Why will your 91 Lumina Euro 31L turn over but not start if it has spark?

My son's 91 sedan would crank over nicely, but never try to start. We sprayed a short shot of ether into the air intake and it started instantly. This proved that we had ignition, but not getting fuel to any cylinders. A shop tested for the electric pulses to the injectors and saw none. He then disconnected the wireing plug to the one injector that is accessable, and the engine started and ran on 5 cylinders. That one injector was shorted and was killing the pulses to all the rest of the injectors. If the bad one was one of the ones that are buried under the cover, we may never have figured this one out!

One reason a 1993 Chevy Lumina may turn over but not start could be the battery. It may also be the spark plugs.

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.

Make Sure your battery full charged sometimes the battery might be low or bad and it is not give it the spark it need to turn over what you can do is get under the car find the starter and the to nuts hodlind the starter you can hit them with a hammer gentlely and have someone hold the ignition in the start position and that usally will cause it to turn over if not then you need a new starter I have a 94 Chevy Lumina euro and it did the same thing
