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.

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.

Check Engine Light With Code P1870

Vehicles equipped whit a 4 speed automatic transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.

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.
