The 2001 Lumina has the OBDII system. The only way to access the data is with an OBD2 reader (about $120 ) from any FLAPS (Friendly Local Auto Parts Store) Or you could take the car to a dealer and pay them to read the codes. Purchase the Haynes manual for the Lumina so you can look up the codes and figure out whats wrong.

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

If your 1990 Lumina has gas in the oil pan, then there could be a stuck injector flooding the engine. There can also be a blown head gasket. Driving the vehicle can destroy the engine.

When service engine light is on on a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer, the problem could be a faulty thermostat, a circuit range performance problem, or any other problem.

Several things could be making the Lumina growl. Check the belts and pulleys on the front of the engine. Check the engine mounts as well. Either of these areas can cause the problem of the growling noise.

My 94 Lumina APV (3.8L) would not start (when warm) - cranked but acted as if no spark or fuel. Mechanic replaced computer @ $350 (said too many error codes to diagnose problem) - did not resolve problem. Then he replaced the camshaft position sensor (CMP) @ $125 - that solved the problem. PB

Could be a problem with a pulley bearing.

If the windshield wipers are not working on a 1990 Chevy Lumina, the problem could be with the wiper motor, the wiper motor relay, or a fuse. The least expensive fix to this problem will be replacing the fuse if it is blown.

Could be a problem with the thermostat housing or it's gasket, could be a problem with intake manifold gaskets, could be a problem with heater hoses or the fittings that screw into the manifold.

If the headlights are not coming on in a 1997 Lumina, it could be a problem with the headlight switch. It could also be a fuse or the headlight relay.

Your problem may be with any or all of these three items: The fuse, brake switch or bulbs in the brake lights.

I have a 92 lumina euro that did that and it turned out to be my crank sensor. The problem could also be the Torque Converter Clutch, bad plugs and wires, distributer cab, low idle could cause this to.

Try locating and testing or changing the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) Or if it's not in gear it could be the rev limiter keepin you from over revving & blowing your engine.

Clean the MAF sensor with CRC MAF cleaner. Check the airfilter. Check for a clogged catalytic converter.

It depends on the exact problem. If it's that both brake lights in the back do not work and the middle one works, it could be your turn signal switch.

Your vehicle speed sensor. I Believe it is located near your transmission under the car. fairly easy to replace

Fuel going into the air cleaner could be a stuck float or improper timing, or internal engine problems. If the engine is also backfiring then the timing is probably off.
