1992 was the first year with the 3800. The 3.1 will have the round metal air filter housing and a 3.8 litre will have the plastic rectangular housing.

91 apv van 3 1 litre. 179. Miles.cold start noise plastic rubbing drivers area but lasts bout a couple minutes Serpin belt tension bearing alternator new.steering pump water pump old


If I think a belt driven component is making a noise, engine running, I use a long metal bar of some kind, I place the tip on component housing, the other end, I place on that bone behind my ear, it magnifies the sound. I listen to each component housing, see if I can locate the problem, that way. A mechanics stethoscope would probably work as well.
You just have to be careful not to get anything caught in belt--pulleys or fan. Safety is your responsibility.
It is possible the noise isn't coming from a belt driven component? Are you sure it isn't coming from under the dash?

No power from alternator?


You went wrong in the way of changing out one alternator for a bigger amperage one . It could have done ireparable damage . Do you have a manual for it ,,.It could be a blade fuse burned out they are like a flat piece of metal held in wth 2 nuts and washers .Check all your fuses in the fuse box first .

1994 Chevi Lumina APV (van)


If you havent replaced the battery I would start there. If the battery has a dead cell in it then it will effectively remove the charge that your alternator is putting out causing your vehicle to stop running because it has no power. I would jump start the car without the battery hook up and remove the cables and see if it runs that way. If it does you have a bad battery.

Wiring


Your most accurate reliable place to acquire a full wiring diagram would be to purchase a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual.  These are usually really detailed and are very easy to read.  
Any questions, just ask.
