Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

1995 Lumina Van runs good and then wheels shake and doesn't accellerate good.

This happened before. I started driving the 1995 Chevy Lumina Van when I needed a car. It ran good for two months. I got the oil changed yesterday. Today was mid-70's (has been cold weather). Today, I stopped to see if I had a flat. I didn't. I drove on. The van vibrates and actually feels like the wheels could fall off. At one point I couldn't get it to go over 55 mph (the speed limit was 65). I have not been having any trouble at all, and then it vibrates so badly today the steering wheel shakes and I can feel my body shake, too. I had it in a shop and they really didn't find anything. Help.

A shop didnt find anything? You have a suspension problem Lets start at the tires is there any mud or crude that affect the balance of your tire? What about wheel bearing is there side to side movement even with the rear,How about the upper ball joint and lower ball joint . a warp drive axle can cause this . If you are certain of there inspection with the suspension the problem is the torque convertor. If that stays lock up whoa you will be shaking like big time

SOURCE: Hard Accelleration at highway speeds

Since I work in government, my first question should be why would you need to go over 70 mph, but since I have a lead foot and a long list of speeding tickets on my record, I will keep my mouth shut on that topic. While cruising in the 70-80 mph, your transmission should already be in top gear, so you can probably eliminate the transmission. There are several possible causes of your problem including a vacuum leak, fouled plugs, bad spark plug wires, a dirty air filter, or a dirty fuel filter. Review your service records and see what has been replaced and when, then start looking at what hasn't been replaced. Sorry I can't be more precise without laying hands on it.

Do this first.. drive this vehicle very slowly on a smooth straigh road. If the wobble is noticed you have a broken steel belt in your tire that fluxuates at different speeds causing this to happen

95 Chevy lumina van, heat on won't turn off. A/c


Hi wodermom26,

Your Lumina APV is a clone of the Pontiac Transport and Oldsmobile APV's which all have identical Heater & A/C controls. The Heater & A/C controls usually wear out mechanically causing no control of temperature. This is a difficult repair and is best made by a dealers ASE Certified Technician. A/C may require re-charging and or possible replacement of the hoses which carry the refrigerant as they become porous and leak. Additionally, the Compressor and its Clutch may possibly require replacement.

The High beams are controlled by pushing the Turn Signal switch forward toward the Instrument panel and have a momentary "Flash to Pass" function by pulling the Turn Signal Lever upward toward the steering wheel and return to Low Beam upon release of the turn signal Lever. If neither function of the Beam selector lights the High Beams it is pssible that the Headlamp bulbs are burned out or open connections in the wiring harnesses. Do you have an owners manual for your Lumina? If so it has information regarding the Multi-Functions of the Turn Signal Lever.

We have a chevy 1995 chevy lumina the head lights go out during long drives at night == now either the lights are tired or I have a problem. Also where is the fuse box on this van.


Sounds like a charging problem. I would have the alternator and battery checked out. Most places do this for free. Places like auto zone or les schwab. Your fuses are located drivers side underneath steering wheel to the left.
