Question about 1993 Chevrolet Astro
I HAVE A CHEVROLET ASTRO 1995. FOR SOME REASON IT HAS NOT BEEN WORKING. AT TIMES IT JUST TURNS OF BY ITSELF WHILE DRIVING IT. WHEN I TRY PRESS ON THE GAS IT STARTS LIKE A SORT OF CHOKING SOUND AND IT TURNS OFF.. I HAVE ALREADY DONE THE TUNE UP
Try cleaning the egr valve. Worked for me.
The egr valve is located behind the air intake.
-Remove the air intake.
-Using 10 mm socket, universal joint adapter, extension and ratchet, remove the two 10 mm bolts securing the egr valve to the intake manifold.
-Using the extension helps, since it's a tight area to work in. Makes the removal and installation so much easier.
-Be careful not to ruin the gasket. You can replace it but you don't need to if you're careful while taking it off.
-Using a metal pick and carb cleaner, clean the egr valve until most of the carbon buildup is gone.
-Make sure the solenoid can move freely, WD-40 works well to lubricate the solenoid.
-Install egr valve, tighten bolts nice and tight, you can torque it to spec if you want (15-25 ft-lbs?).
You'll probably have to clean it every year...try not to buy cheap gas...as in crappy gas...Shell works well...Good luck
