Chevrolet Lumina Problems

Intake Manifold Gasket May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

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.

Engine Stall Or No Start Condition

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

High Pressure Power Steering Hose Can Leak Fluid

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

Need to fix rear drum brakes, do I have to buy brake shoes AND a new drum? (1 answer)

Just bought the car, found a guy to do brakes, but I have to buy the parts, so brake shoes for the rear are easy to find, but the drum is a little harder. I don't know the last time brakes have been done, and it sounds bad, but do I have to have new drums each time I switch out the brake shoes?
