Question about 2000 Chevrolet Astro
I recently bought a '05 chevy astro cargo van. Seems to run great except at low speeds(in parking lots) when turning a sharp left or right, it feels like it is "bucking". It does not feel like the engine is stalling but rather like it is something to do with the transmission. Bye the way this is an AWD. This is the only time it occurs. Seems to smooth out if I apply more gas. I also believe it does this only when the van is at full operating temp. I have checked the trans fluid and it is full at operating temp, at idle in park. The "bucking" is not severe(yet) just enough for me and a passenger to feel and be annoyed by. Is this normal for AWD? I do not remember feeling this in the other astro's I tested. I would appreciate any feedback, thanks-Jeff
On all-wheel drive vehicles make sure all four tires are exactly the same type with equal tread depths. Unequal tires cause the gears in the transfer case to bind especially when turning, which causes the bucking.

Sounds like you have a c/v joint beginning to go bad...Could be wrong.... but, I'm not there to test it! Look underneath and see if any c/v boots are torn... that will be your first clue!!
