Question about 2000 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

My 1990 Chevy Lumina won't start

I need to clarify.I am the one that posted the "2000" Chevy Lumina that turned over and over but stil would not start even with a jump. Actually it is a 1990 not a 2000. In any event I have listened for the fuel pump and think I can hear it sometimes . I have only heard the whining noise from the inside of the car when I try to start it . I haven't actually gotten under the car as I am a woman. But i am still determined to fix it myself if I can get some moral support here. . . .

Well hear comes the calvery. just kidden. i'll try to help, first, the best thing to do is fuel pressure chk. fuel pumps can sound like there working but there not. you can rent one at autozone and do it your self. its the only true way to tell if your pump is bad or good. your car has to have a certain amount of fuel pressure to run, autozone can tell you how much, and also show you how and where to hook it up. Good for you for wanting to do it yourself. just a few things you should know before you tackel this project. first get all the gas you can out of the tank, at about 8 pounds a gal. you don't need any extra weight. secound get someone to help you, its always best to have someone around even if its just for moral support, but more than that it can be a little ocward, and the extra hand dosent hurt either. and third the higher in the air the better hoist would be perfect. don't be intimidated by what i have said here, this is the worst case senareo if pump is bad. it not that hard and the more help you got the easier it is. heck it might not even be the pump, and all this pecking might be for nothing. hope everything works out for you. OLD SCHOOL.

1990 chevy lumina will get hot when car is turned off it will not start or even turnover for about an hour.

Most likely the starter, does it seem to drag when starting? Other things could be the coil or ignition module.

I have a 1990 chevy lumina euro that has a high idle when started and tends to die when coming to a complete stop. What could this problem be?

have you disconected or changed the battery lately- the idle needs to be reset.
my 89 regal had to be started cold -put in drive with your foot on the brake - then wait untill radiator fan turns on (open the hood first to be able to hear the electric fan kick on :)
this somehow set the warm idle speed and the problem was gone :)
