Question about 1992 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

My 1992 chevy lumina will start and run for about 15 minutes. Then it just shuts off on its own. Upon restarting I have to use throttle, and it sounds like its missing and just running rough, and wont idle on its own.

I have a 1995 chevy lumina ls . i was driving down the road and came to a stop sign. it stalled out , this done it several times. then a few days later i went to go start it and it wouldnt start, i moved...


You may have a defective neutral safety switch. The switch is located on the outside if the transmission case and it is where the cable connects from the shooter inside the car. This covers the no start, the stall is likely due to a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve.

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control.
Below is a picture of the switch I mentioned.

My 1992 chevy lumina z34 dies when I come to a stop sign.


I'm pretty sure your car has an "Idle Air Control" and this may be bad or the connectors to it could be corroded.

1990 chevy lumina, idling problem... to rich.... stalling......


check egr valve for vacuum leak. pull hose from manifold. put hose in your mouth like a straw and **** on it. if the valve moves, then it's good. if it doesn't, you need a new egr valve. WARNING, they are fricking expensive! auto zone price $204. NO JOKE

92 lumina apv stalls after sitting short time


here are some signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator: the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start(usually in morning) MANY TIMES ENGINE STARTS BUT STALLS SHORTLY AFTER STARTING. a bad regulator can result in fouled spark plus, and fuel milage will decrease noticeably. the only cure is to replace regulator. what makes it fail usually it gets a tear in the diafram and it cant maintain fuel pressure. hope this helps toolman,

1992 Chevy Lumina will not start when temp is below 0 degrees


Try changing the fuel filter, water trapped in it can freeze. Its a 92 and probably time for a fuel pump. They don't like water either.(Meythonol Fuel) Always change fuel filter when adding antifreeze to fuel
