Question about 1998 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

Timming? The van doesn't have alot of power on take-off and taps loudly. It idels fine and runs fine on level ground. It bogs down on grades like it doesn't have enough back pressure. Any ideas? Is it something I can take care of myself or am I looking at a garage visit? My e-mail is alanwelch@peoplepc.com .

Replace the fuel filter and if this don't help then you might need a new fuel pump and it is inside the fuel tank

1999 gmc safari van wipers wont work


check fuse, then run a ground wire to the wiper motor and ensure the ground is good. if the wipers start to work then the motor just needs a permanent ground connected to it. if it doesn`t work then check for power at the motor if you have power then tap the motor with a hammer to see if it starts if so then the motor is bad.

The car was running fine, it hesitated once, then about a half a mile later it began to have no power wnd when I gave it gas it would bog down. Then it died and would not start. I have got it to start...


it sounds like your fuel pump may have gone out disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter or the fuel rail which ever is easier to get to, then try to start the car if fuel does not spray from the line you will know that it is the problem.

Lost power to engine


Check make sure all plugs are firing. Sounds like what my 93 Rodeo was doing-Idled okay but very rough when in gear. Turns out only 5 out of 6 plugs were firing due to a defective ignition module- 100 bucks later it works fine.

Hope this helps.

Motor started tapping loudly as if there was no oil, oil level was fine, changed oil sound quieted after 20 minutes, sound came back a couple of days later, went away the last couple of days on short...


hi this could be due to your hydraulic tappets, these will start to rattle if the oil has been low at some stage and the oil was to thin this normally sounds worse in the mornings on first start and gets quieter as the day goes on or disappears altogether, what you could do, is use an engine flush, put it in the engine and run it for a period of time, then empty the oil and refill with a thicker grade oil and see how that goes..hope this helps

Water pump is leaking,my engin is running hotter


if engine is running hotter than normal, test the thermostat in a coffee pot, if it is opening fine, then the water pump is going out, and will definately need to be replaced asap to avoid further and much more costly repairs!!!!

Starter kick back


If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...

Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !

If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.

Good luck !

Engine light


Short the test terminal, and read blinking engine light blinks, count them they will be fast and pause and be fast again each code is 2 digits long. This will help me to solve your problem. Thanks
