Question about 1994 Chevrolet Lumina APV

1 Answer

My 1994 chevy lumina apv heater motor keeps turning on and off as i drive down the road even when the switch is turned off and some times i have to unplug the motor because it won't shut off or i go back to the van and the motor has started on it's own. I replaced the motor and the main control unit, (the push buttons) and this didn't help, now the motor dose not turn on and the rear heater motor woks fine. also before this problem the vents would be turned on and the air flow would change to the recurculate possition, on it's own, then back while i dove or the van was comming to a stop. what is up with this, or should i just shoot and kill the van.

Yes it means the clutch pack or seal is out and has to come out and apart you can buy a rebuild kit for $150.00 thats all seals clutches and bands and you would need help in order to rebuild it, the rebuilding would take 8 hours for a trained mechanic and 2.5 to 3 hours to get it out and back in again.If you need the information on where to buy parts and have them shipped I can help you out on that part. yo will need some inner and outter snap ring plyers to do it. and if you let it go to long you will damage the output shaft and that gets real epensive. was the fluid brown and smelled like onions? Hey by the way rate me since I am giving you all this free info.if you get me in a live chat I can give you all the things you will need to know and how to do everything.

SOURCE: radiator 93 lumina apv

Drain the system. Remove the upper radiator cover and the dual cooling fans (4 bolts and an electrical connector). Disconnect the transmission cooler lines and the upper and lower hoses.. The radiator should freely pull straight up and out. Reverse the process to install the new radiator.

When's the lst time a major tune up was complete? You may just need some maintenance. When I say major I mean the following Spark plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, pcv vlave, check the EGR valve and replace if needed, and inspect/replace drivebelt(if needed). I had an EGR clog on mine and it would lose alot of power, sometimes stall. Also check that your fuel injectors are working proply. You should have a nice cone spray of fuel coming out. You will also want to make sure that your spark plugs are correctly gapped. Your local auto supply store should be able to tell you the correct gap.
Hope this helps.

95 Chevy lumina van, heat on won't turn off. A/c

Hi wodermom26,

Your Lumina APV is a clone of the Pontiac Transport and Oldsmobile APV's which all have identical Heater & A/C controls. The Heater & A/C controls usually wear out mechanically causing no control of temperature. This is a difficult repair and is best made by a dealers ASE Certified Technician. A/C may require re-charging and or possible replacement of the hoses which carry the refrigerant as they become porous and leak. Additionally, the Compressor and its Clutch may possibly require replacement.

The High beams are controlled by pushing the Turn Signal switch forward toward the Instrument panel and have a momentary "Flash to Pass" function by pulling the Turn Signal Lever upward toward the steering wheel and return to Low Beam upon release of the turn signal Lever. If neither function of the Beam selector lights the High Beams it is pssible that the Headlamp bulbs are burned out or open connections in the wiring harnesses. Do you have an owners manual for your Lumina? If so it has information regarding the Multi-Functions of the Turn Signal Lever.

1994 Chevi Lumina APV (van)

If you havent replaced the battery I would start there. If the battery has a dead cell in it then it will effectively remove the charge that your alternator is putting out causing your vehicle to stop running because it has no power. I would jump start the car without the battery hook up and remove the cables and see if it runs that way. If it does you have a bad battery.

1995 chevy Lumina, 3.1. Noisy blower motor on 3 and 4. Have air flow on all settings. Would like to avoid motor replacement. OK to remove and clean impeller?

Sorry friend, the noise is from a worn out bearing and there is nothing that we can do other then replace the blower motor. This would be a good time to replace it since when the weather turns cold the nois will get worst and then total blower failure. Easier to replace in the summer then witner in the cold. Good luck friend.

Wipers do not work Sometimes

Hello, This is usually one of two problems.

1. The wiper motor has gotten weak or a dead spot in the motor windings. this would cause it to not start depending on where the motor stopped last. The motor is usually a easy change.

2. The other things it could be is you wiper switch has a bad connection or just in need of replacement. This could be a harder job depending on how much of the column you need to take apart to get the lever switch out.

I would lean toward number 1 its usually the more common problem. I hope my answer at least gets you in the right direction. I hope you have a great weekend:>)
