Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

My car is skipping while running at 70mph

I am not sure if it is a fuel injection problem, but my car is a 1998 chevy lumina and it is skipping and hopping all over the place at 70 mph. Also, when i put my car in drive, it hesitates for a minute as if the brake was on then it begins to accelarate. What could the problem be? Could this be two separate issues?

I have a 1998 Chevy Lumina with the 3.8 litre engine, 197000 miles. The engine cranks up and runs fine until the engine warms up, then it stalls out and will not run. The engine will fire back up, but will...


One possible scenario is that the fuel pressure regulator is stuck in the high pressure mode because its vacuum diaphragm is leaking. High pressure mode is okay for cold starting. But as the engine warms up the high pressure setting leads to the fuel injectors injecting too much fuel and the engine floods out.

My 1990 chevy lumina just started making a noise when aceleratin


change fuel filter.then check fuel pressure.if you got TBI FUEL INJECTION PRESSURE SHOULD BE 26-32 PSI. IF YOU GOT MFI FUEL INJECTION PRESSURE SHOULD BE 40-47 PSI.if all is good .have car scan check the egr valve.map sensor. coolant sensor.if any one of those are bad it causes rich fuel mixture.that will cause you to fail smog test.also replace plugs and wires.if they are faulty they will misfire cause unburn fuel to come out exhaust.also check for for intake leaks check all vacuum hoses.

sounds to me like you may have some trash in your fuel lines or tank try flushing your fuel lines and possibly take the tank off and make sure there is nothing that may be inside blockin the flow of fuel to the engine if that doesn't work check your fuel pump it could be something as simple as needed a good fuel injection cleaner or something more serious like a blockage in the line itself

i doubt its a fuse. make sure all cylinder have good spark. try and run some seafoam through the gas tank and i would look at the timing - im not sure how you know the timing didnt skip but that sounds like your problem.

FIND FUEL FILTER


all you have to do is take off the gas cap to help release the pressure and take the clips off on each side of the fuel filter and make sure you put the filter back on and the arrow in going toward the front of the car.
