They used it to run errands with a scanner hooked up. Tough and reliable, your Astro minivan offers powerful truck-like towing and performance. Then unhook gas lines and be careful not to break them unless y … ou are getting a fuel pump from the junk yard then it will more then likely have the old ones on it. Hydrolock may occur while the engine is running, the work of the compression stroke being supplied by engine's rotational inertia. This will be my final post in the thread, unless I am directly asked a question.
Me too - leaky coil I just finished up a couple months of fooling around with a 97 Astro that would quit without warning, fire back up sometimes, sometimes not. Remove the air duct attached to the throttle body, and spray a liberal amount of the carburetor spray into the throttle body. I had to enlarge the opening some to install the one I bought from Autozone. Everything else I tried Champion, Bosch, you name it performed less well. If not, I'll make it free.
If the battery measures above 12. Since the car started for you after the fuel pump was changed the original problem was the fuel pump. The cap that was on there was aluminum oxide based and was put there by the original shop that did the tune up. When it was damp out, the coil case would become wet, and the. Hell, even with the tools it's a pain.
Although I paid a pretty penny for the work, at least I know it was done by people who know what they're doing and have access to parts designed specifically for the engine. It didn't cost me anything to have the original shop take a look at it, since it was a recheck and they treat it as warranty work. I also replaced the filter. Recently, we found that the fuel pump relay connector near the fuel tank on the drivers side ground wire went bad and would sporadically cut out, leaving me to wiggle the wire and get on my way. It is on the Passenger side near the front of the Engine Compartment. Unplug the wires going to the tank, put a jack under the tank Perferablly on two by fours Undo the straps going under tank. Well, now I can say, with only a little trepidation, that it is finally fixed.
You can plug the reader in, turn on the car, follow the reader's instructions and retrieve any trouble codes that might relate to the stalling. It would run all day one day, then not start the next. Sorry for rough answer but you didn't give much away in your question. The cable insulation had melted or worn through, causing intermittent shorts. The independent shop dropped the transmission pan, inspected the fluid and visually inspected the transmission.
But there was no doubt it needed a pump. I saw that the sides of the coil were burned looking. Diagnosing a no-start condition uses a process of eliminating the possible culprits to pinpoint the cause. I hope this helped need to know how to remove the steering colum? You will need to remove the steering wheel to gain access to a screw which holds the cylinder in the steering colum. If a hot engine won't start, all you can do is let it sit and cool off. They did this, and still claimed that it was only running a bit rough.
I'm working outside because I can't get in the garage because the van won't start and I'm cursing the waning daylight. The make, model or circumstance that van stopped working etc. Thanks for the help guys, and if you want to give donations. Usually, it would restart and run fine after letting it cool down. Most common causes of this problem are vacuum leaks.
A fully charged battery will measure 12. I asked politely if they would pay for the work if it didn't fix the issue, which they declined to do. If a spark is not present, replace the spark plug wires, and distributor cap and rotor. If they refuse, can I take it elsewhere and bill them? I suspected the fuel pump, and took it to a local garage the next day. Check the vacuum hose on the passenger side engine compartment first.
