1998 chevy lumina would not start, but then did & now won't
After driving about 10-15 miles (both hwy and city), I stopped, turned off car, returned to car 15- 20 minutes later, it would not start after repeated attempts. It seemed to crank OK (but maybe rough (?)) but would not fire up. 15 minutes later, it started as normal and ran fine the rest of the day or 2. A few days later it started OK the first time that day and I drove a mile or less to the store, turned it off to go inside, and a few minutes later it started again OK. I drove another mile or two and turned it off. 1-1/2 to 2 hours later it would not start. Sounded the same as a few days before, but after waiting it would not start. I tried it again yesterday and then today. It would not start, but it cranks just the same as explained above. What are the chances a new fuel filter will fix it. I bought it March 2004 at a state auction; it was a police car. March 2008 (125,000 miles) replaced the engine, with a used Buick engine that had about 78,000 miles. At that time, also replaced spark plugs and wires, the idle control valve and the air filter. That was 5,000 miles ago. I replaced the air filter in the summer and I got an oil change about 1,000 miles (1 month) ago I have never replaced the fuel filter.

Hi Barbara, I'm in Australia but I looked on google map and DRIVING north from Rochester mm to Osceola wi is 116.56 miles. I found a place 60.33 miles north of Osceola wi on hwy 52 called Coates, I notice a road house there called house of coates but have no idea how safe that little town is, St paul is another 20 miles north
but DRIVING from Coates to Osceola wi is another 56.49 miles. I hope you have a safe trip........CHEERS..
Google the models tank capacity, it is likely 15-20 gals, then do the same for the EPA and any other reputable sources, a forum etc of personal experiences too, . Fill it then go by the most conservative of estimates for mileage averages and minus 5 mpg the 1st time to be safe!, then when you have a 100 or so miles left aprox, go refill it and note usage and miles actually traveled by you. this may vary due to hwy vs city type driving and if your week to weeek habits are common or mixed up with any degree of hwy/city usage being predominate, thus affecting your numbers, after a bit you will say, 200 miles and its time or 250 miles etc, cant hurt to have a buffer, its better to keep a car filled as less condensation can occur which in empty tanks will happen more than with full tanks, it may be a fuse, worth checking, but the sending unit may be part of the fuel pump in the tank or pre pump, some cars use both setups.
If 20" tires weren't factory, your speedometer and odometer could be off by as much as 20%. Find a stretch of highway and watch odometer between two mile markers and check if it's accurate. Also depending on options, load, quality of fuel and regular maintenance have a large bearing on MPGs also make sure tire pressures are up.
Do you normally accelerate quickly from stopped? You can increase your cars mileage by cutting down on rapid starts and stops. A comparable Honda Accord Hybrid rated at a higher 25city 37 hwy MPG rating achieves less than 22mpg when driven HARD
