Question about 1998 Chevrolet Astro
I have a 2000 Astro Van w/approx. 115,000 miles on it. The vehicle runs good and strong but on occasion it will just STOP running. Sometimes it will just quit, sometimes it will be missing before it quits. It can go for days or weeks at a time before this happens. I have had a full tune up, plugs, new wires, rotor, coil and fuel pump and filter along with a new relay for the fuel pump. Once the van stops running it can take 10-20 minutes to get it started again. Looking for anyone to give me a possible clue. My mechanic says it is something in the ignition system but of course nothing shows up on the diagnostic computer shows up other than there is some kind of occurrence which brings the check engine light on.
Hey I had my rotor and all that stuff replaced on my 2000 astro van, Intermittently it would not run, The problem was I hit a puddle one day and water flew up on top of the roter like 3 drops, it created a trace( it was arching) Thats why it was intermittent.Take a look at the cap look for like a discoloration on it clean it and put it back on.Sounds too easy but remember I had all new parts too.
