I thought the filter might be the issue here, on carb cars the engine tends to stall out with a plugged filter.

You'll need to crawl under the van and look at the exhaust pipes before the catalytic converter. You will see it once you take a peek.

95 chevy g20 van started to lose power while driving and began to spit and sputter


Ck your alternator output, should be between 13.8 and 14.2 volts, A bad alt will cause the battery to discharge when driving, Once voltage drops to a certain level (9.8 I think ) the ecm starts to shut down causing all kinds of strange problems, like running bad ,trans not shifting right, even the radio ! It happened to me in my 95 chev p/u

I need a fan belt diagram chevy van 350 tbi -88


Be vary careful I think that it may have a reverse flow water pump. You can install the belt two different ways. Both will work but the wrong way will shorten you engine life a whole lot. Try your local library for a book on you car.

Whining sound from under van only when i push the gas.


The serpentine belt is the most common cause for whining sound when accelerating, try to understand if noise is coming from serpentine belt.

Also check power steering belt under steering column, and also the rotor and chain, thei do not make whining noise , but can make noise when accelerating.

The belt is first suspect.

I have a Chevy book covering that year. Code12 is the code that flashes to let you know the ECM is working properly and there is no problem. As to the 11 code there is none in the book for that number.
