I just bought a 1992 chevy lumina with 180,000 miles and the 3.1 liter engine. I purchased the car very cheap knowing it had a problem hoping to fix it cheap as well. The car will start but soon after stall if you dont keep your foot on the gas, also it will stall when you come to a stop sign or light if you dont keep the gas on. Other than this problem the car runs like a champ when you are in travel. I had it hooked up to a scanner and it read "MAT is too high". I have no clue what this means, however the car has a oil leak from either the distributor port or the intake manifold, also a coolant leak from arount the same spot as the oil, not nearly as bad as the oil leak though. I was warned about the "idle speed control motor", but not sure what that is, appreciate any advice I can get.
have the same problem?
