Asked by Feb 17, 2008 at 01:13 PM about the 1995 Chevrolet Lumina 4 Dr LS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What would cause this car to bog down and die after driving it a bit when the weather isnt cold and the speedometer to go wacky

1 Answer

43,565

Could be PCM. This will need to be diagnosed by a competent mechanic. Fuel delivery and spark issues are also a possibility but the addition of the wacked-out speedometer makes me thing PCM/ECM issue.
