Lumina troubleshooting


My APV locked in overdrive and would stall the engine at stops. This van was my daughters and they had junked it because of the cost of repair. I would test the tranny lock up by coasting up to a stop and if I sensed the tranny was locked I would floor the accelerator a couple of times with a quick back off each time. After a dozen or so of these procedures whatever was sticking thje lockup came free and the problem was mixed.

When my 92 chev van Lumina gets warm it stalls and won't start till It cools down. What could the problem be.


You'll need to get more information. Find an auto parts store that offers free engine code readouts and have them tell you what the engine computer has detected. This will shorten the long list of possible causes. Post again with the results - you may get to post your own solution.
I've had a bad fuel injector driver transistor in the computer (throttle body injection) and an ignition module do this to me.

My 1992 chev lumina apv van stalls everytime i put on the brakes at every red light it restarts after no codes are coming up what could it be?:


check to make sure the power brake booster is not leaking, do this by starting the van and just let it idle in park and push the brake pedal if the engine stalls or surges or you hear a sucking noise under the dash then replace the power brake booster if there is none of these systems then replace the idle control motor. GOOD LUCK

1992 lumina apv smells hot, does not register hot


White smoke means water/antifreeze entering the combustion chamber(s) or intake passages. Suspect a gasket leak somewhere (tighten all intake manifold nuts and bolts). Check all radiator and heater hoses for leakage and hose condition.

1992 Chev Lumina


I would have the car checked on the computor.Even if the engine light is off it will store the codes.When you get the codes it should point you in the right direction.I would say it's posibly the throttle position sensor.
