#3008 of 3012 2001 Olds Alero won't start in cold weather

I have a 2001 Old Alero that will not start in the cold weather. Now the ignition switch has been replaced and still have the same problem. I turn the key and it will not turn over. When I replaced ignition switch and programed it, like it stated. 10 mins in the on position...etc.. My security light flahed and all that. Well it still is having the same problem. Except now when I do the 10 min wait game my security light does not flash. It comes on and goes out. However once the car gets started it will start everytime for that day. What the heck people.

This past spring we too had a water leak in the front passenger footwell of our 2000 Alero. We're not sure when it started, as we had the car parked in our garage most of the time. Last March, we moved from Ontario to Nova Scotia and don't have a garage here. The first thing we noticed was that the AC/heater fan stopped working.
Hubby removed the molding underneath (thinking it might be the blower motor resistor gone out yet again), and water spilled out. We also noticed water pooling in the passenger-side footwell, and we could see drips and feel dampness behind the carpet along the firewall. Initially our mechanic thought it was a problem with the case that houses the AC/heater fan; he thought the silicone sealant had cracked loose from its cover. So he pulled off the old silicone and applied more, but we still had the leak.
Hubby also noticed that the rubber seal at the base of the windshield, on the right-hand side, moved slightly when he touched it, so we took it to Apple Auto Glass. He did two things: redid the silicone seal around the lid of the AC/heater fan, and also completely resealed the rubber trim around the windshield. We're not sure which worked, but since then we have had no rainwater leaking in. I tend to think it was the loose windshield trim, since the housing had been recaulked once, and we noticed the loose section on the windshield seal after that.

Hello, I have a '99 olds alero and it has been making a rattling noise that goes away when in neutral. However, just a couple days ago it started to sound like a remote control car. its especially bad when making turns or accelerating. If anyone can help, Id really appreciate it. Im due to have a baby in 4 weeks and am scared to death my car isnt going to make it.

If it's only while you are driving and gets worse when turning around corners I would have your wheel bearings checked. I have a 2004 alero with 99K miles on it and have replaced both front wheel bearings with Timkin bearings.

I just got my alero back from the shop for the car stalling randomly.
It was the fuel pump that was not working right. You needed to bring thear pump stalling in. I recommended you drive the car around close to the auto body shop and wait intell it dies. thats what i did, they where able to find out that the fuel pump at times would stop working after. the fuse for the pump popped.
