1996 Chevy Lumina 3.1 L. I have good fuel pressure,spark and compression. Engine starts then dies about 10 seconds after startup. Restarts but again dies. Noid light stops blinking and engine dies right after. What tells injectors to keep firing? New 24x ckps. new cam sensor, 3x (7x) ckps shows 1.0 ac volts and ohms out @ 954 @ the ICM connector> what have I overlooked? your help is appreciated! thank you!!! Sorry in addition to question on chevy lumina 3.1 L. that starts and then dies, I have no codes and VATS is bypassed with a resistor of 4.7 ohms!

Answer: The ECM is what supplies the ground to the fuel injectors. With the these things dyou have already one the next thing i would suspect is either a bad ECM or a bad fuel injector. If one of the injectors is low on ohms reading, it will cause the ECM to stop sending the ground and shut down the injector circuit.

Have seen it many times on this engine. What we usually find is at least one bad injector on each bank. You are going to have to check each one individually. The resistance should be about 12.4 ohms. If you get any that are in the 11 range or anything lower, it is bad and needs to be replaced.

    How Things Work

    Vehicle Front Suspension Operation

    The front suspension has 2 primary purposes:

    Isolate the driver from irregularities in the road surface.
    Define the ride and handling characteristics of the vehicle.

    The front suspension absorbs the impact of the tires travelling over irregular road surfaces and dissipates this energy throughout the suspension system. This process isolates the vehicle occupants from the road surface.

    Common Engine Codes

    Code P0101 or P0102 Mass Air flow Sensor

    The mass air flow (MAF) sensor is an air flow meter that measures the amount of air entering the engine. The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the MAF sensor signal in order to provide the correct fuel delivery for a wide range of engine speeds and loads. A small quantity of air entering the engine indicates deceleration or idle.
