Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

1995 chevrolet lumina van 3.1 will crank over but will not start

I got the van free from the church it had a problem starting and stalling sometimes. My brother thought it was the fuel injectors so he changed them did not fix the problem. I had to spray starting fluid to get it to run then it would run fine. Now it just cranks over but will not start there seams to be no gas and no spark. I have changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, pressure regulator, coil, and the TPS. I also got a brain from the junkyard and changed that to no avail. Any ideas as to what it could be?

    I now have bought a new brain, pickup coil, knock sensor,plugs, spark regulator module, and ignition module. I now have gas but still no spark. Any ideas as to what could be stopping the spark.

I have 1995 Chevrolet Lumina van 3.8L V6 it snapped the serpentine belt, over heated know it will not start. The belt rapped a round the. crankshaft pulley

It overheated due to belt loss. Is one of the belt driven accessories locked up? This will slow cranking down and I have seen cars not start due to this. Try to start with belt removed.
If still no start, then you need to check for fuel and spark.

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

3.1 1993 lumina starts fine as it warms up it starts skipping and then cuts off. stalls and will not crank until it cools off

Unplug the temperature sensor and see what happens. If no change then the temp sensor plug maybe plugged somewhere it should not be. Sometimes it isb possible there are missmatched sensor connectors.

1995 Chevy Van Cannot start after shutting it off without jumping

Check the crank sensor probably when you replaced the timing belt you could have either not put the crank signal ring in correctly or damaged the crank sensor.

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.
