay on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
You will have to see if you have spark and gas first of all. When you first turn the key to "on", you should be able to hear the fuel pump cut in for just a couple of seconds. If it doesn't, check fuses and relays. If they are okay check to see if there is power at the fuel pump. If there is, you need to change the fuel pump.
Get a timing light and hook it to any spark plug wire, and see if you have spark. If you don't, first, i would check the timing belt. If it's okay, try changing the ignition coil pack.
Let me know how you make out when you get that far.
