Try changing your filter first if that does not work it could be your pump. It is possible for the pump to still pump fuel up through your filter but if it is not putting out sufficient pressure then your car wont start. Most fuel injection systems require around 35psi to fire the injectors.

very possible if you have a security light or anti theft light coming on flashing yes that's the problem is not check for spark anD fuel if you have spark try spraying starter fluid through the intake if it cranks then you may have a problem with a cam sensor

1992 Chevy Lumina euro 3.1 liter enginecar has been running and runs real well every now and then you wont to start. I spray starting fluid in it and it starts runs real well this is happen about 10 times...


its and old car, and id bet never once tuned up in last decade.
did i guess right?
no spark, well, it takes spark at all cylinders not 1.
is spark good out of coil to distributor top?

if not, then we insert the diagnostic jumper to the DLC port
OBD1 ECU, back in 92. (old systems)
then crank for 5 seconds
then release key
then watch the ECU tell you why it fails to make sparks.

the cmp sensor instigates spark. think of dummer boy in band
then the ECU sees that and creates all spark.
via the IGNITOR, the IGNitor charges the spark coil and BAM
spark , if the cmp (sensor) or ignitor fails the ecu sees that
and reports it, all you do is LOOK.

92 lumina not starting


Possibly a fuel regulator or injectors? it seems that there is insufficient fuel going into the combustion chamber. Take the fuel line off at the fuel rail and stick your finger over the hose, now get a friend to initiate the fuel pump by turning the key to on for a split second, if you cant stop fuel from ******* out from where you have your finger you know that the pressure is ok up to the fuel rail, put the fuel line back on then move onto your pressure regulator etc.

This is a long shot, but I had a similar problem and it ended up being the that water pump locked up and caused it to jump time. Adjust timing and give her a crank.

I have a 92 lumina and it won't start. But I put a new fuel pump on it. And it still won't start.


How do you know it was a fuel problem ? Pull a spark plug, do you have spark ? If yes, spray carb cleaner into the carb intake, and turn it over, does it start, then stop ?

My 92 Chevy Lumina isnt starting. its acting like it is out of gas but it has a half of a tank and the engine is getting fuel. so its not the fuel pump or fuel filter. can anyone help me out


you can be getting fuel but it has to be enough pressure to operate injectors. this can only be determined with a gage..does it fire if u spray starting fluid in the intake and crank ? if so u havent enough pressure from pump.
