2000 olds alero went to gas i went to start it and died out will only crank but will not start replaced plugs but only cranking

if you just filled it you probably stirred up rust or dirt from the bottom of tank and it is plugging filter ...preventing starting. Take the gas cap off to release pressure in tank. Bounce the car once or twice to help the junk fall off filter in tank. Let set for 1/2 an hour and then retry starting. Had a Chevy celebrity that did this regularly until I pulled the filter and drained the tank.

My 2000 oldsmobile alero loses coolant from the recovery tank at idle. The temperature is ok while driving, but after stopping and idling for a while. The coolant spews out of the recovery tank.

Can you tell if the coolant is boiling over, or if there is excessive pressure in the cooling system ?
Is the engine hot when the coolant leaks out, or is it just a faulty pressure cap ?

My 2003 olds alero reservoir leaks

Your cooling system needs to be pressure checked to see where the leak is. certain auto parts stores rent out a pressure checker. make sure you have the cooling system full before doing the pressure test. check to see if you have a radiator cap and fill the system that way instead of using the resevoir

Cant find the low pressure port to charge a/c on 2000 olds alero

It should be near the compressor on the low side line. It is a huge pain to get to. Feel along the line, and you should come to the fitting.

1999 Olds Alero leaking coolant and running rough

in my experience it sounds like a head gasket problem it maybe leaking into the cylinders or could be a small leak from one of the hoses I would do a compression test just to make sure and then pressurize the entire system using radiator and coolant tester if pressure holds then its not a leak as far as the fans go just have the car running when it reaches the middle of the temp gauge it should come one if not you may need to run check on temp sensor or fan switch and fans them selves I would follow repair manual troubleshooting section on heating and cooling haynes or chiltons will do.

Where is the radiator cap on 2001 Olds Alero?

if you dont see a radiator cap then the cap for your resevoir tank also serves as your radiator cap, thats where you would put your radiator cleaner and dex-cool in at. it is pressurized just like a normally radiator is with a normal radiator cap on it so dont open it when its hot! the resevoir cap should also have dex-cool stamped on it
