1990 Chevrolet Lumina Reviews
I used to own this car. great car, although over the years I had to replace the head gaskets and other normal maintenance things it had 232000 miles on it then the main computer went out. had a new one installed then found out that it was 2 injectors that fouled which took out the computer. I decided not to have the car fixed as it cost more than the car was worth so I had the computer taken out, which I still have and junked the car. So I have a new computer worth 250.00 that I would sell for 150.00 if anyone needs one. it also fits other models and years. write to 515 3rd ave nw, west fargo nd 58078 if interested. thanks
