    Same problem but with a 3.4L coupe. I've changed the Plugs and Timing Belt. I get spark and I get fuel. Would any of the Shaft Sensors cause this?

Check that you're getting spark to your plugs and fuel to your injectors. If so, my first guess would be to check your timing belt.

My 1990 chevy lumina will start up for few seconds then die. it wont stay running for more than 5 seconds but will starts up every time. when i give it gas it dies immediately


Sounds like low fuel pressure. Check your fuel pressure. If you have the 3.1 liter engine and just turn the key to the "on" position you should have around 41 - 47 PSI. When running it should have about 31 - 44 PSI. If you have the 2.5 liter engine you should have 26 - 32 PSI of pressure when running. I hope this helps and good luck.

1998 chevy lumina driving down the road and it just died. it will turn over but wont start. Something with the fuel system? Changed filter.


There are literally dozens of thing that could cause a car to die and not start again. If could be fuel related: fuel pump, fuel filter, fuses, bad gas, etc. It could be spark related: crankshaft sensor, ignition module, coil pack, etc. It could be mechanical: timing chain (or belt), broken internal engine parts, etc. My point is, it is impossible to determine what's wrong without further diagnostis. I recomend you take the car to a mechanic you can trust and have it looked at. Stay away from the big chain stores and find an independant garage.

1991 chevy lumina 3.1 liter.problem started it was fine then went 3 blocks and it died stopping at sign.had problems getting it back started and it drive fine for a minute and lost power to like 20 mph but...


It is one of 2 things fuel pump or Crank Shaft Position Sensor. Best bet would be the Crank Shaft Sensor, and what that does is tell the computer where the crank is and when to fire the right plug at the right time
