Check for vacuum leaks using A propane torch or starting fluid leave the torch off allowing a small amount of propane around hoses and intake manifold especially at rear of manifold ( cars have a history for intake gaskets ) IF YOU USE THE STARTING FLUID BE IN A WELL VENTED AREA AND USE ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT AT A TIME AND ALLOW TO DISPERSE BEFORE SPRAYING MORE DO THIS FIRST GOOD FIRST CHECK

Chevy lumina 1994 wont start smells like gas


Could be flooded out.Try starting it again with the gas pedal to the floor. Everytime you turn the key on, it shoots gas in the engine. When you try to start it, keep doing it for 20 to 30 seconds. Then let off. wait a couple minutes and do it again.

91 Lumina won't stay running; see lots of same question for same car but no problem solvers....Please help.


On electronic fuel injection pumping an pumping an pumping the gas pedal does nothing without the engine running ! Pushing the gas pedal to the floor will cause the PCM - engine computer to go into clear flood mode .

You have some very interesting ideas here , but not really how it works or is !

The vehicle will go into closed loop fuel control when the engine coolant temp reaches a definded temp an the O2 sensor get hot.

She would run for a couple minutes and die which is open loop when running, closed loop is when the sensors kick and it would die. Pulled spark plugs, they were black meaning no spark. Can only be 2

Black spark plugs indecate a rich condition , over fueled , wet spark plugs indecate no spark .

My 1992 chev lumina apv van stalls everytime i put on the brakes at every red light it restarts after no codes are coming up what could it be?:


check to make sure the power brake booster is not leaking, do this by starting the van and just let it idle in park and push the brake pedal if the engine stalls or surges or you hear a sucking noise under the dash then replace the power brake booster if there is none of these systems then replace the idle control motor. GOOD LUCK

My 1992 mercury capri turns but will stay on for only 2 or 3 seconds and turns off unless i keep my feet on the gas pedal but as soon as i release the gas pedal it turns off. At other time it turns on as...


It sounds like there could be some moisture involved here. Do you have a harder time starting it after it rains or it si damp. You might need to have your wiring harness checked. It sounds like it could also be an ignition problem.

92 lumina apv stalls after sitting short time


here are some signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator: the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start(usually in morning) MANY TIMES ENGINE STARTS BUT STALLS SHORTLY AFTER STARTING. a bad regulator can result in fouled spark plus, and fuel milage will decrease noticeably. the only cure is to replace regulator. what makes it fail usually it gets a tear in the diafram and it cant maintain fuel pressure. hope this helps toolman,

Car stalls


the problem sounds like it is not getting enough of fuel. check or replace fuel filter to see if this helps, also make sure fuel pump is pumping the fuel at the right pressure. have pressure checked if need be. if not enough fuel a vehicle will run at idle, but stall under pressure.
