What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Lumina, Sedan
Dec 25, 2006 (12:55 pm)
I recently replaced a burned out low beam headlight bulb in my 1997 Lumina with a new 9006 bulb. Now my DRL's don't work in the daytime. The evening lights still come on by themselves. I checked the 10amp fuse in the dash and it was fine. I called the local Chevy dealer and spoke to the parts guy. He said he had no idea what the problem was either. Any help from anyone on this forum will be appreciated.

Don't worry about the motor as long as the noise goes away when the engine warms. I have the same model with only 54K miles and it does the same thing. As far as the interior lights I would start by replacing the bulbs.

98 Lumina, 90,000 miles, 3.8/4T65E drivetrain. The engine used to show 2000 rpm at 60 mph, now it's about 2600. If I manually shift out of overdrive to 3d at 60 mph, there's no change in rpm. While going downhill the engine drops to 1000 rpm and if I speed up the trans freewheels until it reaches 2600 rpm. If I leave it in 3rd the car drives great, just no overdrive. I changed the fluid and filter,no metal shavings in pan, but no difference. Scan tool shows pressure of 96 psi in 4th gear, 3 to 20 psi if I shift to 3rd. Transmission temperature never rose above 180 degrees after an hour's drive, engine temp 190-200. Torque converter does lock up in 3rd, so I don't think it's that. I've never had a car act like this before.
Any suggestions or information appreciated.

#27 of 218 95 Chevy Lumina 3.1 Liter v6 4 door Car Heat/AC problem
Feb 04, 2007 (12:10 pm)
I have a 1995 Chevy 3.1 Liter v6 car 4 door Heating and A/C problem. I have heat, I have A/C but the Climate Controls at any setting doesn't switch from directing air flow. When selecting air flow to go out at feet when on heat then when wanting to direct air flow to and out defrost area at windshield for example. The control will change fan speed fine though. Normally when you change and select air flow to go from defrost mode from windshield to floor feet setting you can hear the a duct flapper or air flow panel move and change. Now I don't hear any duct flapper or air flow director move anymore. Its now Feb. 4, 2007 cold winter, thankgoodness it blows heat hot and fine and it seems the air flow flapper or what ever is between air coming out at windshield and feet area. I did find on ebay a 95 chevy lumina car climate control panel with switches. I some how don't think its the control, it maybe some how the air flow flapper or what ever stuck or motor that moves the air flow director or flapper. How hard is it to get to duct and or area to see flapper or what ever? Has anyone had a similiar issue? I had a bud email me and say he had a rat or rodant or vermin to get up in his car duct work and croak blocking his. I don't smell any dead animal at all. This has been this way for a good while now. I am 99.9% sure its not a dead animal blocking the flapper.
I sure would appreciate any input and help please, please!
Thanks from eztechguy
#28 of 218 1995 Lumina rear hatch handle broken
Feb 10, 2007 (9:16 am)
I tugged on the hatch handle to see if was locked. The handle came loose and I heard something falling to the bottom of the door. I haven't been able to get the door open to see if I can fix it myself. Any suggestions?

It is a vacuum leak. Some of these cars and Monte Carlos do it. Don't waste your money on switches. I don't know exactly how, but the vacuum ball that is in the body work ahead of the front tire becomes disconnected. Do a google search and there should be a better explanation than I could give.

Feb 25, 2007 (5:01 pm)
Hey everyone I own a 1996 chevy lumina with about 130k miles on it she's a 3.4 V6 she ran great until I notice oil spills and if I passed 60mph, it started to shake a little. Well today I tried to take her apart to change the spark plugs, I have a shop manual and I notice oil in the around the spark plugs and a lot of it I removed the head and two of the seals for the spark plugs where a little twisted out of shape one in the front and the other in the rear where the spark plugs went I was going to remove fuel rail because I notice oil and antifreeze moisture around the area but I'm stuck I don't know what to do the manual does not really tell me anything else ??? I also posted this message in another forum with a different title by mistake..
