Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

5 Answers

A95 chevy lumina cranks but will not start.

My daughter was driving my 95 Chevy Lumina Sedan. It has the 3.1 engine. She pulled out on the road and the car just quit on her. She states it will just crank and turn over but will not start. My brother in law is a mechanic and looked at it. We changed the Ignition Control Module and the crank sensor and it will still not start. I am looking for help. Ive been told the problem may be the Powertrain control module? Another thing that is happening is there is no spark coming from the coil packs to the spark plug when we pulled it and turned it over. Any ideas....thanks in advnace

    It sounds like it would normally sound...Just turns over but will not start. Just turns over and over....

    We have checked and it is getting fuel. What are the chance that all three coil packs would go bad at the same time. Fuses are checked. The ECM...is that the Powertrain Control Module...Is there a way to check the old one before swapping it out?....Another thing that is strange according to my brother in law...When he hooks up a scan tool to check the car it wont read anything.....Says its not hooked up?

    We replaced the ignition control module under the coils and it still didnt work.....

    IF YOU HAVE NO READING AT THE SCAN TOOL THERE IS NO POWER GOING TO THE COMPUTER!!! THIS MUST BE CORRECTED FIRST OR YOU CAN CHANGE EVERY SENSOR/MODULE IN THE ENTIRE ENGINE BAY AND IT WILL NEVER START!!!!!!!!!

    Saw that on a chrysler car a few months back. corrosion in the power lead to the computer was giving the same condition. Are you sure the ecm fuse (s) are OK. ? You will need a harness diagram to check pins on computer for power. Only test for computer is a factory thing... you would need a major test unit to check programs etc within computer. Quick answer: no test! Did you try unplugging and plugging it back in? sometimes that's all you need to re-establish connection.

    check coil packs... they have a nasty way of not working, especially shorting to ground on bracket. Otherwise, you need to put a code scanner on there to avoid hit-or-miss repairs!

it sounds like your ignition module is failing, when the car dies, take off one spark plug wire from the coil and crank the key, see if there is spark. one other issue may be the crank position sensor which can also stop the module from firing a spark
