Why would a 92 Chevy Lumina be hard to start and the oil light flash on and off?

Check your oil and make sure there is some there. Actually it could be low oil pressure from lack of oil or from a bad oil pump

probably your security system . Search google for "Bypass GM Vats Security"

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

1999 Chevy lumina, won't start, security light comes on ,can jump the starter but motor will only run for a short time , strong battery ? tried different keys , no good ? help

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.

Turn ignition on but do not start engine, depress accelerator to the floor three times within 5 seconds, oil change light should flash 5 times, oil change light is reset if you did this correctly.

your key is probably wore out and tumblers are not moving

Most oxygen sensors are either on the exaust headpipe just after the manifold or on the manifold. I don't know where it is exactly on the Lumina but that is where you should start looking.

Install a manual gauge to check actual pressure or try Replacing oil sending unit

If there is no check engine light illuminated, start with the basics like a good tune up.

when i got into the car to start it it wouldn't even try nothing it had power to everything else and a new battery it just flashed security what can i do to disarm the security system

Turn key on,DO NOT START then push the gas pedal all the way down to the floor 3-times. Then turn key off and then start the engine. Light should flash and then go out.

Turn ignition on (do not start engine), depress the accelerator to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds, change oil light should flash 5 times, done.

Could be you need a new fuel idle motor. Or you need new spark plugs

it is due a service and the garage can reset the light

put your truck to the run position and press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times then turn it off. then start it up and it should flash then disapeer

there is a plug in under the dash the bottum row take a jumper wire from the first on the left to the third them turn your key on your light will flash once and then start giving you codes drive safe

Run a "compression test" to see if the engine overheated and warped the head.

Try getting a jump start. Could be a bad battery. If your battery is good, then you will need to get a new starter. It may be the Starter or the battery make be dead,

Turn the key to the on position,depress the accelerator pedal to the floor within 3 seconds. Wait and the light will flash and then go out. Turn the key off and then start the car. The light will come on monentarily and then go out.
