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!
Ford Taurus vs House So Cedar St, Tacoma, WA
May 4, 2008. Stupidity was a major factor in this accident which finished
at South Cedar and 74th Street South. It began a block away at South Pine
and 74th. Or that is where the skid marks begin. One block away and on
the wrong side of the road! Witnesses reported that the vehicle was racing
another or pursuing another in a road rage incident. The driver was
speeding more than twice the posted speed limit. The vehicle rolled
several times end over end before coming to rest in the house. extrication
was required to remove the driver who only suffered a broken arm. No one
was in the house at the time of the accident and the driver was insured.

if your about to do this job your self please watch and you will have a
good understanding of how to do it. or at least whats involved.
This was a weekend project and i thought i would document it for fun... and
to help others.
This would have cost me between $1200-$1600 as a local shop. depending on
where i took it.
i did this job my self for just over $200 including the fallowing:
head gasket kit
new head bolts
new coolant reservoir
new spark plugs
RTV Black sealant
Quick set epoxy
and some coolant system flush.
for me it was better than buying a new car...
lets hope it lasts...

Ford Taurus SHO vs Ford Mustang GT
Two of the greatest cars I've ever owned. My 1990 Ford Taurus SHO, highly
modified, up against my 2005 Ford Mustang GT, bone stock. Both are five
speed manuals. Mustang had
300HP stock (factory crankpower spec). Taurus had roughly 254HP modified
calculation based on Dynoplot). I had decided to trim
my fleet a bit and list the SHO for sale, $3,000/OBO. After the testdrive
here, the buyer said "no negotiations necessary, I'll give you full asking
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.
