2002 Alero makes gurgling sound when in drive and pushing gas ped
I own a 2002 alero. When I put the car in drive and hit the gas pedal it makes sort of a gurgling sound. It seems to get higher pitched as I accelerate. I put it in neutral as im driving and hit the gas and it doesnt make the sound.

Accelerator cable may be sticking and not allowing the throttle to fully close when there is no pressure on the gas pedal. Check the cable at the throttle body to make sure the throttle is fully closing. This can also because by a faulty idle air control (IAC) motor.
So you had your oil changed or changed it yourself on you GM vehicle and the little light on the dashboard still says "Change Oil Soon". Your owner's manual should tell you how to reset it, however it's hidden away in one chapter or another.Here are the two easiest ways for most GMs.
First you need to turn your car On. This is not starting the car! Turn the key two "clicks" forward. All the dashboard lights should come on, along with the radio and odometer.
If your GM has the four buttons on the dashboard with all sorts of information: One button should have a road or "i" on it. Pushing this button will show your mileage, tire pressure, operating temperature, and all sorts of other stuff. You are looking for "oil life ##%". Once you find this, press and hold the button with the checkmark on it. After 5-10 seconds it should flash "oil life reset". Tada!
If your vehicle does not have the buttons mentioned above: Turn the car "On" (without starting car!!) Press the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. This is trickier than it sounds. It must be pressed ALL the way to the floor ALL 3 times. Then wait 5-10 seconds. The Change Oil Soon light should blink then go out. If not, turn the car off and go through the steps again.
I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero and my car was running rough and
stalling. Also when the car was shifting, it was making a "thud" sound.
My service engine light was on, so I took it to Autozone to run their
diagnostic tool. It came back with code
P0108 and they advised me to check my vacuum hoses as a possible
solution. I looked and found that my air hose running from my throttle
body to my map sensor was disconnected. I reconnected the hose and the
engine ran normally and didn't make any "thud" sound when shifting. My
car is back to normal. So check your hoses. If its still running rough,
you may need to replace your map sensor.
