1990 Chevrolet G Series Van (G20) 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.

Driveability Problems Due to Internal Distributor Fault

The distributor may develop internal faults. This can cause a rough running engine or stalling condition, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. Our technicians tell us that the distributor should be overhauled or replaced to correct this concern.

Intake Manifold Gasket May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.

I had the same issue as with the idle, turned out to be a combination of a bad EGR valve and I replaces the pick up coil in the distrbutor for 22.00, just knocked out the dist. gear pin with a punch and hammer, put the new one on and it purred like a G20 kitten. Before you do that though check your fuel pressure to be between 9-13 if its lower that may be the prob.
I had the same thing happen on our 1991 g20. Found a fuse for the fuel pump was all it was! Hope this helps!
