Question about Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

I have a 1991 Chevy Lumina Euro with about 185,000 miles that I purchased about 2 1/2 years ago. It is now running rough and is lacking in power. It blows a lot of smoke especially when I clim a hill and uses about a quart of oil a week. When at idle at a stoplight sometimes there is a pinging noise but reved up to 1,500 rpm the noise stops. The plugs and wires were replaced about 6 months ago. Could it be a timing belt has stretched and slipped? What could I expect to pay to replace the belt?

Doubt that it is the timing belt. sounds like your piston rings are starting to go. I could be wrong. best thing to is check the timing first. if it is in time pull the oil dip stick and smell it to see if it is burning

Is yourd check engine light on? If it is, I would have the codes read first thing. If not, it could be clogged fuel filter or air filter, loose vacuum hose, or bad throttle position sensor or other sensor but the sensors or any electrical problem will set off check engine light.
