How to replace the altenator in a 2003 Olds alero
Remove the coolant reservoir,2 nuts. You don't have to drain it or remove the hose. Set it out of the way. Take the belt off. They make a tool for this. You can usually rent one from a parts store. 1 bolt at the front of the alternator and 2 on the side by the fire wall to remove All 3 are 15 MM bolts.. Pull it loose and out some. remove the plug and power wire. I don't remove the battery cable, but you might want to. Negative side.

The main wire from the alternator to the battery is not making connection,just run another one to the positive side of the battery,to the large wire on the alternator,leave the other one on the alternator,just add this one,use as big of wire,or larger,a small cable will do nicely.

Something is wrong with my car, it's a 2003 alero 3.4, and keeps pushing out coolant, I fixed water pump, thermostat, cooling temp sensor, flushed the radiator.. I ask for help
When you say it is "pushing out coolant" you should be able to identify where the coolant is coming from. If the coolant is leaking beneath the vehicle from the firewall, it is a leaking heater core. If there is no evidence of leak but the coolant is disappearing, and there is white smoke coming from the tailpipe when the vehicle is running, it is a bad head gasket.
