1995 GMC Vandura 2500 Problems
An engine vacuum leak may develop from the throttle body gasket causing a higher than normal idle speed. Failed gaskets should be replaced.
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.
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.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.

lots of probloms with engine
I have this van and it has been "rode hard" and taken on some pretty rough steep high country roads and just keeps on going! The engine is very strong even tho' I must admit I've neglected to always change the oil at the right intervals. WORD of CAUTION-keep the rubber window gaskets condtioned-I didn't and they cracked, letting rain seep in causing the window motors to fail! All in all this is a great van for traveling with a comfortable fold down bed and room for your stuff too. I will never sell it-I love it!
