Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

I have a 95' lumina,recently the car started acting funny.when i go to start the car it clicks once or twice before starting and once it starts sometimes it only stays on for a sec then turns off again.Once its running its good for a while but then if its idling it starts to sound like its losing power and is going to stall.At that point i either give it some gas an power will come back or it will just turn off. PLease help everyone one else thinks its either starter or fuel pump. Thanks R.s

SOURCE: 95 lumina dies and then starts back up and runs fine.

Electrical problem can be the most frustrating and difficult to diagnois especially when you are not phsyically at the vehicle. I will attempt to point you in the direction you should be looking. Right off the bat it sounds as if you are running low on power when the demand is high. First thing to suspect is the battery. For some reason it is low on electrical power.
Next thing is to figure out why. The first thing I would check are the cable ends. Are they corroded? It may not look as if the are, but they still could be. Clean them thouroghly.At times, when they are corroded that may be enough to stop the flow of current from the alternator to keep the battery charged up. If they look good, you may want to put your battery on a charger. Pay attention to the meter and see how much the battery is down. If it taking a lot of charge it could be it needs replacing, but charge it up and see how it works. Remember when charging a battery, first remove the caps and see if the cells are low on water. If they are your battery is probably the culprit. When a battery starts using water it's usually because some of the plates have over heated and warped, which causes them to touch each other and short out. BTW, when charging a battery make sure you remove the caps during charging. So leave them off after you check the water, AND if you need water use only distilled water. You can buy it just about anywhere, grocery store, Walmart, KMart, etc.
Check your altanator belt and make sure it is tight and not streached out. That could also be why the battery is not keeping up with the demand.
If that dosen't cure it, next take your battery in and have it tested and see if it is up to snuff. I hope this helps you and please let me know through your rating of this advice.

SOURCE: 1989 corvette: battery losing voltage, hard to start and stalls

I dont know much about corvettes But if the voltage regulator is in the altenator it could be sticking drawing voltage even if the car is not running. Dis connect the plug in overnight and see if it starts in the morning if it does the regulator is sticking shut replace the alternator

SOURCE: once up to temp will lose power and eventually stall

It could be a bad coil pack breaking down as the temp goes up It could be a catalatic converter plugged up It could be a number of sensors. You said the engine light has been on take it somewhere and find out what code turned on the light even if the light is not on the code is stored

My 95 lumina just recently started having trans problems ,at highway speeds it sometimes starts to shudder.It will only do this when highway driving ,never in city driving. I sure could use some help......


Hi,
You need to ensure that it is cooling properly and maybe give it a service as it may have a blocked transmission filter.
But check the overheating first then do the service.
Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks

97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30


I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

On my 1999 Chey Lumina. My brake lights wont come on except for the one in the back window


I was having similar issues with my '95 Lumina. It started out with the passenger side brake light not working and the turn signal switch on the column acting funny.
Eventually, someone pulled-up next to me and told me that I had no rear lights at all.
It turned out to be the turn signal switch in the sterring column.
Hope this helps.

How old and what quality is your battery? If you have the original or an aftermarket battery in it, make sure it's within the rated life before you start messing with other things.

Stalls when under load "driving"


Check the ignition module. My car would run fine until it came up to full temp and then run bad. I continued driving the car while trying to diagnose the problem. It got worse and then one day the car stalled as if it ran out of gas (still had plenty in the tank). I was able to coast it into a parking spot and called for a ride. Upon returning, I tried to start it, started right up and ran fine. On the way home it started acting up again (once it was up to temp). It turned out to be the ignition module.

Starter has no power in start 95 Lumina would not start after shutting off. All accessories work. I also jumped the solenoid and it turns but the starter doesnt.


You are reading this wrong...solenoids don't turn. They activate the starter...that turns. Check your battery connections and battery/charging system. The starter requires far more power than anything else in the car, so those items working won't tell you much.

Car won't start. Ticking noise under dash. Battery is ok. Happened once before and the next day it started.


had the same prob on my toyota. thought it was a bad starter. changed it twice. Turned out to be a slightly loose battery connection. I tightened it, and it hasn't happened since.
