Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
I'm assuming you mean it did crank over but did not start.
To a mechanic did not crank to us means dead battery or failed starter.
You stated it tried to start. This tell me the fuel pump failed. If you can spray quick start or brake cleaner in the throttle and it starts then the fuel pump failed. You may hear it running but it may not be pumping anything. You will need to confirm with a pressure gauge and a diagnostic scanner in order to confirm you have no other issues that can be seen.

If there is fuel pressure to the injectors,then the injectors are not pulsing,check for codes in the computer with a code reader,this will help a lot,but,if I had to guess,I would say the crankshaft sensor is at fault,it causes spark,and also pulse to the injectors,I hope this was helpful,and if so,please let us know,there needs to be a fuel pressure test to confirm the fuel pump is working correctly,and has enough pressure.
