1998 Chevrolet Express 1500 Problems

The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

Instrument Panel Lights Flickering and Exterior Lights Intermittent

The headlight switch used on the Chevrolet Express is known to fail through normal operation. Since the headlight switch is also integrated into the interior lights, a malfunctioning switch can cause issues with interior lights as well.

  • Symptoms of a failed headlight switch include:
  • Headlights and taillights failing to turn on or off
  • Interior lights flicker, or fail to turn on or off
  • Gauge cluster lighting off or flickering with headlights on
  • Parking light malfunctions  

This issue is well known with General Motors Trucks and SUVs, and is solved by testing and, if needed, replacing the headlight/dimmer switch. Bad grounding wires at the tail-lights, and dirty/corroded tow package wires can also lead to some of these issues. 

One or More Rear Lights May Not Work

The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.

I own a 1998 chevrolet Express, I don't know if it's a 1500 or 2500 it's a v8, but I don't know if it's a 5.0L or a 5.7L
Best vehicle i have ever owned. I love it. Hauls my family of 7 around along with all of our luggage, and still has plenty of room to spare. Never had to do anything but change the fluids (and one O2 sensor)
Mine is 12 now and have had no major problems so far. Great reliable van.
