1998 Chevy Lumina 3.1 overheating - top radiator hose collapses on throttle, then opens up when you let off.


With the engine cold remove the radiator cap. Start the engine. Watch the coolant. If you see bubbles constantly perkulating out of the coolant than you most likely have a head gasket that has failed. If you don't see a constant perkulation of air bubbles it probably wouldn't hurt to replace the upper hose and see if the problem is resolved.

How do i replace my spark plug wires in the rear of my 97 chevy lumina? do i have to take the engine mounts off and pull it back?


You have to remove the torque strut, at top and
your front/radiator side and either pry the engine
to the front of car or buy the tool that goes into the
strut mount for that purpose. It draws the engine away
from firewall

How do i replace my spark plug wires in the rear of my 97 chevy lumina? do i have to take the engine mounts off and pull it back?


No, you don't have to remove the engine mounts and pull the engine back, and this is inadvisable. It can be a challenge to get to the plugs on the firewall side of the engine. Here are some suggestions.

1. You can try to reach the plugs blindly by feel. This can be frustrating and time consuming, but patience and persistence can pay off.
2. You can remove obstructing components such as the coil/ignition module assembly, alternator, vacuum hoses, etc. as applicable.

How to replace a starter on a 1998 Lumina


On the 3100 engine, the starter can be found by looking between the radiator and the engine block toward the bottom. Disconnect the battery's negative cable 1st, then two wires on one terminal and a smaller wire on another terminal on the starter. You can get more room to work by disconnecting a plastic socket just above the starter. Move the wire housing that runs parallel to the starter toward the radiator. Remove one short 15mm bolt from underneath the starter on the radiator side. From underneath the car on the other side of the bottom of the starter you will have to remove a portion of the flywheel plastic cover by removing one small screw and loosening another to expose the longer mounting 15mm bolt. The starter should come out

Radiator Cooling fans pull or push air (93 Chevy Lumina 3.1 L) ?


A radiator fan is designed to pull air to pull air through the radiator to help cool it, while blowing the air on back across the engine to try to assist once again at keeping the unit running cool as to not over heat.
