Question about 1990 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

1990 chevy lumina 3.1 MPFI and will not start?

The car will start if you hold the gas have way down and hold it and you have to keep pumping the gas to keep it runing sometimes. I replaced the head gaskets and thought that maybe my problem but its not. I also used it as a snow plow for two days ( snow was packed in the engin pay up to the exhaust and i had to jack it up and put a heater under to defrost it). If any one has any answers i thank you very very very much.

How do you remove the fuel pump on a 1990 Chevy Lumina APV?


The fuel pump is in the gas tank. Drive off or siphon out as much gas as you can. You will need to remove the filler hose. Drop the tank and remove the fuel lines on the top of the tank, Turn the ring counter clock wise that holds the siphon and pump in. Once the ring is loose, lift the the siphon and pump assembly out of the tank. The pump is on the bottom of the siphon. Replace, then reverse the process.

I have a 1990 chevy lumina runs great until you turn it off and restart it acts like its not getting gas


Hard starting? Try holding accelerator to floor until it catches then let off immediately, so as not to over-rev engine. (As it was done for a flooded situation with carburetor.) You may be getting leak-by on one or more injectors, causing it to act like a flooded situation.

Car will not start


No spark issue can be from a number of causes. Most likely the crankshaft position sensor. It is sensitive to minor damages. check position of the teeth. If bent carefully straighten. Also can be the ECM (main computer) On cars with no fuel pressure check oil sending unit because a faulty one that tells no oil pressure will make computer cut out fuel pump operation.

There is no RPM pickup switch on a 3.1L MPFI. The RPMs are derived from the igntion module, its a white wire on the 6 or 7 prong clip. It uses input from resolution of crank sensor to determine engine RPM. what is your problem?
