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.
