1999 astro/4.3L/starts cold /runs 10-15 min. then dies will not start hot new battery.new coil/clean filter/pump 2 yrs old installed new/battery shows 14 amps when running/ won t crank when hot either/...


car shuts off when it gets to normal operating range. it takes 10-15 minutes to reach normal range. causes: low coolant, failing coolant tempurature sensor, air in water pump, check the coolant temp. sensor. if it is bad it will send wrong info to engine when hot, and shut it down. ITS WORTH A TRY!! good-day!

Where is my oil filter located on a 1997 chevy astro van?


Description: The fuel filter looks like a small coffee can, it is approximately 4 inches long and 2 inches in diameter and silver in color.


Location: The filter is located in the fuel line almost directly under the drivers seat, attached to the inside of the frame rail.


Replacement: You MUST discharge the pressure in the fuel system, failure to do this will result in 90 PSI gasoline being sprayed under your car, and on you. Raise the vehicle, if needed. Locate the filter and determine if it is a bolt on or if it has special clips.
  • Bolt on, leave the bracket to the frame tightened, and use TWO wrenches to loosen the lines (failure to use both may damage your fuel lines). Once both sides are loose catch any gasoline that may leak into a safe container. After the leakage has stopped loosen both lines completely, then remove the bracket.
  • Clip On, Remove the bracket holding the filter to the frame and move it away from the frame for more clearance. Ensure you are using the correct size compressor, and clamp it on the line. ëíDangeríí If you have not discharged the fuel pressure, the next step is very dangerous: Hold the filter firmly and slide the compressor into the clip, you should feel a click when it has pushed back the spring, leaving the compressor clip in place slightly twist the line while pulling it away from the filter (if the spring is compressed it should pull away without much force). Repeat this on the other side line.
Most filters will now come out with a slight push towards the front of the van (if not you may need to loosen the fuel line running to the motor) ñ Do Not push on the tank side line, you could damage the pickup inside the tank ñ once it is out make sure you place the new filter in the correct position (yes you can reverse them) Assembly is the reverse of disassembly in this case, However clip style filters do NOT require the tool to be replaced, simply press the line back onto the filter until it clicks.

Air, no heat '98 Astro. No leaks, engine


It sounds to me that you may have 2 problems. 1). Air Lock in the Heater Core. 2). Inactive Heat Damper in the Plenum.

But since you state that the Heater Hoses do not get warm that is indicative of an Air Lock in the Heater Core. This is a relatively simple fix. It is best performed COLD but requires a method of pressurizing the Cooling System. All reputable Auto Parts stores Sell and/or Rent Pumps that temporarily replace the Radiator Pressure Cap for Leak tests and curing Air Lock. The Collant Level must be filled FULL then pressurized and then loosening the Highest Heater Hose at the Firewall so that Air and a Small Amount of Coolant escapes. Once all the Air has escaped tighten the Heater Hose Clamp, remove the Pressure Pump, Restore the Collant Level to FULL, re-install the Pressure Cap and Start the Engine. As it Warms up you should be able to feel coolant running through the Heater Hoses and they should become warm.

Where is the cabin air filter located at and how do i get to it.


It will either be behind your glove box, or will be located under your hood by the firewall.

    Behind the Glove Compartment
  1. Open the glove compartment and remove all the items from inside of it.
  2. Remove the glove compartment assembly retainer screws with a Phillips head screwdriver. Refer to the repair manual for your specific year and model series BMW for the exact location of the screws or carefully look around the perimeter of the interior glove box assembly to locate the screws.
  3. Locate the lower trim panel retaining screws behind the glove box assembly. Remove the screws with a Phillips head screwdriver and then remove the panel.
  4. Remove the foot-well air duct.
  5. Loosen the retaining screws of the control module box to all you to lower it down.
  6. Turn the cabin air filter panel retaining knob counterclockwise to open the panel. Pull the filter removal tab outward to remove the filter.
  7. Use a shop vac to clean out any noticeable debris from the cabin air filter housing interior.
  8. Insert the new filter and reverse the order to reassemble the foot-well air duct, the trim panel and the glove compartment assembly.
  9. Under the Hood
  10. Open the hood and locate the cabin air filter housing. The housing is located near the cowling on the top section of the firewall. Some models place the housing in the middle of the cowling, on both sides--left and right--of the cowling or on the passenger side cowling. Removal of the cowling and placing the windshield wipers in the upward position may also be required on certain models. Some 7-Series BMWs place the filter housings on both the left and right side undercarriage of the hood.
  11. Release the cabin air filter duct clamp. This can either be released by unclipping the air filter duct by pressing a retaining lock with your fingers or using a flathead screwdriver to pry off a retaining rod.
  12. Lift the cover upward--or downward on hood-installed 7-Series BMWs--to reveal the cabin air filter.
  13. Remove the cabin air filter from the air duct. Vacuum the air duct with a shop vac.
  14. Insert the new cabin air filter(s) and reassemble.

How to Fit a Cabin Filter


Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.
