Engine Performance problem
1998 Chevy Lumina 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles

Ok I was driving my 1998 Chevy Lumina it was real cold in the morning, my car clicks when its cold but when car warms up seems to go away. But today I was driving it to work and then the throttle when real high so I stopped the car and it continued and it shut off but then I started it and started back up, my car has been having problems with coolant light coming on and off saying low coolant but I see no white smoke or anything about blowin headgasket so if you could shed some light on my issues would be great Thanks

Hi:
Have you had the alt checked? It sounds like there is a problem with the voltage regulator. Most parts stores will do it for free.

Let me know what you find.
