Question about 1992 Chevrolet Lumina APV

1 Answer

1992 Lumina APV van: Car was idle for few months. While trying to get it started I was able to pres the accelerator. Then after repeating it it again it got stuck in the upper position. I could not depress the accelerator and could not start the engine. When I removed filter and tried to move the carburetor valve linkage by hand, it appeared to be stuck inside the carburetor. What can I do? What are my options? How much will it cost to have it fixed?

    Thank you, it worked. Indeed, the butterfly was glued. The car is running now.

First things first..
disconnect the cables from the butterfly and figure out if you have a stuck cable or a stuck butterfly, if its a cable, it just needs replaced. if its the butterfly then you need to get a can of carb cleaner and clean the black gue on the back side of the butterfly off, make sure when you unstick the butterfly that you push it in the right direction it will be slightly tilted and you can tell what way to go.
If you need anything else feel free to ask.

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

The 1992 Lumina APV does not have a crankshaft position sensor. If your car has a tachometer in the instrument panel it gets it's "signal" from the ignition coil.

1994 chevy lumina van. It will start and idle but stalls when gas


Try replacing the throttle position sensor. I had the same problem in my truck. It would start and run for a bit but as soon as you let off of the pedal, it would die. Try it and see if it works.
