Chevrolet Lumina, Sedan

I have a 2001 Lumina with 3.1L
trying to have my car inspected, but i'm getting a P0410 code, I know it has to do with the secondary air injection system, I checked the pump,the Relay, and the selonoid, they all working, I even send a signal from PCM to air pump relay and the air pump worked, if anyone knows or had a problem like mine please let me know . I appreciate any input and help.
#162 of 218 1998 Lumina LTZ 3.8L - transmission issue
Jun 01, 2011 (4:03 am)
98 LTZ 3.8L with a transmission issue.
It seems the shift points are screwed up across the board. It will not shift until it hits 4,000RPM. Also when cruising at around 75MPH, it's registering 3400-3500RPM. I don't think it's getting out of 3rd gear due to the fact it's not getting to 4,000RPM to shift into Overdrive.
I've been wondering if it was the transmission speed sensor or transmission pressure control solenoid?
Some quick history, bought in 2009 with 162,000 for $800. Transmission shifted hard and had a whiny sound. Transmission world in Knoxville told me it was probably stuck in "high-mode" and was most likely the computer giving me a problem, not the actual transmission. March 2010 I fixed my truck and let the Lumina sit for a year. Got her back on the road this past week with a new throttle position sensor to fix a stalling issue it had. Well now the transmission doesn't shift hard but it doesn't shift until 4,000RPM in any gear. Is it possible i put in the TPS wrong? could that cause this issue as well?
I appreciate any advice anyone can give!

I have a 98 LTZ with a brand new battery and alternator. However the battery won't hold a charge for longer then maybe an hour or two. I keep getting told I need to check the grounding wires but I have absolutely no idea where they are. Can anybody tell me where to look so I can check them out? I really need to get this car working again.

How old is this battery? More than 5 years old? Probably no good then.
As for grounding wires, I guess they mean a) the negative battery cable, as it bolts to the frame of the car, and b) the engine-to-frame grounding cable, which is self-explanatory. This (b) cable is usually braided metal.

morning, on your regurards to the cooling fan not coming on, i just got though dealing with this on my 99 chevy lumina, the reason your cooling fans are not coming on is that there is a sencer on the block called thermosat cooling sencer, and it is a 3 prong plug and it is located write under the throttle body housing, now this sencer conrols 3 different functions, one telling the cooling fans to turn on and to turn and off, and also it controls the tempture gauage on the dash, not with this sencer bening bad the cooling fans will not turn on, if this sencer is un-pluged, this will kick on the cooling fans, by the way of battery power and they will fun continusly, the thermstat block sencer is only 20 dollars at a parts store, and sound fix your problem, not there is also 2 fan relay that could play a part in the cooling fans not turning on, more then likely your relays dont go bad, if you have any questions, dont be afraid to contact me on here, my user name is pettit27, thanks and have a great day,

#168 of 218 Help Replacing Leaf Spring Insulators '91 Lumina
Oct 07, 2007 (6:29 am)
I need to replace the rear leaf spring rubber insulators on my 1991 Lumina. I would like to do this myself, but have never done it before. Can anyone help me with some direction? It looks like the ends of the leaf spring need to be lifted just enough to slide on the new insulators. I do not know how to do this. Does it require special tools? Or can a bottle jack be used uner the spring to raise each end? Help will be greatly appreciated.
#169 of 218 Rear Strut Removal
Oct 21, 2007 (9:57 am)
I have a 91 Lumina Euro. I am trying to replace a rear strut that has blown. I have the two bolts above the tire in the wheel well and the top bolt on the lower section out. The bottom bolt will not move. The bolt has groves on it that I am guessing are to keep it from turning. I am also guessing these same groves are whats preventing the bottom bolt from coming out. Does anyone have an idea of how to remove the bolt? The top one came out with a couple of light taps from a hammer.

Nevermind. I took the knuckle off and used a larger hammer to get the bolt out.
