Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina
After driving about 10-15 miles (both hwy and city), I stopped, turned off car, returned to car 15- 20 minutes later, it would not start after repeated attempts. It seemed to crank OK (but maybe rough (?)) but would not fire up. 15 minutes later, it started as normal and ran fine the rest of the day or 2. A few days later it started OK the first time that day and I drove a mile or less to the store, turned it off to go inside, and a few minutes later it started again OK. I drove another mile or two and turned it off. 1-1/2 to 2 hours later it would not start. Sounded the same as a few days before, but after waiting it would not start. I tried it again yesterday and then today. It would not start, but it cranks just the same as explained above. What are the chances a new fuel filter will fix it. I bought it March 2004 at a state auction; it was a police car. March 2008 (125,000 miles) replaced the engine, with a used Buick engine that had about 78,000 miles. At that time, also replaced spark plugs and wires, the idle control valve and the air filter. That was 5,000 miles ago. I replaced the air filter in the summer and I got an oil change about 1,000 miles (1 month) ago I have never replaced the fuel filter.
