#147 of 218 2001 Lumina Sedan repair manual dilema!
Jun 13, 2010 (11:50 am)
Anyone know where I can find a free download 2001 Lumina sedan repair manual, or for today, at least an electrical diagram? I'm trying to repair the blower control circuit which seems to have a number of relays besides the manual knob speed control.
Thanks in advance!

There is one relay for all the fan speeds which is under the passenger side dash, next to or behind the blower motor. It can be a challenge to get it out. Does the high speed work on the fan? Usually the other speeds bow out one at a time unless the whole relay is gone.

Did you contact the dealership and explain that you are still experiencing sounds from your vehicle? Thank you,

#150 of 218 92 Chevy Lumina 3.1 Euro Start Issues
Mar 07, 2011 (2:44 am)
I just did a tune up on My 92 Chevy Lumina 3.1. In this tune up I changed the following:
- Spark Plugs (gaped correctly to .045)
- Plug wires
- Oil and filter
- Air Filter
Prior to this my car idled fine but when I accelerated it would hesitate for a sec then it would accelerate just fine. I figured it being an older car with 200k miles it was probably a vacuum leak or something small. It ran great for 2 days after the tune up, then on the third morning my car would turn over but wouldn't start. Not really sure what the issue could be, seeing that the work I did was minor. I proceeded with changing the fuel filter. After changing the fuel filter, my car started right up and ran great for about 35min. I drove it around, turned it off, and started it continually for about 1 hour after that, and everything seemed fine. Then about 6 hours later, I tried starting it up again and the same issue... Just turning over but not firing up. Generally after about an evening of sitting, I'll attempt to start and it sputters for about 1/2 second then nothing... Just turning over without starting up. Any help or Ideas would be excellent. Also, I've been driving this car around for the last year without ever any start up issues as described before the tune up. Thanks, Ace

So, do you have a check engine light on? There are several components that monitor the engine. It could be a simple issue. For example: Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), or Crankshaft or Camshaft Position Sensors, a MAP or MAF sensor could be a problem too. The problem is, is that without a check engine light on and a code, it`s harder to pinpoint. The slight hesitation before throttle up suggests one of the above sensors as the computers seems to be trying to compensate for a problem (thus the hesitation). Also the starting issue lends towards a sensor problem as well.
If your Check Engine Light is on, there might be a way for you to read the codes yourself.
Let me know and I`ll try to help!

Ian, Thanks for your response. Unfortunately the check engine light has never come on. I am wondering if during my changing of the rear 3 spark plugs, where I removed the alternator to gain access, I may have not connected one of the sensors completely. There is a sensor I unplugged and plugged back in that had a small vacuum line at the bottom of it. Not sure what this is, but this is the only sensor that I recall removing during the spark plug change. I don't know if this helps. Thanks, Ace

Compounded with the issue that I stated previous, now my car wont crank. I turn the key, I don't hear the fuel pump "buzz", there is plenty of juice in the battery and now no click or nothing, the car wont crank. Any possibilities that these issues are related? Any help, Thanks.

Is there an 'auxiliary' batter post near a fuse box in that vehicle? I had issues with my `95 Lumina where the bolt that holds the main power wire from the alternator was loose. This wire comes directly from the starter motor which comes directly from the alternator. Also, try tightening the wires on the starter motor itself. Thirdly, tighten all ground wires to the motor..especially the one that comes from the battery`s negative side. My Lumina had issues with the starter and that was the reason....loose/slightly corroded power wires. Some nuts may only turn 1/8th of a turn but that can make all the difference.
Do you have a GM security system in that vehicle? Pass key or VATS system? If you turn the key to 'ON', does the security light flash?
Let me know. Even if you unplugged a wire from that purge solenoid valve, the car would still start....it has nothing to do with cranking.
