Would start by checking all fuses then check to see if the cars fuel pump is dead. Unplug the air boot from air filter housing, spray a bit of starting fluid or carb cleaner. If car wants to start with spray I'd be looking at the fuel pump. If no change check to see if motor has spark. Pull a wire ground it out on something that's metal and crank, spark should jump to metal (ground).

SOURCE: Engine will die

There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine. 
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty. 
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.

SOURCE: in my 1997 Chevy Lumina 3.1L the CHECK ENGINE SOON light is on

If it was a stock rebuild the original PCM settings should be fine check all the fuses and wiring possibly something was damaged or left loose this stuff happens to the best of us.next the SES light needs to be reset with a scan tool make sure to record all codes stored in the computer as this will aid in diagnosing any problems. the car must be ran thru a drive cycle usually normal driving conditions of say a mix of city and highway driving until the PCM relearns all parameters like o2 sensors emissions sensors ect... this can also be checked with the scan tool in the readiness moniters these monitors will be reset every time the SES light is reset. when pumping the gas pedal 3 time you are just resetting the maintenance light.

97 chevy lumina won't turn over but lights work. Makes a click sound and thats it.


You need a new battery-
It takes a great deal more power to crank a motor than it does to light up the lights. This is why your lights still come on even though the battery does not have enough power crank the engine over. If you install a new battery keep an eye on it...if it dies quickly then you have a bad alternator.

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

Have a 95 chevy lumina, the oil light came on and the engine died. Added oil, now car will not start.


How long was the oil light on before the engine died? Did you hear any noises coming from the engine before it died? If the oil light was on for a while and you were still driving on it, the engine could have seized up which would explain why it won't start back up. Do you know why the oil light came on? Do you have an oil leak that you're aware of or have you seen blue smoke coming out of your tailpipe while driving? There are a lot of different scenarios that could have happened with this.

My 97 chevy lumina had a lifter ticking I changed oil now sounds like all of them are tapping like crazy. it has oil light so I dont know how much oil pressure it has light goes off when started.


did you use an engine flushing agent ? if not try one, also you should be using a 10/40 semi synthetic oil for the age of car,then after refilling take revs upto 3000 for about 30 secs,(when hot)if that dont cure it then start looking at oil pump(more costly last)

I have a knocking noise at idle in my 97 Chevy Lumina...It goes away when I accelerate. What could this be?


after oil change' check oil pressure cold and then hot , then idle, if it goes up when reving it hot, thats good sort of,then if it goes way to low at idle and knocks, check idle speed. Fix it if so, still there , in the old days we would be cheap and put in a high flow oil pump, now I drive the "siht" out of a cheap car to see how long they last! It will supruse you> seen a 97 lumina with 400,000 km. slight knock and still going.

I have a 1992 chevy lumina z34, its not getting fuel to the injectors or the injectors or opening. I have fuel pressure. up to where you check for pressure on the fuel rail. it just died when I was driving...


Have you checked that engine oil level is okay, if so check that oil pressure switch is good. The switch is usually bypassed to start the engine, but it won't run with no oil pressure indicated...hope this helps
