It could be the gas. If the gas in the tank is the type that is made by corn (Ethanol) it goes bad after awhile. Other possible solutions are; The timing could be out of alignment The PCV system could be clogged. (The PCV system lets the crankcase breathe easier) There is a additive called Sea foam. Seafoam is a "run-through" type carb/fuel system cleaner. It has the added benefits of removing carbon deposits in the head (if used in high concentration) and cleaning out sludge in the crank case if added to the oil. There's instructions on the can for different treatments. It's only available in the USA. With engine warm, slowly pour 1/3 to 1/2 pint through carburetor or throttle body throat. (If vehicle is port injected slowly pour SEA FOAM through direct manifold vacuum line that will feed all cylinders, possible sources are P.C.V. valve or brake booster line.) This will pull SEA FOAM down on top of the pistons and to the back of the intake valves to dissolve carbon. Turn ignition off. Restart engine after 5 minutes. If severe carbon build up is apparent, use more Sea Foam as previously directed. Make sure exhaust is well ventilated when using Sea Foam in these various ways as fumes will be extreme for a short time. Pour 1/3 to 1/2 pint into oil crank case to clean rings, lifters, dirty parts and remove moisture. Pour 1/3 to 1 full pint into fuel tank to clean injectors, carburetor jets, fuel lines and remove moisture. Immediate Results: Smoother idle, increased R.P.M.'s better throttle response and improved performance. See label on can for detailed results for use in each area.

Your 1992 Chevy Lumina will run with a bad 02 sensor. The engine will seem to be sluggish and the fuel mileage will go down.

To replace a blown head gasket on a 1998 Chevy Lumina, it would cost between $18 and $174. This depends on the brand part and any labor costs.

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.

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.

I would recommend it being trouble-shooted. IT may be multiple problem related. It may be a lack of maintenace problem, or a loss of fuel or spark problem, or a transmission problem-torque converter or shift solenoid problem.

The majority of the 93 Chevy Lumina vans requires a size 14 tires. A size 17 would not fit properly on the van. While you can spend extra money to have the van altered to fit the tires, it isn't worth it in the long run.

Could be a fuel pump going bad or a clogged fuel filter,

It could be brakes, bearings or something else altogether.

You could, but it would probably be a bit more effective just to fix it the right way.

If they are both 3100 engines...yes. Direct swap. The only thing you MAY have to change would be the motor mounts.

In the 2000 Chevy Lumina it is on the driver's side of the dashboard, close to the windshield. It is a small hole. I would guess the design hadn't changed since '97, since it works so poorly in 2000, they obviously hadn't improved it any.

Shift solenoids are located inside the automatic transmission, accessable via a side cover plate.
