    The engine will turn with the key .It uses unleaded fuel.

    when you say it will turn do you mean by hand or on the key?

    what fuel type is it?

Ok do you have a spark? do you have compression? as both of these are needed to make the engine fire up along with fuel.
you may want to check if the cambelt is still intact too.

Took the old starter out of chevy astro 87 and replaced it with new, when i try to start it makes no sound


Check for power on the small purple wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If here is no power you will need to trace that circuit to see if its the neutral safety switch, ignition switch, or wiring in between.

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting


if your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.
