Question about 2001 Chevrolet Astro
So here it is i was driven my van for a few dayz with the chech engine lite on and everything was ok tiill yesterday i was sitting at a stop lite and tha van died so i restarted it and drove of everything semd fine till i try to get on it then it bogged down and the check engine lite went off but runs ruff at half pedal so i parked it and had a friend hook it up to a code reader and it wudnt power up so im lost not sure wat it is maybe computer is messing up or it went in safe mode or fuel fiter is bloged im not sure. the check engine lite wudnt even turn on even wen u turn the key on but then it did but was the first lite to turn off after start up i drove it home and it ran fine but im not sure its fixed . Also i did see tha gs cap was off so i put it back on and it started these problems i was thinking maybe someone but something in my gas tank because it ran fine bsides tha check engine lite being on .so if u could help in anyway it wud b great help thank u and sorry about my spelling thanx again ...
Sometimes when the gas cap gets left off, it sets a code and turns on the check engine light. if the problem returns, it very well could be the egr valve....they tend to have a build up of carbon in the valve and can stick open.this problem can cause a rough idle, hesitation and stalling. you can remove the valve and use a screwdriver , with a torx bit i think, and turn the inside of the valve to break up the carbon deposits...should fix it, but with no code its hard to tell exactly what the problem is.
