About Oldsmobile Alero

To celebrate Oldsmobile's centennial anniversary and compete with the popular and well-established Pontiac Grand Am, Mercury Sable and Ford Taurus, Oldsmobile Alero was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Oldsmobile between 1998 and 2004 as a mid-size car. Originally introduced to replace the entry-level Oldsmobile Achieva and Oldsmobile Cutlass, Alero was Oldsmobile's last compact car as well as the last vehicle sold under the brand. While due to poor sales, the production of Alero ended in April 2004 along with the entire Oldsmobile brand, and it was replaced by Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Epica and Pontiac G6.
Oldsmobile Alero was previewed in 1997 as an Alero Alpha concept car and went into production in April 1998. It debuted in 1998 as a 1999 model and was offered in two body styles: 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan. Alero came in three trim levels: base GX, mid-level GL and high-end GLS as well as a special Final 500 Edition, and GL was split into three levels: 1, 2 and 3. Built based on the N-body platform, Oldsmobile Alero was powered by a standard 2.4 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 150 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque, an optional 3.4 L V6 producing 170 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque and a quieter and more fuel-efficient 2.2 L inline 4-cylinder engine making 140 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. All three engines sent power through the 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions to the front wheels.

Oldsmobile Alero Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Oldsmobile Alero was considered by most to be a sporty-looking car thanks to its bulging wheel wells, sleek greenhouse, fluted side panels and large jewel-like taillights. But as an at least thirteen-year-old Alero, you need pay more attention to these common problems on it:
First, engine turns over but won't start and the car will not start are the worst reported problems with the Oldsmobile Alero. These are typical symptoms of engine failure, which is a serious issue for any vehicle. Many Alero drivers said it often happens when the vehicle reaches about 90,000 miles. In case you find this issue until the starting issues appear such as hard starting and inability to start, you can refer to these simple and recognizable symptoms. First, you may hear strange sounds such as squealing, rattling or whining from the engine; then you will notice the engine runs roughly, misfires, stalls and consumes excessive oil. If the cooling system starts to leak coolant and the engine keeps at a high operating temperature, all will get worse. Before it results in starting issues, you could also see if the Check Engine Light is activated. Once above symptoms are confirmed, you need to inspect the Alero spark plug, engine mount, oxygen sensor, air filter, oil filter, head gasket, intake manifold gasket and cooling hose immediately.
Second, suspension failure is also very common on Oldsmobile Alero, and it also could lead to fatal consequences. Most Alero drivers may know that the uncomfortable and unsteady driving experience is caused by this issue, they do not realize that terrible accidents could also result from this. But in fact, though noises from the beneath the vehicle are first signs, they are also reasons for the uneven and excessive tire wear and tilting vehicle. Gradually, you will find hard to control the vehicle and dangers come. Therefore, please make sure the Alero steering knuckle, wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing and coil spring insulator are in the right order all the time.
When practicing routine maintenance on your Oldsmobile Alero, if you know what parts need in advance could be a great help.
