SOURCE: What type of oil does

It was filled at factory with 5W30 conventional oil. As it gets more miles on it I would use 10W30. Its thicker & wont burn or leak so fast.

SOURCE: What type of antifreeze Do I put in my 2000 Chevy

Factory came with Dex-cool. That is a GM style. If you have not owned the Astro all of it's life use the Universal style. That will mix with any brand. Use a antifreeze tester( couple dollars) and get it at least
down to the record low for where you live.

If you are speaking of the main serpentine belt, a tool must be used to turn the belt tensioner against its spring tension thus making the belt loose.

Oil type for a 2004 Chevy astro cargo van


Usually 10w30 depending on your climate. Best to check owners manual, but 10w30 is the most common oil used unless it's a diesel then use 15w40

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Most of the antifreeze these days can be mixed with any color. As long as it is one of those types, there should be no sound for alarm. Even so, I would pay close attention to the levels of the coolant and the performance. If you feel any difference, flush the system and refill it with your brand. I really don't believe it will cause problems, it is just a safety net. That's all.

2005 equinox blows cool air until engine has been running. then much later when heat is on heat begins to feel a [tad] lukewarm after then. what type or brand of coolant should be used in this vehicle/...


It sounds like your thermostat is going bad. However if you start noticing any liquid in your floorboard the heater core is on it's last leg. Check your manufacturer's specs before adding any anti-freeze. More than likely your Chevy requires only the use of DexCool antifreeze. It is very important to be sure that you do not ever mix brands of antifreeze if they require DexCool. Mixing any other coolant with DexCool will cause a chemical reaction causing the liquid to turn to gel. You can end up with internal corrosion of vital engine parts, engine lock up, and serious overheating as a result. As a general rule for engine safety and performance you should always check to make sure that you are adding the same color of coolant to what is already in the car. If it's green don't add orange. Before changing colors (types) of antifreeze in your vehicle, you will need to flush out your engine till it all runs out.

Its a connector under the hood behind the antifreeze and winshield washer bottles. You'll have to remove them to replace the plug. The dealer will have a replacement that you can splice in.

2005 Chevy astro van, 4.3L A/c, Blower motor,


It could be a bad blower motor - tap on the blower motor with the end of a hammer when you have the switch in the on position - if it comes on then it is a bad blower motor. If it doesn't come on I would check to make sure you are getting power and ground to the HVAC control head.
