what kind of antifreeze does my chevy lumina need

what kind of antifreeze does my chevy lumina need

There are two kinds of coolant that can be found in this car. Look to see what color it is, either pink or green. It came stock with Dexcool antifreeze. This is a pink colored antifreeze made for aluminum engines. If it is green DO NOT put pink in there. NEVER mix pink and green coolants together. There is no differences among the green coolants. All will work but some are better than others. Also there are 50/50 ready-to-use coolant gal. containers. This has water already added in the coolant. If you get one that does not have water added you will need to add water. These are usually better for your buck.

Vehicle anti-theft (VAT) system is not getting proper reading from the ignition switch. Your key has a resistor built into the head of the key (a silver bar on a black backing). Shine up this bar with some fine steel wool on both sides of the key. Possibly the wiring in the steering column that leads to the VAT module has gone bad or the connections in the ignition switch that mate up with the key's resistor no longer connect properly. End result: the starter and fuel injection system remain dead when all else seems normal............Security light on dash will stay on/flashing. There will be a 3 minute dead/reset period between each unsuccessful start attempt.

How to replace a waterpump on a 1999 chevy lumina?

How to replace a waterpump on a 1999 chevy lumina?

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

The waterpump is located on passenger side of the car. Its location if you were standing looking from the passenger side at the engine is at the top right of the engine.There is a pully at the top of the engine that has 4 10mm headed bolts should be a non grooved pully.Loosen the bolts on that pully with the belt on once you loosen these bolts but do not remove them just yet.Using a 3/8 drive ratchet find the belt tensioner and release the belt making sure you remember the belt routing.Typically the the belt routing is printed on a plastic shroud that is just above the waterpump. Once you have removed the belt take out the 4 bolts that you previously loosened.Remove that pully now and the waterpump is right behind that. Sometimes the pully sticks a bit so you may need to put something behind it to gently dislodge it.There are 5 bolts on the waterpump the head of these bolts are 5/16 or 8mm remove the the five bolts using a quarter inch drive ratchet.Once this is done you may need to dislodge the pump.A dead blow hammer works well or a block of wood and a hammer could be used in a pinch.This should not require alot of force.Just a few taps should do it you are just breaking the gasket seal at this point.Now that the old pump is removed the old gasket needs to be removed from the waterpump housing. make sure all old gasket material is removed so the new one will seal properly.Take out the replacement pump and and line the new gasket on the waterpump once you have done this remove the gasket so you can adhere the gasket in place with a thin coat of rtv or weatherstrip adhesive.Now you ready to reverse the process to put it back on.Just make sure to line up the five bolt holes and your ready to go. Hope this helps.

change the transmission filter and

change the transmission filter and fluid on 1999 chevy lumina

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

Hello greenwave.

Here is the procedure for your job. Make sure when you lift the car it is supported safely.
Have a large area oil drain pan handy. It will take up to 5 or so quarts to refill. remember not to overfill, it's easier too add a little at a time than to take it out afterwards. Also remember that the fluid expands when it's hot so only go to the cold fill line when adding if it has one.
I generally just loosen the last bolt a little bit and let it drain slowly to avoid a mess.

Removal Procedure
Remove the oil pan (24) and gasket (25). Refer to Oil Pan Replacement.

  1. Remove the filter (100). Remove the lip ring seal (101) pressed into the case only if replacement is necessary.
  2. Inspect the screen for the following foreign material:
    • Inspect for metal particles.
    • Inspect for clutch facing material.
    • Inspect for rubber particles.
    • Inspect for engine coolant.
  1. Determine the source of the contamination if foreign material is evident.
  2. Correct the source of the contamination.
  3. Use solvent to clean the screen.
  4. Blow-dry the screen.

If removed, install a new seal (101).

cannot find the a/c recharge

cannot find the a/c recharge port on a 1999 Chevrolet Lumina (3.1 V6) Where is is it located and how to access it?

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

The low pressure evaporative port (green cap) near the firewall,The re-charge port is usually BEFORE the compressor or ON the compressor itself.
Any HOSE or PORT coming out of the compressor is the High side.
There are two ports on the A/C lines. One high pressure (bigger) and one low pressure (smaller). You will add the R143a into the Low Pressure port (smaller port) on the A/C line coming out of the A/C compressor (one that is belt driven).The compressor is usually located in the middle front of the engine.Follow the serpentine belt, the long belt that goes around the components.

----------For ac recharge port:-- Follow the larger hose from the compressor Could be near the drier at the passenger side firewall its located between the evaporator and compressor.--------the other possibility is -- A/C service ports are located on the drivers side of the vehicle in the front, right next to the battery, which is located under the windshield washer reservoir, it will kindof take some contorting to get to it, but thats where GM put it . Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
