Question about 1996 GMC Safari

1 Answer

Play in steering and rough riding when stopping or slowing down

I have a 1996 GMC Safari Van they tell me it needs a Drag Link. Is this difficult to repair and could I do this at home? Could it be called something else besides drag link? I am having trouble finding illustrations of it.

Hi:
A drag link is another name for one of the steering arms that connect to your steering gearbox. It usually has at least one Tie Rod end, and another connection to the steering linkage. They are not too hard to change, ;you just need a joint separator tool, which most auto parts stores will loan or sell.
A good idea is to invest in a one year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com For about $20 you will have access to all info on your specific vehicle.

Had the spark plugs and plug wires changed on my 1994 GMC Safari minivan, and now it runs very rough. If I stop, the engine shuts off. Backfires a lot also. The whole van shakes bad going down the road....


If your Safari did not expecience these systoms prior to you changing the plugs and ignition wires, then you may have crossed two or more of these wires when they were repalced.

I have a 2001 GMC Safari van V6 4.3L. The van will RUN at normal temperature and blow warm air but when you come to a stop it blows cold air. What can you tell me about this problem. Changed thermostat and...


Try stopping on a steep incline--does the heater stay warm? If yes, what you have is an air bubble that hangs at the heater hose until pressure from the water pump blows thru it as the engine speeds up. Park on an incline, open the radiator cap, run the engine until the thermostat is open, and fill the radiator to the neck. Wait until the level stops dropping and make sure bubbles don't continue to come up. If they do, you may have a blown head gasket that will keep forming these bubbles until you change the gasket. Please let me know the outcome, as we are getting a lot of these cases and are trying to improve the answers.
