Question about 1994 Chevrolet Astro

2 Answers

Our 1994 Chevy Astro EXT will run fine for about the first 15 mins, and then suddenly start surging, lose power, trans won't shift. In fact, have to drop it to low gear in order to keep going. When all this starts, the anti-lock brake light comes on, and all the guages go nuts. If the anit-lock brake light goes back off, it will run fine again. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?

Sounds like u may have a short in the wiring or could be a sencer that has something to do with the anti lock brake system.

1994 Ford Escort, auto trans, 83,000 mi, randomly won't shift from 1st to 2nd, randomly loses power at hwy speeds


It could be an internal problem with a pump, or it could be it needs to be serviced really bad. Most 'oil change' places can also do transmission services... I'd try that first, before paying a big repair bill to a shop. good luck.

Transmission (1994 astro van ) shifts fine sometimes and other times feels like it stuck in 4th gear. i changed the filter and flushed the trans.Whats up with that?


Its more likely the tranny shift solenoids or the power wire going to the tranny. If the tranny loses its ignition feed (12Volts) it will default into limp home mode. This means neither shift solenoid has power and will be in the off position. When both shift solenoids are in the off position this is normally third gear. It will be very labored taking off from a stop being in third gear, but will allow you to still move (thus limp home). Astro vans were not known for it, however full size pickups with the same engine and tranny, would experience a bad ignition switch. It would disable the tranny circuit and no power would get to it, same symptoms. If it sometimes works it won't be a bad fuse, best to have it diagnosed at a reliable transmission shop to verify. Its not as expensive as a tranny overhaul.

it does sound like a solenoid in the trans. the problem with addditive is that it has detergent in it and will loosen dirt and sediment that has collected in the trans mission this will the flow through the tran and clog parts like the shift solenoids. hope this helps some

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1995 Chevy Astro 2wd


do the pin point tests, these start witjh running a trouble code test, autozone and kragen will do this for free, if u haven't had the trans apart then cross out any crossed wiring issues, but I do think you will find a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid, either the solenoid has failed or the connector has a problem on the outside of the trans.
