Engine Performance problem
1997 Chevy Lumina 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
my 97 lumina will turn over but not start. It just happened. And it was very recent. We did fill up with Arco gas, and ran it until about a 1/4 tank left. It sat overnight and then would not start. Checked several things. First put in good quality fuel and a bottle of HEET into the gas tank. No start. Then replaced spark plugs. No start. Then sprayed starting fluid into the carberator. Tried starting it and after a few tries it worked. It ran for about a week or 2 then wouldnt start again. Sprayed the carberator again with starting fluid and it worked. Changed the fuel filter as a precaution, thought the old one was still good. Then went on a trip (about 200 miles round trip) on the way back filled up at a Chevron. Got home and the next morning it wont start. Sprayed more starting fluid and this time it did not work. Took out the IAC and cleaned it. Reinstalled it, but still wont start. Put in a little more starting fluid into the carb, and it sputtered and tried to start, but as of now it wont start. I bought a Chilton manual, but still an frustrated. Seems the first time it happened is when we got ARCO gas. Before that no problems. This has been over the course of about a month.
have the same problem?
