Question about 1995 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

97 Chevy Astro van lugs, like it misses, B4 finally cranking on

97 Chevrolet Astro van 2wd. When I start it, it acts like the battery is almost dead- lugging, sluggish, missing kinda sound and feel.

But the battery cranks pretty long until it starts. I replaced the timing chain. Do I need cam and crank position sensors, or cap & rotor?

I had a buddy check a constant-on 'check engine' light with OBD2 meter. A Diagnostic Trouble Code of p1345 showed up. Are the position sensors easy to change?

    Yes, mechanic checked too. Dots aligned vertically with shaft.

    Thanks carhob!

    Thanks carhob, I replaced the cam sensor and that wasn't it. It was the distributor out quite a bit. That cleared the engine trouble light and starts clean now.



    Sidenote, I had a DTC trouble code when I checked it without the air filter in. MAF air sensor was ok but p0102 code threw me.

    are you sure when you installed your timing chain marks on gears were well aligned?

2000 chevy astro van everything dead no power tonothing is there a mainfuse somewhere all the fuses are good


Did you check for voltage, anywhere, use a test lite follow the positive battery connections check for voltage. Did you check fuse circuit for voltage? Even if the fuse is good, if no voltage at fuse circuit, the circuit is still dead. Of course voltage is no good without ground.

The battery circuits, positive and negative good?

97 Chevy Astro will not start


Sounds like your battery / starter may be dead. Do you get a clicking sound at all? A click will indicate a dead starter, a buzz indicates battery issues.
