I'd start with the fuel filter (easiest/cheapest solution). If that doesn't work, check your air filter, replace if you have even a question about it, also very cheap solution. From there, I'd go to the spark plugs, then check the timing. Still no fix, it might be worth taking to shop to put on computer. If you don't have the shop as an option, and are relatively handy, look up directions on dropping gas tank, fully flush out, and fill back up with a few gallons of premium gas. Turn key on, without starting, for a few seconds, to allow the fuel pump to get the gas to the engine. (speaking of fuel pumps, if yours is in your tank, might as well replace when tank is down).
If none of that works, its most definitely the fuel injectors. Try cleaning 1st then replacement.
Good luck

About a gallon of water was mistakenly put in my tank when extremely low. It ran for about a mile and died. I have since put gas treatment and about 3 gallons of 93 octane gas but need to bleed the water...

remove fuel line from fuel rail end and put switch to on position let some fuel come out from line, then replace fuel filter, check oil if any water marks in oil if not fix fuel rail line back you are readu to use it normal.

I want to know how many gallons that the gas tank holds on a 1998 chevrolet lumina

Your owner's manual will have that info. On '97 Chevy Lumina 3.1 holds 61 litres... according to the manual.

Its possible that you are interesting to get the 1998 Chevroler Lumina - Owners Manual, there mentioned 16.6 gallons...


Good luck (remember rated this post).

How do I get to the fuel pump to replace it on a 1993 Chevy Lumina APV?

You'll need to remove the gas tank. The fuel pump unit mounts into the top of the gas tank, I'd replace the filter also.

My daughter ran it out of gas,now it won't start its a 1993 lumina euro.

Does it turn over like it wants to start?
If it does then put about 5 gallons of gas in the tanks and turn the key on. You should hear the fuel pump come on. It kind of sound like a humming sound coming from the rear of the car. If the pump in coming on then it is pumping gas to the motor. Torn the key on and off a few times and then try starting it. It may take a few times of trying this to get the gas pumped up to the motor.

Water in the gas tank

i would go up and get some HEAT they sell it at any auto store it treats up to 15 gallons of gas. HEAT takes the water and trapes it so that there isn't much water left into the tank and allowes the gas to run like it is supposed to..
