Question about 1997 Chevrolet Lumina
Car runs fine till operatig temp. Starts shutting down and eventually quits. Acted like fuel problem. Changed fuel filter and pump. Still doing same thing.
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
