Chevrolet Lumina Maintenance and Repair



  • See post #58.

    BTW, no tools needed. :shades:
  • I need to replace the rear leaf spring rubber insulators on my 1991 Lumina. I would like to do this myself, but have never done it before. Can anyone help me with some direction? It looks like the ends of the leaf spring need to be lifted just enough to slide on the new insulators. I do not know how to do this. Does it require special tools? Or can a bottle jack be used uner the spring to raise each end? Help will be greatly appreciated.
  • Newby here.
    I have a 1995 lumina sedan. when I try to accelerate it seems to hesitate unless I depress the accelerator all the way down and downshifting.when at highway speed i depress the pedal and either nothing happens of it responds very slowly.again downshifting seems to help.

    Any suggestions and help????? thanks Larry
  • I have a 91 Lumina Euro. I am trying to replace a rear strut that has blown. I have the two bolts above the tire in the wheel well and the top bolt on the lower section out. The bottom bolt will not move. The bolt has groves on it that I am guessing are to keep it from turning. I am also guessing these same groves are whats preventing the bottom bolt from coming out. Does anyone have an idea of how to remove the bolt? The top one came out with a couple of light taps from a hammer.
  • Nevermind. I took the knuckle off and used a larger hammer to get the bolt out.
  • I have a 2000 lumina my delay and the low setting do not work on my wipers only high, and mist work. Does anyone have any ideas? Because to replace the switch you have to replace the motor and all and it's like $300
  • I need to find an abs module for my 2000 Chevy Lumina. I found one on ebay that says it fits 1996-2000 Lumina Car Assembly; except. option 9C3 and option 9C6. My problem is that I don't know where to find out what option codes my vehicle has. Can anyone help? - my vin# is 2g1wl52j5y1137349. Thank you.
  • pump shaft seal gasket goes out alot on the luminas

    when it goes out the fluid leaks out .

    it acts like that when its out of fluid . plus it lets air in which messes stuff up

    seal kit costs 9.99 just did mine last weekend

    when the seal gets really bad the fluid leaks out really fast.
  • About a month ago my fuel pump went out on my 3.1engine and after replacing it my car had a jerk
    now and then. It has gradually got worse. There is no check engine light. Any ideas
  • Did you ever replace your fuel filter?If it is getting pluged,this could explain why your pump went out to begin with.Check all grounds and hoses too.
  • I have a 1997 Lumina Sedan. Just had the transmission rebuilt at 190,000.
  • I've got a 1998 Lumina with 168K miles.

    The problem is my 17 year old son cut the corner too sharp and damaged the right rear rim on the curb. Had to replace the rim. Tire was mounted and balanced on another rim.

    However now there's a constant thump whenever I accelerate above 15 mph. At speed it almost sounds as if there's a helicopter hovering over the right rear of the car. The noise was not there prior to breaking the rim.

    I'm thinking the wheel bearings may be damaged, but I open for suggestions. Anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be?
  • I have a 95 lumina w/170K.

    I would probably put on the doughnut spare and go for a test drive. If the problem persists, you know for sure its not related to the tire/rim.
  • Put the spare on this afternoon. Unfortunately, the noise didn't change much.
  • Well, It sounds suspension/drive related for sure.
    Sorry, wish I could help.
  • It's the wheel hub bearings. They're shot.

    I have a 96 lumina, I had head problems when I bought the car. I opt to replace the motor and now that i have it want start. It doesn't seem to be getting fire. it was running fine before the new motor. everything is hooked up. Could it be that the computer needs to be re programed?
  • is it compatible with a 3.4 lumina or monte carlo to do a motor swap?
