#686 of 857 Low Coolant Light
Nov 17, 2005 (10:32 am)
I recently bought a decent 97' Lumina with only 48,000 miles. The Coolant was in neeed of a flush where I found out someone had added the wrong coolant to the factory DexCoolant? I had the system flushed and filled with the RIGHT coolant. Now the "low coolant light" comes on at start up and stays on for a while before shutting off at approx. 195 degrees. The temp gauge stays pretty consistant except in extremely hot days and stop & go traffic where it goes to about midway - 200 -220 degrees or so. The coolant level is full; the radiator cap was replaced and there are no observed leaks. Any help would be appreciated!!

I, too, bought a 1999 Lumina back in 2000 when it had only 22,000 miles. It now has 194,000 and counting (fingers crossed, fingers crossed). My only problems were an ignition switch wire (fixed once), an alternator, water pump, batteries and other typical work like brakes (done twice).
For the money it's been a fantastic car, no matter what happens. I just hope I can keep it going a while.
#688 of 857 93 Z-34 Radiator plug on side?
Dec 05, 2005 (5:18 am)
The "low coolant" light came on in my Z-34. In checking the fluid level I found a "plug" had popped out of the radiator on the passenger side of the car... NOW WHAT? I tried to reinsert the plug but feel it isn't in well enough. Is there a trick to putting this thing back in? Why did it "pop" out?
#689 of 857 93 Z-34 left tail lights & right turn signal
Dec 05, 2005 (5:28 am)
The bulbs are not burnt out but some of the left rear tail lights are not working, but the left turn signal works fine. However, with the right turn signal, I have to put upward pressure and hold it "up" in order for the right signal to flash. Can any of you give me some direction on either of these items? (no pun intended!) HELP!
#690 of 857 The little Lumina that couldn't
Dec 13, 2005 (11:26 am)
Overnight my Lumina has developed some serious mechanical issues. Literally, I parked in my driveway after an uneventful ride home, and the next morning it had major mechanical issues when I started it. It was the first freezing night of the winter year. It shudder and shakes, the engine is vibrating ALOT more than it should. It has no acceleration, 30 mph is the top speed it will hit. It acts starved for gas. After taking it to a shop, I was told that two of the cylinders have very little compression. So they cleaned the carbon out of them and said it was fixed. It's not. In fact it got worse. They even checked fuel injectors, which are fine. It is eating ALOT of gas, and really working the tranny to shift into higher gears. Has anyone out there seen something like this before? Since the mechanics can't tell me what is wrong, I'm really getting desperate here. This car has 190,000 miles on it but has run like a champ from day 1, until now. Anyone got an idea?

#693 of 857 door locks off and on
Jan 04, 2006 (11:30 am)
I can never tell when the driver's side is going to lock behind me, or not. Anyone have this problem, or knows how to fix it?

When I got my Lumina I read that some people brush against the switch when they exit thus locking the doors unintentionally.
I always carry an extra door key on a different ring than the ignition key just to be safe.
