Bought 2001 Lumina.. head gasket was leaking. fixed that n noticed cooling fan motors were not running. Replace all 3 relays n ect n fans started working. Drove it two days n it started runnin hot pulled...


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.

91 CHEVY LUMINA IS IDLING VERY HIGH,AND CAT IS TURNING ORANGE,THATS HOW HOT IT GETS


Check for a stuck open EGR valve,it will have to be removed to be checked.Or you have a large vacuum leak,either one will increase idle and fuel causing hot cat and high idle.

Running hot


run hot even at highway speed? no leaks, or sweet smell? ever have to top off coolant? ever boils out of system? if no to all these, sounds like your cooling fans aren't working. there is a fuse either on the motor cradle or on the passanger side wheel well. start the car, let it warm up, and check for power to the cooling fans.

Your thermostat may have been installed upside down. Very common mistake. Was your vehicle running before the maintenance was done?

My 1992 lumina euro 3.1 chugs alot and stalls out to. Most of my friends say its the fuel system and others say it needs a tune up. I need help please car runs great dont want to get rid of it


hi f1
im dave
if thats all it does i wouldnt get rid of it .
does it stall out at idle or while driving?
while cold or hot?
there are many possibilities.
but a common problem on these 3.1s is the IAT motor or idle control motor attaching to the throttle body.
post me back
