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.

you likely have a leaking heater core. Is this on the inside of the vehicle? if so then it defintately is a leaking heater core

had a 95 3.1L V6 Lumina that would lose AF as well. Maybe your intake manifold gasket or head gasket are going bad. If there is unusual stuff on the oil fil cap or dipstick you have a gasket leak.

Upper intake manifold plenum leak/crack most likely. If its blowing out coolant then you probably have a bad head gasket.

For a 1989 lumina, it's about 6.25 inches from the ground to the lowest part on the car.

If the pump is leaking or noisy then assume it is failing.

i had this problem the intake manifol gasket is blowed

Oil pump driveshaft (also referred to as distributor) o-ring is bad. Replace, and oil will stop leaking there.

A 50/50 diluted mixture of DEX-COOL. I would recommend Havoline. You can get that at any parts store.

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.

Please clarify your question. Is the plug on top of the engine or the car? Is it leaking water, gasoline, or oil?

I have a 1990 3.1 and what it turned out to be was the head gasket was leaking now it runs fine

if you need a good ground. you can use a good bolt under hood or similar.

It is very possible that the throttle plate is dirty and causing the throttle to hang up.

Mix half and half with distilled water (can buy pre-mixed) and pour into the overflow bottle up to the full mark.

My 98 Lumina had the same issue. Found out that the Coolant opening that connects the engine block to the timing cover leaks! This is just behind the belt tensioner. Have to remove the timing cover and in my case, I used High-Temp gasket maker, because the machine surfaces were not flat causing this area to leak. I would suggest not to use a gasket, but instead use the High-Temp silicone! ~Steve

i think you disconck the ground cable from the battery for at least 30 seconds
