2001 alero flashing service engine light

If you're fortunate, it's simply lit to tell you it's time to have any number of services done. Some check engine lights are synced to come on at certain intervals. If it's not that, then it could be one or more of too many problems to even guess at.

2001 olds alero won't start

Does it crank over? Do you have dash lights? Is there fuel in the tank? Have you checked to see if you have fuel pressure? Is the check engine light on? SOOOO many possibilities could be causing it to not start

Bad acceleration on 2001 alero

I assume you have no check engine light, or service engine soon light on.
Start with the fuel filter that should be replaced every 30,000 miles.
The filter is located under the vehicle between the the fuel tank and engine.

Service Vehicle Soon Light comes on and sometimes stays on in my 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. Heater fan and rear defroster doesn't initially work and later works. It is a 2.4 Liter, 4 cylinder engine. Manual...

I think you have multiple issues - don't think they are all related.
Have the engine codes scanned and find out what is causing the check engine light to come on first.

2001 Alero "traction off" & emission problem simultaneously

One or more of the engine electrical plugs is now wet and shorting out the circuits.
Without taking each and every plug apart and drying with a hair dryer,,you are just going to have to wait this one out.
