Chevrolet Lumina, Sedan
#612 of 857 1995 Chevy Lumina...3.1ltr
Apr 25, 2005 (9:45 am)
First of all I gave up figuring out how to post in the Chevy Lumina section; therefore, I am posting here. Sorry, if anyone can explain to me how to do that I'd appreciate it very much.
Today my Econolube guy told me that I desperately needed to replace my intake manifold gaskets...cost: $500.
Of course, I haven't a clue what that means except he's probably right.
Is that a fair price for a 1995 Lumina with 122,000 miles???
Thanks so much!

price sounds about right, if labor rate is about $60 per hour.

Is there anything I must do to prepare (questions to ask the mechanic, etc) to protect myself in the event of worse case scenarios when dealing with auto shops???
I am a novice and this is my first time for such a relatively expensive repair; not to mention a bit intimidating.

#616 of 857 Lumina does'nt always start in Park, but it does in Neutral?

It's a mystery to me, I just got this Lumina and the next day it won't start when it's in park, but works in Neutral, am I missing something here or is there a technical problem with this. Any help would be great.

Anybody know what is wrong with a 93 model lumina that has coolant dripping from apparently a drainage hose on the passenger side firewall ?After driving 20 miles or so,I get a low coolant warning and I see a slow dripping flow of coolant from a hose with 90 degree bend located on the firewall.The 3.1 litre motor has problems with coolant leaks from what I have heard.I guess I need to disassemble the instrument panel dash and examine the heater core.Any comments or advice are wellcome.Thanks...

I'm on my second lumina with the 3.1 and its almost automatic that the intake manifold will warp and need to be replaced. Its shouldn't be a big deal for your guys to fix this for you. After mine was replaced I'm still going strong 70,000 miles later.
