Bernie Mack: Just got done replacing my 2000 Alero fuel pump the video made it so much easier thanks a whole lot
Patty lovinglife: A bad injector going short to ground can cause the injector driver to overheat, causing engine to cut off. Won't restart until driver cools. Suggest ohming injectors for equal value somewhere between 12 to 16 and not to vary more than .5. This looks like my problem!
Patty lovinglife: This is my problem. It has happened 5 times while driving vehicle. I want to make sure it is FUEL PUMP. 2000 Olds Alero 3.4 V6 engine car starts and drives but cuts off automatically after driving for a bit. When it cuts off, the engine will not turn over. I have to wait an hour comeback and it starts back up. Again starts up great every morning, but cuts out while driving after a few miles. I have not driven far because of this reason. FUEL PUMP GOING BAD?
MysticInvestigations: I got a free fuel pump once because the place I took it to assigned it to a young mechanic who determined that was the issue. When the car still wouldn't work right it ended up being some error with the computer that was easily re-programmed. I wonder if that guy lost his job. LOL!
Adam Lenning: I had to replace my fuel pump in my 2002 Alero and it is really as easy as he makes it look. Took me less than an hout on the ground to drop the tank,change the pump and reinstall it. Been running for over a year now. 30k later lol
Jesse R: Thanks for the video i will have to replace the pump but this will get me through... i hope :P
Oscar Rodriguez: This is the closest video i've been able to come up with, for what i have to do in my Alero.
Richard Pearce: Will it fit a 99 cadillac sts seville
Airtex Pumps: Yes. This fuel pump fits 2000 – 2004 Oldsmobile Alero 3.4l. To verify the correct fuel pump for your car you can visit our technical FuelPumpU website.
Thanks for watching!
Ryan Moore: Can you do work on 340 engine alero?
Airtex Pumps: If you are having starting issues a good place to start is to install a new fuel filter. If that does not fix the issue then you will need to check the fuel pressure to see if it is within specs. The pressure specs for this vehicle are anywhere from 52-58 psi. This will help determine if you have a fuel system problem or if the issue is in another system. If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to call our free Tech Line: 800-424-7839.

DeZ Porch: hi, I have a 2000 alero it turns over like it wants to crank but I do not think its catching gas do you think it is the filter needs to be cleaned or a new fuel pump. Please help!
HBlatz87: These videos are great for people who happen to have a vehicle lift in their garage. lol
Appreciate it nonetheless, but doing this on your back must really suck.
Xavier Holland: You mean throttle body. There is no carburetor on any car after the 80s. All vehicles went to EFI. What you are talking about is the throttle body. If the pump engages but the vehicle will not send fuel into the block, keep in mind there are about 4 major things in between the fuel pump and the engine block. Fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, fuel rail or fuel injector rail, and the fuel injectors. This can be a difficult area to diagnose and a mechanic will need to air test the line.
Airtex Pumps: Labor rates vary across the country so it's difficult to estimate the average rate in your area. The time to change the fuel pump in your vehicle is 1.8 hours. Maybe this will help in determining the amount to change the fuel pump. Thanks for watching.
Airtex Pumps: Unfortunately, it's difficult for us to give an estimate as labor rates and install times vary drastically from shop to shop.
grey castle: about how much is it to have the fuel pump replaced, it just seems more work than I can do
Airtex Pumps: If after replacing the fuel pump the gauge quit working, you should check the wiring harness to make sure it is in good order & check the ground to make sure it was not damaged/loosened during the installation. If all of those check out then you may have to remove the unit from the tank to see if the float arm is hanging up on something or if there is an issue with the sender assembly. If you need more help once you get started, please feel free to call our free tech line: 800.424.7839. Thanks.
payito: hi, after replacing the fuel pump in my 99 alero, the gas gauge won't work no more do you any suggestions?
Airtex Pumps: Hello, the first thing to do is to check the fuel pressure. If your car has a 2.2L then the spec is 50-60 psi & 3.5L the spec is 52-59. Both are Key on/Engine off specs. This will tell if there is a fuel pressure problem or if the problem lies somewhere else. If you need more help, don't hesitate to call our free tech line: 800-424-7839 and one or techs can walk you through the diagnosis. Thanks.
