Ignition coil pack it intermitten.

also check the crank sensor and the main crank pulley, this is where the engine gets its firing orders from

Could be any number of thing's . Testing before replacing parts eliminates waste . If you don't know how to test , your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop that does. Electrical testing , fuel pump pressure an flow testing , hooking up a professional type scan tool to view engine sensor data parameters .

DO A TUNE UP.CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES.CHANGE AIR FILTER AND FUEL FILTER CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS WITH A CAN OF SEAFOAM. HAVE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER CHANGED. DOING A TUNE UP WILL TELL YOU IF YOU HAVE MINOR ENGINE PROBLEMS OR MAJOR ENGINE PROBLEMS. IF YOU BOUGHT CAR THAT A LEMON YOU CAN TAKE BACK IT. AFTER SO MANY DAYS.

It is a sign that you either have a bad wheel bearing or 1 off your speed censors on 1 of the tires is bad, I just had this problem with my olds alero, but it was a wheel bearing that needed replaced.

2001 Olds Alero will act **** when switching gears


My car does the same thing. I wondered that myself, I don't think that's what it is though, I don't think you have an issue with the transmission. Your car has TWO check engine lights, and with the Alero--if there is an issue with the transmission one of the lights will come on. I am not 100% positive of this, but I had a 1999 Bravada (Olds) and it did do that when I had a tranny issue.

I notice when I drive my 2001 Alero my right leg gets SORE from pushing the pedal so hard. I think it is age, not the transmission.

READ YOUR SERVICE MANUALS. I don't get why people ignore them, honestly they have a wealth of information in them...could have saved a lot of people lots of money when people started claiming their car wouldn't start when it was a security feature that is listed in the manual that came with the book.

2003 Olds Alero Will turn over but not start


Hard to determine without a diagnostics test. Since you replaced modulator and fuel pump and have same probelms, I was wondering:
Does it not fire or not turn over at all?

If you are not getting power to fuel pump at all times, that it may be a fualty Computer which can be about $400 to repair. VERY COMMON PROBLEM WITH GMs.

Do you have any engine codes? Or is your check engine light on?

Have you checked all your relays? This is the first thing I would do. You can check them with a digital ohmmeter or voltmeter.
