Question about 1997 Chevrolet Lumina

Took my 1997 chevy lumina to car wash...now wont start

I took my car that has very low mileage for its year (60,000), to a local car wash. On my way back home the car just stalled and shut off and wont start. What could be the problem? Could some water got some where it wasnt suppose to? Any ideas would be of great help. thank you. If you have this same model I would suggest letting the rain clean your car...

1997 chevy lumina oil light is on and engine is ticking


check the oil level then the oil pressure with a gage.if this is okay then how long has it been since the oil was changed as very dirty oil gets so thin that it won`t do its job.you may just have normally worn engine components if you have a high mileage car.the oil pressure will help with the diagnoises.and direction of repair

Can I use a different model year door mirror on a 98 chevy lumina


Door mirrors on chevrolets tend to be model and year specific. the auto recycler can tell you for sure since most carry a book which shows what parts will interchange with what car.

97 Chevy Lumina...wont start after car wash


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. If you have the 97 chevy lumina Car 3.1 you dont have a distributor cap. People really dont need to post unless they know what they are saying.

Now your have 3 coils on the top of your engine water could have easily got under one of them.

Now did the car not turn over at all or did it keep turning over but did not fire up.
