Question about 1994 Chevrolet Astro

2 Answers

Afraid the motor will bust

My van will not start even when trying to jump it. The anti freeze was put in it after it wouldnt start so it is not going thru the engine. Will it be ok at least a few more weeks. I live in Tennessee.

Nothing like closing the horse after the door's gone... Can you tow it to a warm garage somewhere? Otherwise, about the only thing I can think of is to put a tarp over it and put an electric heater in there. Don't use one with open coils, don't let the tarp contact the heater and DON"T even think about it if you have or suspect even the slightest fuel leak anywhere) or pray really hard for warm weather!!! It will likely take the better part of a day to warm it up. If you start it with even a little ice in the system you will damage the water pump. So, don't be impatient!

I would imagine that it would be good if it had some before changing it.Engines are equipped with freeze plugs for that very reason. They are round little things attached to the engine block.

A short squirt of starting fluid in the air breather can help. Short spray, then start. Repeat until starts. Heat lamp on oil pan if starting fluid not an option

Mazda wont start, brand new battery


sounds like you have a failing ecu. the capacitors in the ecu are worn out. there has been a lot of problems with the ecu on mazda's over the years, only take one out put overload from the alternator and the ecu starts playing up. no codes come up as it don't code its self. having the battery off is like a reset.

1998 GMC Safari van won't start.


The ground should connect to the motor and the motor should connect to the body or chassis. Pour some water on the connection to the engine and the battery terminals. If it is a bad connection things should improve. If you jump start, the donor vehicle needs to be running at a fast idle.

My 1994 chevy caprice is leaking water


will try to help. where is the leak coming from? can you tell?under the front of motor where the engine fan is? could be water pump. could be a busted hose,upper or bottom radiator hose.there are 2 hoses that run to your heater core at the firewall or dash panel, could be there. leaking from sides of engine? could be a freeze out plug rusted through or if it's gotten below freezing and you did'nt have anti-freeze, most likely a freeze plug, they are designed to save your engine block from busting when you don't have anti-freeze in freezing weather. if you can repost your problem with a location, front, sides, or inbetween the back of engine and transission, i can help you. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Engine motor mounts / electrical harness


Yes if the mount is not on the correct way it will cause problems like that and even kill the motor while driving down the road. When the van was made thay put one of the main wiring harness's under the motor mount that bolts to the block. When its comes loose or off it starts shorting out your motor. You will ether need to replace the bracket or bolts or both. Bolt size is a M10 1.5 its a 17mm head. Or they might be loose. Mount is located in the front of the van inbetween the motor and transmission. Hopes this helps

Dont know


Check the starter. Sounds like it is not getting any juice. Tap on it with a long metal pole or hammer while someone tries to start it.
