I DON'T EXACTLY KNOW IF YOUR PROBLEM IS THE SAME AS MY OWN, BUT I HAVE A 93 LUMINA VAN APV, AND I HAVE PROBLEMS WHERE I CAN NOT START MY VAN SOME TIMES AND I WASN'T GETTING ANY SPARK FROM MY WIRES, I HAD MY SON CRANK THE VAN WHILE I CHECKED WITH A SCREWDRIVER TO NEAR GROUND FOR A SPARK AND GOT NOTHING, I HTOUGHT I HAD A BAD COIL PACK, REPLACED IT AND GOT THE SAME RESULTS, WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, WHILE HAVING MY SON CRANK IT AGAIN, GETTING NOTHING, I GRABBED THE WIRE, THEN WHAM!!!, I GOT BIT, BY THE SHOCK! IT WAS FUNNY! WELL ANY WAY, I FOUND THAT WHEN I BANG ON MY DISRIBUTOR, WITH THE OLD COIL, WHILE MY SON CRANKS THE VAN WE CAN GET IT TO START, JUST ABOUT EVERY TIME, SO I DO KNOW WHAT EVER THE PROBLEM IS, IT HAS TO DO WITH SOMETHING IN THE DISTRIBUTOR, ALOT OF TIME IT STARTS UP IN THE MORNING OR WHEN NOT DRIVEN FOR A WHILE, SO HEAT MAY ALSO HAVE A PART TO PLAY IN IT. MAYBE A BAD MODULE, OR CONNECTION OF SORT. I'LL LET YOU JKNOW FOR SURE WHEN I GET TO MESS WITH IT AGAIN.AnswerThat is what I thought might be going bad bad on my 96 lumina, does your key have a chip in it? If so try getting it replaced. It may just be a bad key. Which at the dealer here in Michigan costs $40.
I have a Lumina too and most commonly its 3 coil packs
If it is missing it is probaly a coil pack
Need to know if it is, or not,the coupe. Also, what engine.
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.
The ignition module is located under the coil pack. Follow the spark plug wires to find the coil.
There is no distributor cap as there is no distributor. There are 3 coil packs, each coil fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
Hollander interchange says it will
there is none just coil packs
What is coil pack firing order for 1993 Lumina?"
water in the fuel bad spark plugs bad plug wires bad coil
Get a shop manual. There is no distributor. These have coil packs.
IGNITION ? ARE we talking ignition coil-ignition wires ignition switch-key & tumbler.
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.
i would have the coil packs tested
A 92 doesnt have a distributor just coil packs
check your rotor & pickup coil
This car has coil packs on it 1 coil for 2 cylinders, it goes 1 4 6 3 2 5, that is first coil is for cylinders 1 & 4 next coil for cylinders 6 & 3 next coil is for cylinders 2 & 5
If you have disributorless ignition it will be mounted under the coil pack . If you vehicle still has a distributor it will be in the dist.
Could be anything electrical. Coil. Wires Grounding WELL any wire grounding out.
According to the repair manual that I am reading, you do not have a distributor, you have coil packs (3). There is not a vacuum advance persay. The spark advance is caused by the vehicle computer.
I would say if it run ok cold but dies or has bad idle after warming up very possible the coil packs are going bad
The 3 coils are located in the front of the car, under the radiator and in the middle. Follow the spark plug wires and there they are. You will probably have to remove the oil pressure sender to access one of the coils.
Check the crank position to make sure that it is sending power to the coil pack. The inability to go forwards when the vehicle is running sounds like a problem internally with the transmission an it may need a rebuild.
check the ignition coil when it heats up it loses contact when it expands with the heat.. if you let it coll for 20 min ant it starts I would say it is the coil.
