You don't mention where the smoke is coming from or what color the smoke is. If the smoke is black and coming out of the tail-pipe, the engine is running rich and you probably need to do at least a minor tuneup and change the spark plugs, inspect the distributor cap and rotor and replace if necessary, and check the spark plug wires. If the smoke is blue and coming out of the tail-pipe, the engine is burning oil. Usually this is caused by worn piston rings and an overhaul may be necessary. If the smoke is blue and coming from under the hood, you probably have a bad valve cover gasket that is leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold or pipe. Replacement of the valve cover gasket will cure this. Good luck, hope it's not blue smoke coming out of the tail-pipe. Intake manifold gaskets are very common and expensive if put off.-BClear.
it could be your head gasket
your float could be stuck
Could be low on coolant.
One reason a 1993 Chevy Lumina may turn over but not start could be the battery. It may also be the spark plugs.
there is a short some where in the electrical system... or a bad battery.
Not overly familiar with the Lumina, but you might have accidentaly disconected them at the bus, or the CD player could be drawing to much power(unlikely)
could be your alternator
A 1997 Chevy Lumina with a 3.1 that will not start, turns over, and doesn't spark; most likely has a defective ignition system. The coil may be damaged or wire providing power could be damaged.
If your 1990 Lumina has gas in the oil pan, then there could be a stuck injector flooding the engine. There can also be a blown head gasket. Driving the vehicle can destroy the engine.
If you notice it when you first start the engine, it could be bad valve seals and/or loose guides.
Could be the starter.
It could be brakes, bearings or something else altogether.
You could, but it would probably be a bit more effective just to fix it the right way.
There are many things that would cause a 1999 Chevy Lumina to stall. The car could be too low on fuel, have a leak in the fuel line, or an old fuel pump or filter.
Changing the ignition coil on a 1993 Chevy Lumina could be a hard and daunting task to someone who is unfamiliar with cars. It would be much easier and faster to take the car to a mechanic where they would have a better understanding and knowledge of the car and the parts it needs.
If your 6.5 Chevy diesel smokes white smoke when you first start it up, it could just need warming up. It could also indicate an issue with the motor.
I have a 1990 3.1 and what it turned out to be was the head gasket was leaking now it runs fine
i would have the coil packs tested
Could be you need a new fuel idle motor. Or you need new spark plugs
He smokes so he COULD get it. That idiot smokes 20 a day
1993 Chevy lumina: check all vacume lines for leaks and or splits around intake.AnswerIf you are not actually moving (just revving up the engine), it is normal for the engine stop at 4000 rpm. (governored)
I have a 92 lumina euro that did that and it turned out to be my crank sensor. The problem could also be the Torque Converter Clutch, bad plugs and wires, distributer cab, low idle could cause this to.
I had a similar problem turns out the Alternator was bad.

you have to buy the car manual to find the wiring diagram!!! local library should have the chilton manuals, you could look there.
