1998 Chevy Express Van I change the rear brakes the drums in the hardware I have a loud pulsating vibration in the rear when I press the brakes can it be my anti lock brakes sensors lost help me

Doubtful it has anything to do with the ABS. Sounds as if the rear brakes are over adjusted or you have an out of round drum. Even though being new, I have experienced many problems with brake drums especially if they are not brand name

Location of orifice tube in 2000 chevy venture

best advice is the method i would use to located the orifice tube in the 2000 chevy venture. check the automotive repair book section in your local library. Most libraries have repair manuals on their automotive shelf section. find the a/c manual for your year and model car. make a copy of the page that has the information you need. you will need to make a copy because the library will not let those manuals be checked out. you might want to google for the location of the orifice tube location. I hope this helps.

Is the fliud a lite clear brown/tan (brake fliud) or is it a dark black colour (gear oil)? It sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. Check your steel line on the rear axle and then remove the wheel and drum and check the wheel cylinder. Top up your Master cylinder and bleed the brakes. You might find the light scrubbing noise gone.
