Question about 2000 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

My 2000 Chevy Astro Passenger Van has 150,500 miles on it. Generally speaking, it operates fine; however, lately, whenever I start to accelerate from an idling position, the acceleration is rough and difficult to gain speed. What is your suggestion? Also - a not-so-important issue, but would like to know an answer regardless - I have had the automatic window motors replaced 3 times. What is the deal with these motors - in other words, what causes them to burn out so quickly? As an added note - only recently the side view mirror motor stopped working. All all of these ''automatic'' items connected to one thing?

    I probably could use another tuneup. The car does run fine in idle. Each time I replace the window motors with new ones - so I am wondering what in the world makes them burn out. The last time I had these fixed, it wasn't a month later that I either could not get the window down or when the window was down, I could not get it back up. Since then I am now hesitant to open the windows but so far for fear they will not close back.



    Also, with regard to the side view mirrors - I am unable to adjust either one automatically.

When was your last tune up?
Plugs and wires.....and maybe a cap, rotor and filters won't hurt.
If you have just had a tune up.........and acceleration is still sluggish.........Is the transmission starting off in first gear?
Other things could be low compression and /or dragging brakes.
If the idle is smooth....I would think the fuel injectors are OK.

Most window motors go bad from "non use".
Motors that are used daily hardly ever go bad.
Are you replacing them with used ones?

Most window motors that do stop working........if taken apart and just cleaned internally.......work just fine after.

Can you control one mirror and not the other?
If yes we can assume the contacts in the switch are OK.
Most likely the mirror itself is defective.

1999 ASTRO VAN ACCELERATES WITH AC ON


It is perfectly normal for the idle speed to increase with the AC on. This is done to ensure that adequate coolant flow is available for the increased strain the compressor puts on the engine.

If the idle increase is too high, there is a safety problem. There is an idle adjustment that can be made to reduce RPM to factory specification when the AC is on.
