Question about 1993 Chevrolet Lumina APV

1 Answer

Not running I have a 3.1 that quit running in traffic. I have replaced fuel pump MAF, MAP, plugs, wires and some gaskets and such from the throttle body. The coder says MAF or MAP. I suspect the computer is fried, but the book says it is behind the glove box and I cannot locate it. Help!

Usually the computer is located up under the dash, right side near the top. You know it by seeing a huge silver casing square box. Before changing this expense part, have a diagnostic test run on it for sure. Is the vehicle overheating before it quits in traffic? Before replacing the fuel pump you should have first listened to hear a slight hum for 2 seconds when turning the key to the on position before starting. If you did, then have the pressure check done on the fuel system just before the injectors. If that was about 60 psi, then the fuel pump would not need replacing.

Have you checked the cam sensor? Also does that vehicle have a "throttle position sensor"? Some cars use both MAP and MAF sensors, not sure about your particular vehicle but if it is one of those, cleaning the MAF wouldn't hurt. Good luck.

Hello! when you say you checked the MAP sensor what do you mean? Did you take voltage readings at idle ? A vacuum leak is the likely culprit, especially to the MAP...The minor shake at idle being the major clue...Send a comment...guru..saailer

I have a 1994 gmc 1500 truck with a 5.7 v8.one fuel injector is pumping fuel and the other injector is not!!!!i swapped the injectors and its not the injector.


Go to the parts store and get a noid light for your truck, plug it into the injector electrical and turn the engine over to see if there is electrical pulse, also check the fuel pressure, the pump needs 9-13 psi with the engine running. you know if there is no pulse your going to need to check the wireing first. let me know
