1997 Chevrolet Astro Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The outside door handles are prone to breaking—all doors are affected by this condition.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The power door locks may stop working in one or more doors due to a failed actuator. Replacement of the failed actuator should correct this concern.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

On vans with rear AC, the AC may stop blowing cold air due to a damaged AC line near the back of the engine. It is common for these lines to rub on the engine block, causing a hole in the line and a refrigerant leak.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

Brakes -- Verified

Power brake systems using "hydro-boost" may leak power steering fluid from the hydro-boost unit located behind the brake master cylinder. Replacement of the hydro-boost unit is the common repair to correct this concern.
