Why won't my 2001 Alero (2.4) start?

The most likely causes on the Alero are either a clogged fuel filter (which should be replaced every 30,000 miles in order to avoid damage to the fuel pump), or a weak or bad fuel pump. I'd start with replacing the fuel pump since it's the cheapest fix, the part costs about $20 at the Auto Parts Store. Here's a link to the fuel filter location and replacement:

The fuel pump replacement is more work and more money. The part costs between $100 and $150 to buy nif your a DIY, or about $650 for parts & labor at a repair shop. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, so the gas tank will need to be dropped if the pump is to be replaced.

Does a 2000 Alero have a reset button for the fuel system

This is one of the prime moments that a faulty fuel filter will raise it's ugly head. It's because the filter has now been allowed to run dry and all the sediment dams up inside once the fuel reenters the filter. I'd start there. Then listen for your fuel pump upon starting. You should be able to hear it cycle for about one second to prime the system. If you hear nothing then it's a good chance your pump is gone. This also is a very common occurance when running out of fuel.

Filled 2001 Alero with gas now car won't start

Have the fuel checked to make sure it is not contaminated with water and such.Pull the fuel filter,and try to blow threw it with your mouth,nasty,but it will tell you what you need to know.Also see if fuel will pump into a clear jar,with the fuel filter off,when turning on the key.Then check the fuel in the jar,you should be able to see the contaminates,and the water.

Car wil crank but will not start

First, turn just the ignition switch to ON. You should hear the electric fuel pump run for a few seconds. If not, start tracing the fuel pump circuits.
If the fuel pump runs, check the fuel pressure to be sure it is correct. Next look to be sure you are getting spark.

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.

Wont start

Do you hear a hum with the click? If you don't then i would say the pump is bad. Chk. all electrical connections to pump and try again.

Alero will crank awhile before it finally starts w/ more details

May have small fuel leak or fuel pump sending unit leak down. Or fuel pump psi low.

After 30 minutes try this turn key on. do not try to start wait 10 seconds turn key off then on again 10 seconds then try & start if it starts right away fuel system is losing PSI either back through the fuel pump or a leak in line. If you can find no leaks would suggest replace fuel pump & assembly.
Another possible but rare fuel injectors may be leaking fuel over time & dropping PSI needed for start up.

Wont start

Where the car runs on starter cleaner, this is definitely a fuel problem...

Could be a few things:

Do you hear the fuel pump running outside the car (for a few seconds) when you turn the key on (engine off)?

If not it might be the pump or the pump relay (in the engine compartment fuse and relay box)

If so, it might be:
Clogged inline fuel filter (in the fuel line from the pump to the engine)
Bad fuel pressure regulator
Bad injectors/wiring

Did you check the fuse and wires to see if you have power (and a good ground) to your engine computer (controls fuel injectors), this could also be the culprit (without power to the computer there is no way for the engine to get fuel).
