Hi there:
You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing... Spark / Fuel / Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

SOURCE: 99 chevy lumina wont crank!

you probably have a broken wire in the ignition that reads the resistance in the chip in the key. there are two wires that attach the ignition switch to the security system.I had the same problem and it can be easily fixed by putting a resister in place of the chip in the key.any garage that puts alarm systems in cars will be able to do this very easily and very economically.

My Chevy Lumina cranks but wont start


Is the security system tripped? You need to determine whether the engine is getting fuel and spark for it to operate. Remove a spark plug wire and insert a screwdriver blade into the boot and ground it at the engine. Crank the engine over to see if it has a good blue spark. If spark ok, check for fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail. If no fuel, you will have to test the pump and its circuits. If fuel ok, you will have to check injectors and there circuits for operation

its and old car, and id bet never once tuned up in last decade.
did i guess right?
no spark, well, it takes spark at all cylinders not 1.
is spark good out of coil to distributor top?

if not, then we insert the diagnostic jumper to the DLC port
OBD1 ECU, back in 92. (old systems)
then crank for 5 seconds
then release key
then watch the ECU tell you why it fails to make sparks.

the cmp sensor instigates spark. think of dummer boy in band
then the ECU sees that and creates all spark.
via the IGNITOR, the IGNitor charges the spark coil and BAM
spark , if the cmp (sensor) or ignitor fails the ecu sees that
and reports it, all you do is LOOK.

This is a long shot, but I had a similar problem and it ended up being the that water pump locked up and caused it to jump time. Adjust timing and give her a crank.

My 92 Chevy Lumina isnt starting. its acting like it is out of gas but it has a half of a tank and the engine is getting fuel. so its not the fuel pump or fuel filter. can anyone help me out


you can be getting fuel but it has to be enough pressure to operate injectors. this can only be determined with a gage..does it fire if u spray starting fluid in the intake and crank ? if so u havent enough pressure from pump.

Try changing your filter first if that does not work it could be your pump. It is possible for the pump to still pump fuel up through your filter but if it is not putting out sufficient pressure then your car wont start. Most fuel injection systems require around 35psi to fire the injectors.
