A relative gave me this car and after taking it to Pep Boys for repair, it stopped about two blocks away from that shop. He tried to get the company to fix it properly, but they said that they were not responsible for anything more. I am guessing about the year of the car and the engine level. He was told that he needed a replacement of the engine. If so, what would that cost?

I was wondering what the estimate would be to fix a transmission leak which seems to be caused by the gasket having been overtightened, and to see why my check engine light comes on after I am driving on the highway for a while, or over 45 mph basically.

Cooling system is continually running hot. I had the system flushed 2 years ago. 6 months later I was smelling coolant inside the car when I turned on the air or heat. had it checked and had to replace a gasket behind the drive belt. Still continue to run hot. Flushed the system again. It did have some rust other stuff. It still runs hot. Any suggestions?

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.
