2002 Oldsmobile Alero GL Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2002 Oldsmobile Alero GL.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough

What I have to say about the 1999 Alero: For 1999, Oldsmobile has replaced
the aged Achieva with the new Alero. Set to compete with the top dogs like
the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, stealing sales is very unlikely but
stealing sales away from the Dodge Sratus and Ford Taurus are easy. The
Oldsmobile has a very ergonomically correct interior and everything is easy
to reach and modern. The seats are very comfortable and material quality is
decent. Styling on the Alero is also a strong point with a nice curvaceous
front end that makes it stand out from other midsize sedans. All in all
great car from Oldsmobile.Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!
1999 Oldsmobile Alero GL (attempt to start with blown engine)
This was actually filmed in January of 2010. This was my car from 2005 -
2007 and then my brother took it after I got my Aztek. When I first got it,
the intake gasket on the 3.4 Liter V6 started leaking, so I had it fixed as
soon as I could. Come to find out sometime in the summer of 2009 that it
started leaking again because the person who did it the first time didn't
fix it properly. My brother had it fixed for the second time, but it must
have been too late. On Dec. 26, 2009, it was toast. The camshaft on the
front half of the engine broke which caused a valve to be stuck open, thus
the piston came up and jammed that valve.

Crash Test 1999 -Discontinued Pontiac Grand Am / Oldsmobile Alero (Frontal Impact) IIHS
Pontiac Grand Am
results also apply to: 1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Poor
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Marginal Acceptable Good Good Marginal Poor
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles
of similar weight.
The Pontiac Grand Am was redesigned for the 1999 model year and the
Oldsmobile Alero was introduced in the 1999 model year. Note: 2005 model
Grand Am sedans were sold as new cars only to fleets and were discontinued
altogether after the 2005 model year. The Alero was discontinued after the
2004 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement wasn't well controlled.
During rebound, the dummy moved toward the driver door, which had bowed
outward, and its head hit the window sill. Then the head moved up and back
and hit the B-pillar. Plus there was too much upward movement of the
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck and chest indicate low
risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. A high
head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the B-pillar,
indicating that injuries to the head would be possible. Forces on the right
tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible. Head
acceleration from the window sill hit was low.
Look at a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
Today i show another one owner olds! The Alero was the last Oldsmobile
sedan that was made, production ceased in April of 2004. This particular
one is a one owner car, it was maintained and the couple was really sad to
see it go
I have videos on other Oldsmobiles as well, fell free to check them out
Oldsmobile Alero Pacesetter Exhaust
The camera has crappy sound recording so to me it sounds like atari but I
did the best I could. Its a 3.4 V6 with a Cold Air Intake and modified PCM.
This baby's got some growl to it :)
I have replaced the MAF, and IAT sensor, to no avail. I still get the error
code MAF circuit to low on the computer. I have checked all connections.
What is wrong!
