    Have you looked in the owners manual it is in there if it is factory, have you gone to the dealer and asked if you don't have owners manual?

1998 Chevrolet conversion van. Hesitates on the


lol everything but the actual cause of the problem. The big clue here is your gauges. What sensor going bad will cause the gauges to jump? Ask your mechanic that wasted all your money replacing good sensors. Then you may want to find a good mechanic. The problem is a wiring problem. Probably the main hotline running from the ignition to the fuse block. Somewhere in that area. If you have the spark circuit on a scope you would find it flat line when it hesitates.
I dont think it is a short because if it was you would have blown fuses or smoke and or electrical smell. So it has to be an open circuit that would be nearly impossible to find. If I was going to just start replacing things, I would start with the ignition switch and then the fuse block and then any hot wires to and from both elements.

I inherited a G20 gladiator chevy van and cannot figure out how to get the spare tire cover off the back door??? It sounds stupid, I know.


Most likely Gladiator conversion vans disappeared like many of the other conversion van companies. I am not familiar with Gladiator vans, but most of the conversion vans use the same setup. The chrome ring around tire is latched near the bottom, and usually padlocked to keep others from stealing your spare. If that is not the case, try http://www.v-sales.com/repair.htm . They still sell conversion parts and may be able to help you. Hope this helps

Back hatch won't open


Hi: Under your hood in the power distribution box is a 3A fuse, if blow your door locks and rear wiper motor won't work, replace fuse. To manually open door ... take a pick or fine longer screw driver and insert it through the carpet liner on the interior back door (center, top of carpet you will find a indent under the carpet.) move pick to release the door latch mechanism.

My back hatch door doen't want to open


You need to climb in the back and remove the plastic panel from the hatch to access the lock. There may be a small access door over the locking mechanism to help you avoid removing the whole thing. Could be dirty and sticky and fixable with a bit of graphite lube.
