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.

Chevrolet Express 1500 Recalls

Engine Stalls From Electrical Module Short

The chassis electrical module can short due to internal contamination. This can result in the vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the chassis electronic module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Natural Gas Leak

Certain vehicles equipped to run on compressed natural gas are being recalled because the high pressure natural gas regulator could develop a leak, increasing the risk of a fire or explosion. Dealers will replace the natural gas regulator to correct this concern.

Insufficient Instrument Panel Padding

Certain vehicles are being recalled because if a crash were to occur not requiring deployment of the front airbags, the head of an unbelted front seat passenger could hit the instrument panel, resulting in personal injury because the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As of this writing, General Motors is still working on a remedy for this concern.

I went to have my van smog check but it failed due to bad O2 sensor Bank 1 sensor 3. replaced a new sensor but still having a note that read on the gauge panel: Service engine soon. What is your suggestion in order for the van to pass the smog check. Your recommendation is highly appreciated.
Purchased the van new. Performed perfectly the 1st year. During the 2nd year at 30k had to replace the front headlights and rear turn signals. At 35k the left rear wheel sensor for the ABS system went out and was replaced. At 51k the Fuel Pump stopped working and was replaced.
I have a beautiful 1999 Chevy Express Conversion Van by Starcraft. The only problem here lately is I have trouble starting it sometimes in damp weather but once cranked it will start all day. My service light never came on.But it just came on and I had it checked out and the code says it is my o2 sensorand I am wondering if that has anything to do with the cranking of it
