    i removed the air filter assembly and the serpentine belt. when i got to the alternator i removed the two front bolts and the wiring. But when it would budge i tried reaching behind it to find a third bolt, which was mentioned in some forums, and could get a good angle to remove it. any ideas on how to get to the bolt?

I just did this on my 96. You have to go thru the dog house and you should be able to get to the other 2 bolts. There is also on plug on the back that we had to get at thru the dog house also. A real pain in the ****. Hopes this helps

1997 Chevrolet astro van replace alternator at first it charges then 30 seconds later it stops charging.

You would need to check the circuit from the dash to the alternator and from the alternator to the starter or battery.
It could be a defective voltage regulator inside the alternator.

My 1997 chevrolet astro is eating my batterys and i checked all the basics like lishts radio ect.

Sounds like the alternator isn't working properly. If the battery is being "cooked" or overcharged the voltage regulator (built into the alternator) is broken. If it's not being charged enough, same problem. Either way, I believe you'll need to replace the alternator or at the very least have a shop replace the voltage regulator.

Fuel pump

The fuel pump is in the tank. You will have to lower the tank, and remove a locking ring from the tank to get the pump out. It helps to drain the tank if you can.
