1996 Chevrolet Lumina. Question: Lately, I've been noticing that once I get my Lumina up above 65 mph, on the highway, theres a really annoying rattle in the rear. It sounds almost as if it could be my rear struts/suspension on its way out? I've read that it could also be caused by a warped rim, or issue with tire. Whats your stand on this.
The rattle/noise gets worse the faster the car goes. Makes entire rear of car shake.
Answer: A bent rim, or a tire problem will usually give a vibration. If it is severe enough, it can cause a rattle. Would definitely check for tire or rim problem. A loose strut/shock would rattle if there was a problem with a tire/rim. Also check for a foreign object in the tire tread, like a nail or something larger.
1998 Chevy Lumina Question: which sensor is above the starter on this car?
Answer: I believe you are looking at the knock sensor. That would be a 1- wire sensor. If you could send us a picture, we can tell you for sure. Different years have sensors in different spots.
