There is usually a SEAL where the axle is connected/inserted into the transmission/differential.

The part is cheap <$20, but labor will be over $100.

It has a hydraboost brake booster right? Sounds like a bad Power steering pump. The belt is still on it right?

BUSHINGS! Your bushings need to be replaced. It is probably worse if you are in a turn at 65mph, too.

SOURCE: Sticky throttle on 200 Chevy Astro

There was a recall on the throttle body blade on the 4.3 a few years back for the throttle body to stick in the close position. Yours being 9 years old makes me think that there not going to do anything for it but give you the solution to the sticky throttle blade.
The solution was to change the blade. You can try cleaning the throttle body blade by spraying throttle body cleaner in to the barrel of the throttle body. If you look down, you'll see the carbon build up and it may just need and good cleaning. 
If that does not work, you can buy a new Throttle body blade which is only held on by two screws on the throttle blade shaft.

Start with cleaning the blade and throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Just follow the instruction and you'll be fine. 
Keep me posted and good luck.

I always take the tire off and go through the wheel well. The middle one is the toughest because the steering column is in the way..

2003 chevy astro van w/AWD. AWD is not working at all.


what was your test to determine the failure ?
if you jacked up one end and the car didn't drive off the jacks , that is how an all wheel drive works
It has a differential in the transmission that allows the front axle to drive at different speeds to the rear ( same as one wheel on the axle will go faster than the other when going around corners)
it is used to prevent torque wind up in the drive train and destroying transmissions , diffs and drive lines
it has to have all 4 wheels on the ground so that the 3rd diff is not operational unless going over a speed bump or dips in the road
however if you have a 4 wheel lock for the transmission, that is different as it locks up the 3rd diff in the transmission making the car a 4 x 4

Can you remove the driver side cv axle from a 2005 Chevy asteo van AWD permenanlry


The CV axle stub (end with the axle nut on it) supports the wheel bearing, removing the axle then driving on it would cause the bearing to wear prematurely. I would not recommend this. The front differential is also sealed by the cv assembly, removing it would cause the diff fluid to leak out . CV shafts for this van run $50-80. I would replace if it is bad, instead.

this may be coming from an axle"{ wind up" situation occurring when the diff between the front and rear diffs is not working properly. If you have traction control I would suspect a faulty sensor. Have the fault codes read to make sure

Front axle is getting hot and it starts to clunk when turning1993chevy astro awd extaxle GU4


Sounds like the CV joint boot got damaged and let contaminates in. The clicking indicates the part has malfunctioned and must be replaced. Clicking causes friction and friction causes heat. I would advise against driving the van until the repair is made to keep the transmission from failing. AWD transmissions must have all axles in place and working to avoid damage.

Rhythmic grinding noise front end - 98 chevy astro AWD


Could be low on oil, trans doesnt have fluid, wheel bearings are gone, or could be something stuck under the vehicle and either the tires or the drive axle is rubbing against it.

97 astro van awd there is a clicking in the front end only when driving straight, have replaced half shaft, wheel bearings, brakes, rotors, and calipers, and the noise is still there any ideas


Have it put on a rack, and spin the wheels, but don't spin them over 30mph, and go under vehicle and see if the noise will direct you to the problem.

97 ford explorer awd bad right front cv joint


Yes you can, If you have taken the front drive shaft off, you can even still drive with the CV joint in place till you want to remove it. You may get some vibration around corners till you replace the CV joint or remove it totally.
But if your going to remove it, might as well wait till you have the replacement so you only do the job once. I had a Bad CV joint on a AWD Chevy van and did the same thing so i could still use it, and then replaced the CV joint when the weather got better.
Good luck and hope this helps.
