I am guessing you dont have standard wheels fitted. Suspect incorrect size. If standard sounds like you have front end damage altering the steering geometry.

Check the fuse for the directional signals and replace if blown Also try replacing the directional signal flasher. This is different from the one that controls the emergency flashers. Consult your owners manual for the location. U

Sir/Ma'am I don't mean to come off as an a'hole but you might seriously think about getting rid of that car for your own safety and that of anyone who rides in it with you if you can afford to. The most dangerous car GM EVER produced! There are so many defects with that vehicle that GM paid out BILLIONS that resulted from the lawsuits over that and other similar Oldsmobile products. I owned a 2002 and was nearly killed after hitting a "not so deep" pothole which ripped the steering rack right off the frame at the factory welds! I know it is an expensive venture to disable the security feature "which causes engines to just randomly shut off" WHILE DRIVING at highway speeds. Something else to consider if you have a family.
Whatever you do I wish you well.

Danger! Always connect the charge fitting to the low side of the system and use the proper refrigerant. All low side fittings have been the same since around 1993. It looks like you are trying to apply the charge to the high side of the system. THIS CAN CAUSE THE CAN TO EXPLODE. Find the low side charge fitting. The low side will have a wider hose or tubing. A 134A charge kit will have the proper fitting to fit your car. The fitting might be hidden but when you find it the charge connector will fit on it.I recommend you use a charge kit with a pressure gauge. On a hot day it should read about 30-40 psi

If you know that your battery, starter and ignition are working properly then continue on to possibly disabling the security system which is a known fault with Olds Alero from a failed passlock sessor.

My guess is the ignition needs to be replaced. check to see if theres a recall for it. 2 years ago on my 2002 alero I found a recall for the flasher switch which was causing intermediate directionals and 2 more for the computer

sounds like your ABS sensor is bad. The ABS sensor controls the trac. control. but it wouldnt effect daily driving. you would only notice it if you slamed on the brakes on a slick surface. the brakes will lock up like they ARE NOT supposed to.

The one that doesn't make sense, is called a canister filter

If you go to your windshield or registration & look at the
8th digit,it will be a Letter.

That is your VIN# your looking at & the letter is your engine code

You go to Wix Filters.Com & find what I believe is the canister
filter,not the metal screw on ,your familar with

Under that cap you found on top of the engine is the filter

You will need an extension & a good size metric socket

If you need the size I can check my tools or catalog for you

Use a funnel and pour in the fluid into the transmission dip stick tube. Do it slowly so you don't overfill.
