1998 Chevrolet Lumina Problems

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.

The fuel pump may fail causing engine to stall and not restart.

Can't smog my car until I replace the crankshaft as well as it resetting its self. I also know where the location is but my question is what is the best way to replace the sensor iI heard two ways the first way is lifting car unplug neg.bat cord and remove tire along with having special tools...

My low coolant light will not go off. The coolant isn't low...it stays full, so I don't assume there are any leaks. Ive replaced the sensor, and that's not it, either.

I have had my car for 9 yrs. (bought used) and have had really good service out of it. i had to put a heavy duty alternator on it. But otherwise a great all around car. Everyone I know that has a Lumina tells me they would gladly buy 1 again because they are so dependable.

To start the engine you need to step on the brake then turn the ignition then at the same time right foot on the accelerator to start the engine. Coded 0442.
