Chevrolet Astro QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had the intake manifold gasket and thermostat replaced at the tune of 676.00 in Jan. Now the van broke down suddenly on a freeway ramp (almost got crushed) and had it towed. My mechanic said the engine is shot, need a new rebuilt. I've maintained this van by the book it has 109k. Does it pay to do this, and are there any guarantees/warantees i should know about. I can't find a decent used vehicle to replace this van. How much should an engine replacement cost?
My door locks operate erratically on thier own when I'm driving. They seem to get really active when I accelerate quickly. I replaced the BCM but that only cured other problems, like the dash cluster going dead and coming back on, the theft deterrent light coming on and beeping this sickly beep, then going off, and the automatic head light now comes on when I start up. I just noticed that the pass. side lock actuator must be going bad because the remote doesn't cause it to lock or unlock that door. I'm going to replace it, but I don't think it will solve the gremlin havin a party with the power locks.

I have a 2001 astro minivan 4.3 liter engine and it will only start if I put starting fluid or mass air sensor cleaner into the intake, but after it starts it will run although its rough and if I give it a lot of fuel it bogs down. What could possibly be the problem?

It is connected to a T connector by the AC unit. Where does the hose connect inside the vehicle?
I've noticed the clutch stops running during the time when the system is still on and blowing (even though the blower high setting is dead). The next day it's deja vue. It blows cold until the system has been on for a while, then the clutch stops running and blows hot until the next day.

I can blow through the valve and the connecting tube. Other than that the engine runs fine. The van sat for a year and I had to replace the CMFI injector unit and r&r of gaskets. I have tested the plenum for leaks.
