There can be several reasons. Bad ground cable or coroded terminals is one. Either of these can happen at the battery or at the starter motor. Another reason is the starter motor. If the bendix system does not operate correctly the starter shaft will not move fully forward to engage the fly wheel, thus causing a grinding sound since the gears are mot fully meshed. Since it does not always do this for you I would eleminate that there are damaged cogs (gears) on the flywheel. But it is possible that the engine start up position might be occasionally at that point. I would suggest removing the starter motor and have it tested. The shaft that moves in and out might by worn or even dirty and not functioning properly.
Several things could be making the Lumina growl. Check the belts and pulleys on the front of the engine. Check the engine mounts as well. Either of these areas can cause the problem of the growling noise.
My 1990 Lumina 3.1 had the same problem and it was caused by the crank sensor.
Sometimes they are behind the airfilter compartment.
I believe on that model you press the seek/scan buttons while turning the dial.
Freeze plugs in a 96 Lumina are located at several places on the engine block. They are designed to expand and burst in a freeze instead of the engine being damaged.
Your Lumina 2001 engine light might come on while the radiator fan is working because the fan is turning too slowly, is damaged, or is not cooling the engine correctly.
stand behind it, stick the key in the keyhole and turning it left or right should do the trick. Next?
Lumina village is in Romania.
You must turn the wheel back and forth while turning the key. This will unlock the key and allow it to turn.
The 95 Lumina with a 3.1 engine does not have a temperature sending unit. Instead, the dash temp gauge is controlled by the engine coolant temp sensor. This sensor is located on the driver's side, top of the engine.
The main pulley on which the serpentine belt goes on in a 1997 Chevy Lumina LTZ is the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft pulley plays a role in the wheels turning and powering the alternator and power steering pump.
wrap the belt around the pully to hold pully still

No as Lumina does not appear in Sonic X.
Hopefully you mean a 1992 Lumina, and yes, most starters are standard.
