Question about 1990 Chevrolet Lumina

1990 chevy lumina stalls when stopped..

Hi,
I just recently had a new fuel pump put in my lumina and now the check engine light comes on. I've noticed that when the car is stopped (at a stop light or when I put it in reverse and stop to switch to drive) it tends to stall. I haven't tried to replace anything else yet, but I think it might be the O2 sensor?! I'm not sure though, so if anyone knows what it could be please let me know! Thanks so much!!

If you live near an "autozone", drop in for free scan for trouble codes, then we can go from there, otherwise get back to us & we'll guide you as best we can. Too many items can cause similar symptoms, so better to get code & nail it first try, and much cheaper.

Just changed fuel pump and now rough idle surges and when stopped at red light my check engine light comes on but goes off when i start moving again


Did you just do the pump or the whole module.If you just did the pump the hose at the fuel pump may not be adeqautely secure this can result in low fuel pressure. Just for giggles remove the vacuum hose at the fuel pressure regulator and see if it make a difference if it does redo the fuel pump,secure the fuel pump with new clamps (not those plastic ones)

Fuel pump wont come on.Was wondering where the fuel pump relay switch is on the 1990 chevy Lumina


If it is the same as my 1991 lumina it will be mounted to the left strut tower under the hood. There should be a fuse and a relay.

97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30


I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

Car runs fine when cold, when warm it stalls


My first guess is a vacuum leak or maybe a defective IAC. Tests need to be run to narrow the search down.

1990 chevy lumina, idling problem... to rich.... stalling......


check egr valve for vacuum leak. pull hose from manifold. put hose in your mouth like a straw and **** on it. if the valve moves, then it's good. if it doesn't, you need a new egr valve. WARNING, they are fricking expensive! auto zone price $204. NO JOKE

1993 Chevy Lumina stalls from a stop.


My 93 Lumina did the same thing and a simple tune up solved the problem. For whatever reason, the rear middle plug wire goes bad before the others.

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.
