Question about 1998 GMC Savana

1 Answer

Some days my van starts, other days it won't. It will turn over and start but something is telling it to shut down. I can start it one day and the next it won't start at all. Then it will stay that way for awhile [ week[s] and then all of the sudden start. Frustrating. Replaced fuel pump and all other fuel related items. Battery is good. Could it be something in the security system?

Van just shuts off while driving.

You probably have a weak crank shaft position sensor. Also try changing the oil and filters.

Hello, I owned a class C RV, 1998 Chateau that was built from a Chevy van and with 4300 Vortec, 5.7L engine. While we came back from a camping trip, I noticed the volt meter needle decreaseed rapidly and...

The alternator should be charging at 13.5 to 14.5vdc at the battery at engine idle. Some vortec engines had fuseable links running from the alternator.
You could have a bad ground or a cable may be shorted, a stuck relay or something not turning off and causing a drain also. You can run what is called a "parasitic draw test" to determine the source. I hope this helps.
