Chevrolet Lumina Problems

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.

I've owned my lumina 4 just over 1 year (used), had 74,000 miles and 1 owner. I've had to replace the starter. Tires.

I HAVE A 1990 LUMINA EURO 3.1 AND IT HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT TROUBLE! I HAVE REPLACED FUEL PUMP, FUEL FILTER, BATTERY, SPARK PLUGS, CRANK SHAFT SENSOR, AND MANY OTHER PARTS, NOW THE CAR WON'T EVEN START.
Car is pretty much trouble free. Long time no problems.
