#30 of 218 Oil spill around the spark plugs
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..

I just had the same problem on my 97, it wasn't the control, it was a broken vacuum line. All the controls are operated by engine vacuum. On my 97 there is a vacuum reservoir under the battery. You have to remove three screws from under the car. Just under the left headlight, front corner of the left front fender, under the battery. The reservoir is a sphere about the size of a soft ball. The one vacuum lines goes from it up by the battery, down the side of the engine compartment past the brake booster. Mine was smashed under the battery. It's a hard plastic line about 1/8". You can remove the panel under the glove box, and the glaove box itself to see all the controls and vacuum lines there too. It may be one pulled off at that location as well.
#33 of 218 97 lumina cooling fan operating temperature
Apr 01, 2007 (6:39 am)
Does anyone know at what temperature the cooling fans come on on a 97 Lumina 3.1L ? Is it controlled by the ECM, or the CTS ? I replaced the CTS due to innacurate guage readings and I remember that it had two terminals. I would think that one is for the guage, one is for the ECM. Is that right? That would mean that the fans are controlled by the ECM ?
I want to get the fans to turn on sooner. By the time they do, the temp is up to 250 according to the guage. It'd like them to come on around 210-220.
#34 of 218 94 lumina antilock brakes
Apr 01, 2007 (6:58 am)
my antilock light would come on in wet weather......now it stays on and when I turn to the right theres a whirr sound and I have no brakes, then they catch. Then the light goes off for awhile. My brakes are good. Is there some type of sensor that could be causing this? By the way, anyone ever find out where the flasher fuse is on one of these?
#35 of 218 cant figure out the problem!!
Apr 03, 2007 (8:42 am)
I have a 1993 lumina z34. for the last few months the car has either not run well or not at all. i have replaced basically everything in the engine, including fuel injectors, spark plugs, spark plug wires, map sensor, fuel filter, ignition control module, knock sensor, i think thats it. after i replaced the map sensor and a fuel line part, the car was finally running great. i was able to drive it all over town and it gave me no problems driving it an hour away. however, a few days ago i turned a corner and the thing just died. i can not get it to start now. that is when i replaced the ignition control module and spark plug wires, but i cant get it to spark. it cranks, but it wont spark. does anyone have ANY idea what could be the problem? i have put close to 1000 dollars and countless hours into this damn car, so at this point im not gonna stop until i get it running. ill try to check back at this website, but if someone has a suggestion if you could email it to me at ajkeenbsu.edu, i would GREATLY appreciate it. thanks everyone!
