My 94 Lumina APV (3.8L) would not start (when warm) - cranked but acted as if no spark or fuel. Mechanic replaced computer @ $350 (said too many error codes to diagnose problem) - did not resolve problem. Then he replaced the camshaft position sensor (CMP) @ $125 - that solved the problem. PB

Ticking in an engine generally refers to the valves. If ticking is apparent on a 1994 Chevy Lumina tighten the valves to factory specifications.

Either a bad starter or the engine control system trips and thinks the van is over heating when really it isnt.

The car will start and run poorly in the limp mode and the check engine light will illuminate.

A small radiator leak can cause antifreeze to leak on your 1998 Chevy Lumina when there are not any spots on the ground. A pinhole in a hose can also cause this.

There are several things that can cause your Chevy Lumina fan to not work properly. The most common cause is a bad ground wire. Check the ground wire and make sure it is tight and free of corrosion.

The temperature light comes on in a 1992 Chevy Lumina when the temperature of the engine reaches the boiling point. The light may also come on if the transmission gets too hot. Usually a leak in the radiator system will cause a loss of fluid and lead to the temperature light, but it could be anything and must be checked.

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.

there is a short some where in the electrical system... or a bad battery.

Replacing the water pump will not cause the check engine light to come on. Either it is a coincidence or you have accidentally disconnected a wire or damaged a sensor somehow.

Dodge does not use the acronym ICM. If you are referring to the engine computer, ECM or PCM, then yes.

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

Yes, but it will cause body damage to the vehicle, produce a lot of noise, and the tires will wear very quickly. Also, ride quality, handling, and braking efficiency will be extremely poor.

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.

You need three things to start an engine. Gas, spark and air but, they all have to be in the right place at the right time. So, I would say you have a timing problem. It may be something serious or it may be something less serious like an engine compter or something like that.
