Chevrolet Lumina QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I drove 3-4 miles with hand brake on. Started smelling burnt and suddenly there was smoke coming out by my left rear tire. What do I need to do to make sure brakes weren't permanently damaged? Thank you
Is the speed control sensor a dealer only item?This is an automatic transmission, where is the sensor?
where is solenoid on lumina and how do i change it
key turns back and forth and will pull out and not turn car off .
The brake pedal is hard to push. does not seem like power brakes. everything seems fine, power bosster holds vacuum, calipers move freely, brakes bled. sometimes in reverse a loose brakes for a second like a gulp of air in the lines then it catches again. my mechanic is at a loss.
This is a current problem.
initially, my car would not run nor would it start upon reaching operating temperature(warmed up). started off by changing fuel filter. Had ICM checked and it tested positive. Checked fuel pressure and found it to be mid/low 40's. i was told this is not sufficient pressure for this particular car. changed fuel pump and pressure spiked to 90 for about 5 minutes. Gas started flowing out of intake pretty heavily(changed fuel pressure regulator). fuel pressure is back down to low 40s and car still wont start. will fire if using starting fluid,( only tried this once)but will not run. is the fuel pump i got at the store a bad pump? its a bosch. I have been scratching my head trying to figure out what the heck is wrong with my car. what is the required fuel pressure? and any other ideas would be more than welcome
96 Lumina with 161K. Over the past week I when I let the wheel go, it will jerk to the left about 10 degrees and then return to center very quickly. This happens constantly but is more pronounced at lower speeds. I also hear a thump-thump-thump concurrent with the wheel movement. It is not RPM dependent nor does it happen with braking.
The car likely needs alignement again and new front tires. Anything else this may be?
When I push the accelorator down sometimes it takes a second to get going other times it works normal. Could it be my fuel filter that is causing that, or could there be another reason?
Intermittently my 94 Lumina won't start. I have good spark etc. The car runs great, when it’s running and it will always start right up in the morning or after sitting. The fuel pump is a bit noisy but I have 35psi, at the rail, I think that’s within spec. It doesn't seem to matter how far the car is driven. Sometimes it will run fine for days, yesterday I pulled it into the garage from the street... It started fine and then wouldn't re start till an hour or so later. I did the same today, but now it starts every time. I seem to get a lot of pressure build up in the tank at times but that is also intermittent. Also I think this seems to happen more when the tank is full or near full but my son drives the car most of the time so I could be guessing on that. I’m putting in a new pump and filters (because of the noise) but I’m not convinced that the pump is going to cure the problem.
Oh, I have good spark when the car isn't starting, no check engine light on or stored codes, checked all of the wiring and connections back to the pump, replaced the fuel pump relay, tried the slap test on the ECM, and inspected the ignition switch. Everything seems to be checking ok.
Any advice would be great.
my fuel pump went out so i changed it and now the car almost seems like it has bad gas or something, it starts sometimes runs for a minute or two then dies or sometimes it doesnt crank i dont know what to do
how to change front turn signal bulb?
There are two pressure sensors on the brake peddle arm which activate the brake lights. One of these has failed. Where do I find replacement modules?
ok I've tested the battery and starter they r both good changed out the ignition switch relay with a new one but when u turn the key all the lights come on but the car still doesn't turn over security light keeps blinking what could be wrong?
Leak of and orange colored fluid and water are leaking from the manifold and we were told hoses would need replace as well as other things.

the car will start and then stops after about 5 minutes also reves up then goes back to normal,sounds rough. When trying to start it sometimes it takes minutes or even days before it will start again.

I need to know what it would cost to repair the transmission on my car. The torque converter went out.
Car doesn't always start up.
I have been told I need bushings. I don't know what those are, and no one seems to be able to tell me except that in order to get them repaired it will cost me over $1,000. The car runs fine.
Two weeks ago I had a complete tune-up to the tune of $457.00. The Service Engine Soon ("SES") light was on at the time when I brought it in for the tune-up. I was told at the time that the light might come back on but I should bring it back and they would reset it.
So, today I brought it back as the SES light is back on. I was now told that the code that comes up is P1870 and that it has nothing to do with the tune-up but that it's a transmission problem.
What does P1870 mean with regard to my car? And what is the estimated cost of whatever fix it needs.
This is upsetting to me because I thought if the light came back on it simply had something to do with the tune-up which is how it was phrased in a way -- you know, "If it comes back on, just bring it back and we'll reset it." It made me think it had to do with the tune-up. Now, I'm told it's a transmission problem. I've dealt with this guy before and never had a problem, so now I don't know what to think.
Another question. Should I bring it to the Chevy repair people instead here in town? Do you think that would be better?
