It's not actually a torx head, it's a hex head. I don't know if they changed the size since '96, but my '02 needed a 3/8" hex key (also known as an Allen wrench).

It's gonna be tough, I put the key in sideways so that forcing it down would rotate it counter-clockwise (keep in mind that the bolt faces the other way... don't want to inadvertently tighten it), then put my foot on the key, knee against the wheel well, and used my ankle to break it free. On the passenger side, because the brake line was in the way, I had to set the key so that forcing upwards would break it loose, then used a 2-foot length of pipe to get the torque advantage needed to break it free.

2002 GMC Savana van inner door latch broken


You can pick up the handle from your local GMC dealer. I paid roughly $90 for both (a bit high...but money well spent!) As noted, yes; you do have to remove the interior door panel. From there it's just a matter of removing 4 nuts (metric #10 socket), and replacing them back once the new handle is slipped into place! The bars that operate the door latches simply snap into the plastic clips attached to the handle assembly.
The operation sounds worse then what it really is. It took me longer to write up this review than it did to actually do the work! 5 minutes max...done!! Hell, if you're local; buy the parts

Van will not when hot 1997 gmc savana 1500, 5.0


Could be the battery and starter solenoid. Solinoids often heat up and can't make the required electric connection until they cool off.

Or, the battery can't hold a charge due to faulty alternator or other electrical parts. The only other thing I can think of is the head gasket or cooling sustem is bad allowing an overheat to take place and the moving engine parts lock when hot.
