If a 1990 Chevy Lumina APV engine quit while driving will crank but not start is it electrical or gas related?
Hey Richard==It could be either. You have to find out yourself. Pull a plug wire and see if you have spark and spray starting fluid in the throtle body to see if you need fuel. Listen at the filler cap and see if you hear the fuel pump run for 2 seconds whenyou turn the ignition on. If you don't it could be the relay which is under the hood lt the relay center. If the relay is good, the fuel pump could be bad. Check it out. GoodluckJoe
ANSWER.....I fixed my 1990 Lumina Euro. It was the CRANK SENSOR. It's in a hard to find place; got it from under the car, its in between the oil pan and the trany. At the top of the oil pan in the block on a downward angle. There are two other thinges in the block just above it to the right. (looking from under the car) JZ
What is wrong if everything electrical starts to short out while driving and the engine is overheated?
My 1999 Pontiac Montana would seem to "skip a beat" while driving. It then started stalling and restarting, all while driving at highway speeds. My mechanic found that an electrical cable that carried an engine sensor signal was leaning against a hot part of the engine. The cable insulation had melted or worn through, causing intermittent shorts. The shorts confused the engine computer, which then stalled the engine. He simply rerouted the cable and all…
Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on a 1999 Chevy lumina 3.1L engine and do you have a diagram?
Technically nothing. They are both internal combustion engines. One is driving a transmission and a vehicle and the other is driving a generator. A generator is used to to produce DC current, that is driven by an electrical AC motor, Hench the term Motor-Generator applies. An engine uses it's own source of fuel, Gasoline, for it's power source. Never call a ENGINE a MOTOR..........
