How many quarts of oil and type does the alero take?


5 W 30 for the oil and the 2.2 Ecotec engine takes 5.8 qts and the V6 3400 takes 4.5 qts as far as the oil filter also depends on the engine. the 2.2 takes a paper element. look to the right of the engine and you'll see a black round canister with a hex looking nut attached to the top. I belive it's 32mm. use an extension but be careful putting it back on because the cap is just plastic Do not overtightnen! just snug it up firmly

sounds like you\'re not getting enough fuel; disconnect the fuel line under the hood and put it into a container and crank the engine or just turn on the ignition for a couple of seconds to activate the fuel pump; it should be pissing like a race horse; if it\'s not, then you have a clogged filter or a weak pump.

Have a look at the intercooler pipes if the expand once you press accelerator if they do very little you need to check if there is no oil build up inside, if there is than you will have to get your intercooler and pipes cleaned or replaced.

Sounds as if converter on exhaust is getting plugged up. have it checked and replaced. That will force exhaust out ahead of it where ordinarily it would flow with less pressure. Oil leak is a separate item.
