89 Astro Van. It doesn't want to start. Acts like it isn't getting any gas. I do not have a book for the van to see what fuses need to be replaced.

I have a 1986 Chevry Astro Van that I learned abot the hard way that was doing what yours is doing. In my case, after being ripped off by one fast buck mechanic after another, i learned it is the oil pump computer that probably needs to be replaced. If it does not read the right oil pressure, it won't start. But, what myinsance mechanic did was to run a wire from the ignition to the starter, etc. Cost was $11.--/ after he first pt in a starter, fuel pump, new main engine compter, etc, none of this helped it start. Then he did the hot wire thing, bypassing the oil pump computer. I undersatnd that compter is about $65.00. I got ripped off to the tune of 1,000.00 befoer thru trial and error the real cause was discovered.

Hard to turn the steering wheel?

on the astro vans they used a hydroboost power brake booster which is driven off the power sterring pump. If you are having brake and steering problems you should check to make sure your belt is still on if it is you probably need a new powersteering pump. You may also check your power sterring pump pulley.if this helps please rate
