Chevrolet Astro ProblemsOutside Door Handles May Break
The outside door handles are prone to breaking—all doors are affected by this condition.
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.
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.

Chevrolet Astro RecallsRecall 05V099000
An interference fit between the lower ball joint rubber boot and the steering knuckle may cause the rubber boot to be cut. This would allow entry of water, dirt, salt, or other contaminants, possibly leading to premature wear. Failure from premature wear could lead to separation of the steering knuckle and lower control arm, which would cause the vehicle to drop at the affected corner. Vehicle handling and braking could be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering knuckles. The recall began April 8, 2004. The GM recall number is 03044.
