SOURCE: my steering wheel on my van is loose

I think the problem you have is the steering assembly being loose.

To repair this, you must remove the steering wheel and work slowly down the column assembly, removing the indicator switch, ignition switch and other assorted springs and things. Lay out the removed parts in the order and orientation you remove them, take digital pictures or draw sketches at all stages, watch the spring placements. I also unplug the column looms to give you more room by moving the switches away for the area in the column where you are working.

Once you get far enough down the column you will see the three bolts that are loose, hidden in a sub assembly. I have only been able to tighten two of these over the years. This is a common fault.

Rebuild the column using the reverse of the order you removed it.

Good luck

Sounds to me like the hydroboost system has a stuck biass valve in the hydrobooster. The sytem works both the brakes and the steering.

SOURCE: how do you replace alternator in 2002 chevy astro

Sounds like the "long bolt" is frozen. It goes through the alternator housing and gets corroded. Also make sure the small bracket on the back is unbolted.

Your van don't have the regular air (vacum) power brake booster, your has a hydraboost brake booster, which is power by your power steering pump, if power steering pump goes bad you will not have power steering or brakes, brake peddle will feel very hard and will take alot of pressure on the brake peddle to stop your van, more the likely your power steering pump is bad.

Where are yhe fuses located on a 2000 chevy astro van located


Have you checked your freon level? The compressor will not engauge when the R134 level is too low .More than likely you need to recharge the system after 14 yrs you may have a small seal leak. Try picking up a recharge kit with a gauge attachment. This has worked well for me on my 3 Astros I currently own. Othwise the fuse box is on the drivers side left of the steering column.

How do i get the battery out of a chevy van(1988)i took the fuse box out,cross bar,disconected all the wires to the battery,but i can not figure out how to slide the battery out of there.there is no room


first there is a 1/2" or 13mm not sure which bolt behind the battery which is used as the battery hold down block. you need a socket and a long extention. if it seems like its not coming out, it may be that the bottom nut has corrode and broken loose, or at least just spinning is position. while it may be ackward the battery should lift up and out from there. in front of the van, driver side but outside not inside the van. you said something about removing a fuse box- that was not a neccesary thing to have done. at leastt not in an astro van, if you have a larger van it may be different. hope this helps.
