Chevrolet Astro QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My van acts like its not getting gas but you can stomp the gas (clear her throat) and it will seem to clear up for a while (sometimes) Air conditioner makes it worse but still does it with air off. SCanner says "no problem".
My rear AC works sporadically. When it works it cools fine, when it doesn't it won't blow at all. Sometimes you can shut the front doors hard and it will come on but not always.
the rear ac works sporadically and is cold. When it runs it will work on all speeds. Sometimes when it is not working you can shut the driver or passenger door hard and it will come on and work but sometimes not.

2000 Chevy Astro AWD
Had to recharge battery after sitting this winter. Started right up first attempt. next day will turn over, but not stay running. Before sitting past winter, was having difficulty staying running, after a few miles would chug and eventually die and not restart. Would have a better chance at starting if I let it sit for a day after running. Any idea what this could be?
It will allow me program any one of my three remotes, but when I try to program a second remote, it will not work. I am at a loss as to why I can't program my other remotes.
park it makes grinding noise, van still rolls back in gear,,, wont drive.when in gear,,maybe possible cable broke, feels like its not catching gears, thers still transmission oil, starts fine just wont drive at all..
I basically want to know what have I got myself into. I can not find anything period on the internet giving me any kind of an idea of what i'm up against. If you can give me any info, tips, or let me know if I'm gonna have to have some special tools and what not, I would greatly be appreciated.
It just started without indicating any problems prior.
i replaced the filter but no change
It has 250,000 miles on the engine. About how much should it cost me to replace the timing chain/belt ?
I slowly turned the key in the ignition (part way). But BEFORE the key turned all the way, to actually turn over (crank) the engine, I heard a REALLY loud "pop" sound like an air rifle, and smoke came out (seen at right window). Now the van was NOT running yet. I waited a moment and then turned the key all the way, and the van started fine. The gauges were fine, and I drove home (18 miles) without incident. So what WAS that? Any ideas?
I replaced the sensor with another, and I still get the codes. I checked the wiring harness and getting voltage. I made sure the connection was secure as well. Not sure where to go from here. Its due for smog and cannot fix.
The wipers stay on at all times when the vehicle is on. Have to disconnect the battery so the light do not kill the battery. Changed the turn signal/brights mechanism on the side of the steering column and the light switch.
An inversion of polarity of the battery made a short circuit. Nothing more ignites.
Is there a general fuse?
Right above my oil filter I'm leaking a lot of oil. I've had people say it's coming from what looks like where the engine mounts to the transmission. And also could be a o ring or gasket?
