Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

I have a 1995 chev lumina 3.1 engine. The car always starts and runs fine when cold. After driving the car for a while and the engine is hot it will restart right away after turning off. BUT if the car sits for 15 minutes or more after shutting off it will not restart. Fuel filter ok fuel pump running ok.It will try to start but sputters out like all cylinders arent firing. Once it cools down enough it starts fine again????

It almost sounds to me like your EGR valve is full of carbon and not able to open properly so your engine is running rich.

I had a similar problem. Is your temperature gauge pegged to the right as very hot? Or reads always cold, even when hot. If it is a 3100 motor their is a coolant temperature gauge sending unit under the air breather intake that is right next to where you replace the thermostat.

Get a haynes repair manual at a parts dealer, Amazon, or your public library.
On the Chevrolet Lumina, Monte Carlo, & Impala FWD 1995 to 2005 it's under section 3-8 on page 3-6. It goes into great detail, and it's too complicated to explain here. If your sensor is bad, but the wires and fuses are good then the fans won't run.

Your second fan only runs when the air compressor is turning, If your ac compressor is not running then the sensor will not have the passenger fan run.
You have to see if the fan motors are good and then the wiring is good, and no fuses blown. You might blow fuses so have extra blue ones if I remember right. Recheck fuses after testing.
