I have a 1995 chevrolet 2500 4x4 pickup. some part in the door broke and i cannot get the piece that latches around the peg on the door frame down to shut the door, i have tried pulling the door handle inside and out and the part still won't move. the lock is frozen too and won't move.

    I have driver door not wanting to shut unless you shut it hard with the window down. Won't close completly if the window is up, and just barely when the window is down. Seems like the latch might not be lining up with the peg, can this be adjusted? Also the light that shows the gear selection on the dash will stop at N and then doesn't move till you get to 1st gear then it moves over to 2 but then on the way back to park it still isn't in sinc with the actual gears. Can this be fixed or adjusted to line up? Seems like the steering is a little hard and maybe the pump is whining when I steer it. The pump has plenty of fluid. Did this year 95 have that speed sensor for the steering?

I think you need to replace the latch assm. The 2 arms that grab the peg are spring loaded and if those springs break the arms won't grab. First try holding the outside door handle in the 'open' position and with your finger or a screwdriver see if you can release the 2 arms. If you can, but they fall back down, then they don't have any spring tension. With your frozen 'lock', if you mean the door lock cylinder you can try spraying wd-40 into it to lubricate it. Also, if your key is worn that may cause the lock cylinder to bind. Hope this helps.

The driver side door will not latch shut

I am assuming that the door latch is stuck in the closed position... while the door is actually open already..
This would cause the latching mechanism to appear faulty.
Take a screwdriver and pop out the latching arm while pulling on the door handle...
Once it is unlatched... you should beable to get it to catch when you close the door...

If this is not the case , then please elaborate and we will try to get you Fixed up again.

My 1995 chevy lumina driver side door wont stay shut. it keeps poppin back open. every once and a while it will shut

Get a can of a spray lubricant such as WD-40 or Rust Check and spray inside the latch. Move the can around so that the spray gets everywhere on the latch and then close the door repeatedly. You may have to do this a few times to get it freed up but it should work. If it doesn't then you will have to replace the latch. Hope this helps.

Driver side door on 1995 chevy express van will not shut

Chances are the door latch has closed without the door being closed.

Inspect the latch mechanism on the door. I suspect you will find that the latch is in the closed position.

Use a screw driver to take place of the normal jam pin in the latch apply tension ( like the tension that would be present normally opening the door) and actuate the door handle.

Make sure to lubricate once you do get the latch to open.

My car door won't shut and lock. How can i get it

You may need a new latch assembly. Tr y prying a screwdriver in the old lock to see if it will fully closed upon forcing it. If it does latch you do need a new one. They generally wear out if the door hinges need attention or replaced. If the hinges are not tended too in about a year the latch wears out too
