Lumina troubleshooting

Sounds as if you are having fuel injector problems . Try putting in high octane gas and then some fuel Injection cleaner run it for awhile and see if it straightens out some . It could also be a injector pump . It may also need tune up plugs and plug wires new rotor and rotor cap . You may need a tune up badly also check your intake air cleaner ect

How to diagnose my car to save time and money

MAINTAINANCE, this is an important word ! an never assume ! tune-up is another, so begin with tune-up, spark plugs, wires, cap / rotor, fuel filter, oil filter, fresh oil, transmission filter /fluid , very important, air filter must be changed also. don't go over 45-50mph until you do all of the above dude. put some drygas in your tank, red bottle, has fuel injector cleaner in it. now get to work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Rough idle 95 astro van, I did a full tune up , plugs,wires,cap, rotor,air filter,and fuel filter and cleaned egr vavle.

I actually had to replace my EGR valve and the gasket. I clean the valve well and reused both. I don't think the gasket sealed well enough though. So I went ahead and got a new valve, gasket and changed them. It runs a lot smoother now.

No problems really,stalls once in a while. Just curious what consists of a tune-up on my engine. what I should replace and so on.

This would include your spark plugs or coils, the wires, a new distributor cap, an oil change, air filter, fuel filter, and a coolant flush. A tune up can make a car run like new again. Some don't change the fuel filter on a tune up but I have always said it is best too. They can get clogged up over time.

What is an ignation tune up for a 99 Merc. Gnd.

A full ignition tune up would be new spark plugs and wires.A cap and rotor if it has those. Do any fuel system cleaning before changing the plugs.

Try the a full tune up. Change your plugs, oil, and filters. Put in some fuel conditioner and try getting fuel from a different gas station. The fuel filter sounds like an inexpensive and important part of this equation. But try the tune up to whatever is cost effective for you. You should notice quite a difference.
