Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
Can hear fuel pump kick on but won't start
Try checking to see if there is fuel coming from the fuel line, it will be under the hood. What your looking for is the fuel line where the fuel injectors are at. Follow the line until you see a nozzle ( it looks like the air nozzle where you put air in the tire). Turn the car on and if no fuel sprays out then you need to replace the fuel filter. Also you may want to check the fuel relay, while your at it check all the fuse in your fuse box under the hood and in your car. Good luck.

check your fuel filter first ? and have your tech attach a fuel pressure/volumn gage to see if its the pump? you may need to spray starting fluid to see if it starts to eliminate igniton/ computer issues first? the pump only runs for 5 seconds when you turn the key thats normal? good luck autodoc

I had a very similar problem - someone also replaced the fuel pump to no avail. I found the problem to be a poor ground connection where the fuel pump wires were joined to the connector under the rear of the car. I was able to easily fix this by listening for the pump while moving the cable connector. Haven't had a problem since.
