Question about 2000 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

Gas meter is fluctuating from to full -meter shows more than 1/4 and vehicle is shutting down/stalling fro gas.

I recently bought a chevy astro 2000 (RWD) and is lie one thing after the next. I have three questions .1) I recently shut down(vehicle keeps holding back for gas) although the gas meter reads between 1/4 and 1/2-then is swings to a complete full tank.when I put gas( alot) it then drives nomal).Could it be the fuel pump,float ,meter -or the relay.I don;t want to spend unneccessarily.Also when I step on the brakes the vehicle and the steering wheel swings to the left.I check a machanic today and he said the I have to replace both calipers and some flex hose.Do I have tghe tw calipers or just the one on right?Lastly,is there a site where I can go to so as to diagnose a problem should it comes up in future .Thank you in advance.
Andrew.

    gas meeter fluctuates for me as well. It works fine as long as tank is 1/4 full or more... Other than being an annoyance, and caused me to run out once, I've left it alone.

It could be many different of things, but I would check the charging system and battery first. I have had many under charging GM vehicles that all the dash warning lights would light up.

How can you check if fuel pump is bad on a 2002 chevy astro


Check your TPS Sensor. My 1995 Chevy Astro Van did the same thing and I thought it was the fuel pump but I was wrong.

My car will start and idle fine sometime and sometime it dies and dies when put in gear


Engine stalls cold or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.
