1990 GMC Safari Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1990 GMC Safari based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
Power brake systems using "hydro-boost" may leak power steering fluid from the hydro-boost unit located behind the brake master cylinder. Replacement of the hydro-boost unit is the common repair to correct this concern.
A fluid leak may develop from the transmission output shaft seal. This leak may cause the transmission mount to become oil soaked and require replacement of the mount along with the leak repair.
The idler arm, pitman arm, or center steering link may wear and cause excess play in the steering. If any of these components are replaced, the front end alignment should be checked.
