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 (7:29 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 (10:57 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.

I've got a 1998 Lumina with 168K miles.
The problem is my 17 year old son cut the corner too sharp and damaged the right rear rim on the curb. Had to replace the rim. Tire was mounted and balanced on another rim.
However now there's a constant thump whenever I accelerate above 15 mph. At speed it almost sounds as if there's a helicopter hovering over the right rear of the car. The noise was not there prior to breaking the rim.
I'm thinking the wheel bearings may be damaged, but I open for suggestions. Anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be?

I have a 95 lumina w/170K.
I would probably put on the doughnut spare and go for a test drive. If the problem persists, you know for sure its not related to the tire/rim.

Put the spare on this afternoon. Unfortunately, the noise didn't change much.
