Ok Here is what you need to do this job
1. #8 tork head wrench
2. # 3 tork head wrench
3. New cylinder or lock buy at junk yard or from dealer or lock smith with keys.
4. Tube of lock tight
5. steering wheel removal tool Rent it from Schucks
6. steering wheel spring compression tool Rent it as well.
7. Two dental picks to remove spring.
Now make thew wheels straight and pull the horn button off should just pop off, next you will see a nut 3/4 inch remove the nut now find the right size of threaded bolts out of the kit and put them in the holes with puller over the steering column remove steering wheel. Forgot to mention remove the metal cup and plastic ring held on by a3 philips screws. This is your horn button, next put the U shaped compression tool on the bolt that you took the nut off and compress the spring 1/4 of an inch to 3/8's of an inch. Now take the picks and get them under steel ring slide the ring over the steering bolt and pull clamp off now remove plastic plate you are now where you can get to the 2 screws on top to tighten the steering wheel. you will see a screw just at the end of the cylinder lock remove the one screw and pull the cylinder lock out, put a drop of lock tight on each screw and tighten down look to see if you see a wire by the lock ring is sticking up it will have a 45 bend in the copper wire there will be two one side by side this has to be pulled out along with the plastic holder that holds the two wires in this also holds the lock in as well as the one screw, install the new lock put lock tight on the screw and install new cylinder lock and key once you have done all of this leave it apart and get back to me so I can tell you how to remove the bueaty ring to get to the screw on the back side.

What you have to do is check and see if you have fuel pressure.You have to remove the engine cover to check it.If you don`t have a pressure tester then remove the air cleaner hose to the engine and spray it with carb.cleaner or brake cleaner.If it starts for a few seconds then it is more than likely a fuel pump.If it does not start then you have to check for spark at the spark plugs.Make sure you check more than one plug.If no spark then you have to check the distributor cap and rotor.Make sure the rotor is good and cap also.Things that can cause no spark are the ignition module,coil,and cap and rotor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Took the old starter out of chevy astro 87 and replaced it with new, when i try to start it makes no sound


Check for power on the small purple wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If here is no power you will need to trace that circuit to see if its the neutral safety switch, ignition switch, or wiring in between.

1996 Chevy Astro Van--"Will not


I would check the rotor very carefully. They tend to burn a hole through the plastic under the center tab. It's hard to see sometimes. The spark follows that path instead of to the wire terminals. You may just want to try a new distributor cap and rotor.
