Hi ,
I have 3 Lumina's and love them but they all have some problems that they all share. Like the fact that they eat alternators. Also they were built with plastic intake manifold gaskets that almost always leak and have to be replaced. This problem happened to me and I had a time finding out what it was. For me it was the water temp. sensor had gone bad. Its located on the driver side in a housing at the end of the upper radiator hose. Right by the throttle assembly. It is an inexpensive part about $12.00 or so at Autozone and easy to replace when the engine is cold. This simple part supplies the computer with information that it uses for determining driveability. Good luck. onomrbill

Shuts down for no apparent reason


Have you figured out if you are loosing spark or fuel pressure when the engine quits ? Could be a relay, coil, fuel pump, or various other electrical components.

Quits after warm up wont restart


sounds like you have a fuel pump problem, fuel pumps will usually get hot and then shut off allowing it to sit 30 mins lets the pump cool down allowing it to start pumping, the way you can test it is get a can of starting fluid the next time it quits raise your hood and spray some fluid down into the throttle body and if it starts and then dies it is most likely your fuel pump, hope this helps.

I have a 1991 Olds cutlass ciera 3.3 v6, starts up fine when cold/cool. Runs down road fine till warm, then stalls, will not restart. Cranks fine, just won't fire up. You can pull air filter, sprinkle...


Good Evening, you might want to check those injectors, I can not remember for certain but that setup was sequential and when one or two have a problem it would take out the rest. Ohm out the injectors and see what you have there.

Car loses power after you drive it for awhile. It eventually quits. It has new fuel filter. When you shut it of and let it set for awhile it starts and runs fine until it warms up again.


if not the fuel pump, maybe an ignition system component is failing after it heats up. I'd check if fuel present, then diagnose ignition.
