Hello I just purchased a Oldsmobile Alero a few months ago. Wasn't a bad price so anyway it had 120,000 miles on it. This is my first car. I expected there to be a few problems but it drives pretty smooth so I'm not exactly sure what is going on. I have 3 issues so far that I have found, we'll for starter my ac works great. The air is very cold But the heater does not work. Just wondering what that could be. I also went to a local mechanic she said I was missing a bolt in my alternator. So they went to put it in and said this alternator is a little oversized if they put the bolt in then it would rub on the belt? I think that's what she said. She said it looks like it came from a junkyard. She said I need a bosch or delco something like that. Now is it a problem that I need to fix right away. Trying to see what needs fixed first. This is my last problem. Sometimes I try to start the car and it turns off. Like it sounds like it's it's starting or about to then cuts off. It comes right back on the second time. Now I have had it maybe once or twice were it didn't start till the third try. But is it the starter. Or the ignition. I do not want to make the problem worse. I do not want to get stranded because my car one day won't start. I hope to go to a mechanic within the next few weeks.
have the same problem?
