Having problems with your 1995 Chevrolet Lumina ?
1995 Chevy Lumina that had no coolant and I filled up again and kept eye on temp gauge. Son drove home and temp gauge was in the middle and a big puff of white smoke came out and car stalled? Water pump?
That white smoke is coolant in a cylinder(s) More than likely its a blown headgasket.
Check the engine oil to be sure it isn't over full and foamy as coolant may have drained into the oil pan. If this is the case you may have a bad head gasket due to over heating. If the oil is OK the first, easiest and most inexpensive thing to replace would be the thermostat becuse if it's stuck closed it will cause over heating and depending where the temperature sensor is located may not register the correct teperature on the gauge.
