Question about 2000 Chevrolet Astro

2000 Chev Astro Cargo van

Hi there I have this problem with my Astro, it would start and them abruptly stop, even when I'm driving (not good). The Alternator was test good, the fuel pump ok, the battery new. I was told by a tech the engine is ceased up?

That puzzles me/ How can it be ceased up if it starts them shuts down.

When it shuts down all the power goes and I have to get a jump for it to start again?

Hi

Sounds like you may have an earthing problem in the battery circuit. Do the headlights still work when the van stops?

    I certainly dont believe that the engine os siezing up as somebody suggested to you. Would be very odd if that were to happen and the battery be flat at the same time. check all the connections from the battery to the chassis and also to the motor itself. Remove the connections and clean them till bright shiny metal, and then put a smear of grease on the nright metal to prevent corrosion.

How do I stop the grinding when starting 2000 Astro Van


Hello Anonymous...

To inspect the teeth on the ring gear requires the inspection to check the full 360 degrees of the ring gear. Looking past the inspection cover to examine a small portion of the ring gear may reveal no issues, but only for that section. Eventually the ring gear will end up positioned above the starter drive gear which will skip across the bad teeth creating your grinding noise when you try and start the Astro,.

Need serpentine belt routing diagram 1987 Chev Astro Van 6 cyl


If nobody here provides it for you (I don't have your van's manual), then visit the chevy dealership and ask a not-too-busy shop foreman or a parts dept. person for a little assistance. A quick look in a repair manual for your van may also have it. It must have got scraped off or disappeared from under your hood, on a little sticker?
