Question about 1995 Chevrolet Astro

My 1995 Chevrolet Astro-van turns over but won't start

My van would not start after driving to the store. The battery is strong but it has been extremely cold the past few days. I have added gas line antifreeze but it still refuses to start. It acts like it's not getting fuel What else should I try?

    Should the fuel pump make a sound when I turn ignition to the on position? Ihave been told so, but never heard it before.

Check your gas tank to holes...sniff test? Or fill it to the max and it will leak if there's a hole. There could be a hole in the gas tank that allows moisture to get in.

Change your fuel filter locate underneath the van on the left side. If that doesn't work, try cleaning your egr might be sticky due to the carbon buildup.

If it doesn't start, try changing out the spark plug wires, distributor cap and the rotating tip (should come with the distributor cap).

The problem is often a simple one.

Chk. fuse and relay for fuel punp. if that chks. out ok, then you will have to do a fuel pressure test. but after reading your problem, i'am almost positive its your fuel pump. make sure, do the fuel pressure test. all major auto parts stores carry the kit for pressure test, and they also will show you wear and how to hook it up, and what the pressure it should have. good luck.

Astro van won't start

Do you notice crank when you turn over the key in ignition to start. Does it turn over but does not start, or no start nothing at all. ---------- If its not cranking and nothing happens when you turn the key, then its battery and starter related problem, both needs to be inspected.Either battery is not completely charged or its weak battery,that is not holding charge or its faulty battery or its connections are loose.-------- BUT if it is cranking and not starting, this clears that battery has juice in it and battery is doing its job and other possibilities needs to be checked. -------- The other possibilities are ,is the fuel pump coming on when you turn the key to start,is the spark is noticed at spark plug, is the check engine light coming ON.
