My info says to take fuel pump connector loose, then start the vehicle, when it runs out of gas, it will die.
Usually after it sits overnight w/o the key being cycled, shouldn't be much pressure if any, but, you still need to be aware. Use a catch pan, gas will probably run out of fuel lines. If one end of fuel filter has a threaded fitting, take it loose slowly in case of some pressure.
Do it outside in the open air. If you use a drop lite keep it away from the gas.

I am smelling gas from inside my car when its running. I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero with a 2.4 liter engine

It sounds like a gas leak on the fuel line, probably near the engine. Check the hoses that carry fuel from the metal lines to the engine. If you have fuel injection check the connections to the fuel rails. If you have a plastic cover on your engine it will be underneath that cover. Look for wetness, especially after stoping the car when everything is under pressure.

Where is the fuel filter located and how do you change it. Can this be done without going to the garage.

The filter is right behind the fuel tank and is parellel to the tank is about three inches in diameter, first you have to diconnect the negative terminal of your batterie, second relieve the pressure on the system, to do so start you car and remove the fuel pump fuse your car will die shortly after. to remove the incoming line to the filter you may need a special tool that would be available from your dealer or posssibly a auto tool store, to remove the output line you will need two types of wrenches a large open end to hold the filter assembly and a flare nut wrench for the nut (it is very important to use the wrench on the filter body to prevent twisting your fuel line), you will have to remove the bracket for your filter also....Good luck!!

How do I change the fuel filter for my 2000 Olds Alero and is this something that can easily be done. Also, if I can do this myself, where is the fuel filter located.

The fuel filter is usually located under one of the back doors on the underside of the car. Most vehicles require special tools to remove the fuel lines from the filter. Some cars merely use plastic clips to secure the lines. Make sure the pressure has been relieved from the fuel lines prior to removing the lines from the filter

it could possible be your fuel pump. If your fuel filter is going bad that want stop it from starting. I have a 2002 alero. I done have both fuel pump and fuel filter go bad. so i have a little experience with them.

Where is the fuel pressure regulator on a 2003 oldsmobile alero?

There are 2 fuel lines connecting to the fuel injector rail. The larger line is the pressure line and the smaller line is the return line. The smaller line attaches to the fuel pressure regulator. You will notice that the regulator also has a vacuum line attached to it. If you are planning on changing it your self, let me know. There is a specific way to change it for safety reasons.
Let me know.

Finding fuel filter for 2000 oldsmobile Alero

It should be up around the rear wheel somewhere. Follow the lines from where you put the gas in; they come together and the fuel filter should be right around there. Just replaced one. be careful, especially if the lines are rusty...
