Question about 1995 Chevrolet Astro
Turns over but wont start cheacked all fuss 95 astro van wat could it be dont think its fuel pump
How many miles are on the truck? If it is high mileage, then you most likely are looking at a fuel pump change. The pump is in the tank, and dropping the fuel tank can be a daunting task for the uninitiated DIY'er. Take heart though, because it is not an impossible job. Depending on the engine code (look at the air cleaner: round and on top of throttle body=Z code, rectangular and in front of engine on top of radiator=W code) the hose connections between the fuel pump module and the truck plumbing are different in that the Z has simple fuel hose jumpers (relatively low pressure) and the W has plumbing connectors more suitable for high pressure, and thus require special tools to disconnect ( look in the tool section of your local auto parts store for a set of the different sizes) Raise the truck at least 8 to 10" off the ground. Jack stands under the frame at all four points, or you can use 4 concrete blocks, one under each wheel. Insure that both the transmission is in Park, and the Emergency Brake is set. DISCONNECT THE BATTERY. Remove as much fuel from the tank as possible. Remove the stone guard (plastic covering), from around the tank. disconnect the fuel filler assembly/plumbing.
Loosen the tank strap bolts on the outboard side of the truck. At this point either have help, or a floor jack to take the weight of the tank/remaining fuel. Disconnect the fuel pump electrical connector, and when the tank is lowered enough the pressure, return, and vapor fuel lines which are just above the middle of the tank. Remove the tank from under the truck. R & R the fuel pump and filter sock, or the entire module as necessary. Reverse the above steps and drive away! . While you are at the auto store, look into spending $20 for a Hayes manual for your truck. It is usually a wise investment to have some technical assistance on the job site. Hope this helps. Bob
