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.
trying to fix simular problem
Remove the radiator and take it to a radiator shop.
Take it to the garage.
$150-200 u need upper and lower intake gaskets new o-rings for injectors radiator fluid and you should change the oil
replace spark plugs and wires
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.
If your lucky, get one from junkyard or from a cheap parts car.
1999 Chevy lumina, won't start, security light comes on ,can jump the starter but motor will only run for a short time , strong battery ? tried different keys , no good ? help
CHECK YOUR FUSE
Go to the parts store and ask for a new one.
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.
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.
You could, but it would probably be a bit more effective just to fix it the right way.
a bad module .if it cuts off and cranks in about 15 to 20 minutes change your module What module are you talking about please? I have the same problem. You shoud change Idle Air Control Valve. It will fix the problem.
possibly low on freeon. ** Fairly cheap fix from the local auto parts store.
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.
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.
how do you fix your lighting problem with your 94 chevy cavalier z24 you haveno tail lights dash lights or parking lights
Check for power and ground at the tank. If it is okay then the sending unit is most likely the cause.

Replace, flush, or repair, depending on what the problem is.
