Some of the Lumina radiators have oil lines and transmission lines hooked to them if this is the case with your car then there maybe a crack in the plastic tank on the side of the radiator I would recommend checking that before replacing the head gasket much cheaper and a lot easier if you bring it to a shop it usually will run about $125 for a replacement tank parts and labor included; if you do it on your own it will probably cost about $50. If it has no oil lines connected to the radiator then it is most likely the head gasket, and well that's not gonna be fun.

I have a 1993 Chevy lumina van that has heat but doesn't have a fan how do I fix the fan?

The only way to fix that problem is to buy a new radiator. Your old one has cracked around the fitting.

If the windshield wipers are not working on a 1990 Chevy Lumina, the problem could be with the wiper motor, the wiper motor relay, or a fuse. The least expensive fix to this problem will be replacing the fuse if it is blown.

Remove the radiator and take it to a radiator shop.

It depends on the exact problem. If it's that both brake lights in the back do not work and the middle one works, it could be your turn signal switch.

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.

First you have to diagnose what the problem is before you can fix it.

take apart the dash, and reset it to park when the car is in park.

You could, but it would probably be a bit more effective just to fix it the right way.

To fix the cigarette lighter on a Chevy Cavalier, check the fuse first. Next check the wiring and the cigarette lighter itself for a problem.

My 1990 Honda Civic Hatchback had a similar problem where it overheated on a seemingly random basis. I first replaced the thermostat, but that did not fix the problem. Then I replaced the water pump, again with no positive result. Finally, I replaced the radiator, which fixed the problem. As it turned out, the radiator had pinhole leaks that caused the problem. Also, when it comes to a leaking radiator, I do not suggest the 'quick fix' of additives to the radiator water that plug holes and stop leaks. These additives can cause more problems than they resolve. The best solution is to replace the radiator.

Check for power and ground at the tank. If it is okay then the sending unit is most likely the cause.

The parts that are needed to fix a car radiator depends on what is wrong with the radiator. It would be best to have the radiator fixed by a professional.
