I have a 2000 olds Alero. Gl 6 cyl 3. 4, 4 door. I had to replace the engine about 3-4 years ago and this past spring the head gasket blew, so I had to invest in that. I am very adamate on taking care of my car and oil changes. Also, the whole dash cover and passenger air bag cover is peeling away. I noticed this is several Alero's I have seen in a parking lot. My main concern is the engine though. How many times am I going to have to invest thousands of dollars for the motor issues. Is there anything that can be done about the motor issue?.
