Im looking to purchase a 2000 Alero. They say the only thing wrong with it is the head gasket but others tell me it could be a cracked head or anything and its making me very nervous. What could all be...

If it's drivable ask if you can take it & HAVE an independent inspection done. It can be bad head gasket, and head (cracked), cracked block and many other things. In any case, hope you're getting it cheap because it's going to be expensive to repair.

Why my 1999 oldsmobile alero runnig hot after I've gotten it fix

there may be air trapped in the coolant system. the fans may not be connected since you had the radiator replaced. bring it back to the mechanic who did the work and tell him your not satisfied.he should be responsible for the discrepany.

2000 olds alero overheating just minutes after start-up. I'm told its the intake gasket but it doesn't make sense. I would believe head gasket but not intake.

if there is no coolant in the vehicle it will overheat quickly also. it you added coolant its possible the thermostat is not opening causing an overheat. worst case scenerio the head gasket is the problem
