The Alero came with THREE different engine options, two 4 cylinders, and one V6, if your not sure which engine yours came with, open the hood.
There will be an emissions information sticker (white) on the underside of the hood or on the radiator core support (the metal that runs from one side of the front to the other)
It will say "2.2L, 2.4L, or 3.4L"

Once you have this info, ask again, and I will find out for you ?

Service engine soon light is on indicating a problem with your engine. Take it to somewhere like Autozone (it is free to check code) to see what the code and problem is, then fix the problem or the light would just keep coming on every time till it is fixed.. You can use a scanner to read and reset the light, code.

Basic obd and the obd testers usually are only capable of reading faults that are exhaust emission related and more specialised equipment and software is needed to read other faults.

Removing the fuse and replacing it would have rebooted the computer and that could indicate a fault or not, make of it what you will but I guess time will provide the real answer.

Do yourself a favor an have a qualified repair shop look at . Before you buy more parts the vehicle doesn't need . A qualified repair shop would have fix it for less then what you put into it. Some people just are not meant to fix their own cars .

I'm assuming you meant 5000 RPMs? If so it sounds like your transmission is slipping. That would also cover the other symptoms you mentioned except for unresponsive idle. I'm not quite sure what you mean by that. It's also possible that it's your computer but not as likely
