The transmission has internal failure. Clutch packs possibly worn out, shift solenoids failed, you need a transmission guy. And from the sound of this, probably a transmission.

Has the 'Check Engine' light come on? I had this problem at 30,000 miles and the trouble codes set were transmission component slipping. Ultimately required replacement of the transmission.

1994 astro van does it have to be drove in overdrive


I would say it could. Especially for in town driving. It would help with the "searching for the right gear" that sometimes occurs at less than highway/open road speeds.

Also for any towing or heavier loads I would recommend NOT using overdrive.

For open road/highway I would use overdrive to get better MPGs.

Hope this helps.

What is an 02 sensor upstream 98 astro van


02 sensor is your oxygen sensor, 98 chevy astro carries 3 oxygen sensor. i belived your bad sensor is on the passenger side by the exhaust manifold but if not try the drivers side all the oxygen sensor for this van are the same. you need to go under the van to replace it, if is to hard to get it out turn your van for five minutes then turn it off and try again, be carefull not to burn your self. the one close to the catalytic converter is the downstream oxygen sensor ok, good luck!!!!!!
