I need to figure out which shifter cable to order for this van. I've called every wrecking yard and parts store near me but nobody can help. So I've gotta order it online but don't know vehicle specific part to order.

van studdered and stalled in driveway. showed spark but not fuel delivery: changed fuel filter (not dirty) and checked fuel pressure (but not measured)...good. Then fuel in TBI but no spark (where did it go?) replaced ICM...success! three days later (daily use) won't restart after 15 minute trip. Pay tow bill and 30 minutes later (after checking fuse...was good) cranks right up. Now can't rely on once trusty van...and lost for next steps since most recent no restart was no fuel in throttle body but some (orange) spark. Sporatic CES light (but not unusual as it has a stuck lifter) also cannot check it a it goes out before I can get to a reader. Suggestions much appreciated.

I think it is electrical. fule pump still comes on when turning the switch on. doesn't sound like the timming belt!

In the 1981 Chevrolet Light Duty Truck Service Manual, On page 8A - 2 fig 8A - 1 Fuse Panel shows two circuit breakers for the "G" and one for the C-K. There is no circuit break on the panel. Question: Where is the circuit breaker on the 1981 Chevy G-10 L6 4.1 L van?

I tried turning on my hazard lights and found out the passenger side was the only side that was blinking.. That was last Thursday. I changed the bulbs sense. Still not working. How do I solve the problem?


I bought a transmission under the assumption from seller that it would fit my 2001 Isuzu rodeo. Wrong. Was wondering how I can find out what year it does go to so I can either sell it to the right vehicle or find a vehicle to put it in.

I have replaced the thermostat. When I went to do this the bottom half of the thermostat was gone,so far I have found no particles from the old thermostat. I also replaced the radiator, checked the water pump. It also sounds like there is a leak in the exhaust manifold. It runs about 30 miles on the open rd. before it starts getting hot. If i dont tighten the cap down all the way I seem to get a little further. The fan seems to be working properly but not exactly sure how to test it except it seems to be running properly. Could the thermostat pieces have clogged the circulation in the motor causing it not to cool properly? Should I add an electric fan? The previous owner did away with the AC as it is being used as an ice cream trk. I haven't had any diagnostics run on it as of yet since I thought the radiator and other stuff would solve the problem. Could a blown head gasket cause this issue and is there any way to check other than compression check? Frustrated.

Need. To change fuel filter don't know where it is

when im driving the headlights go out then I turn on the bright lights then they go out and after a few seconds or sometimes maybe a minute later they come back on. I do have daytime running lights.

This has strange head lights they have heavy wire leads instead of blades. The 4 light systems I'm use to high beam all 4 lights are on.

My chevy van has been stalling when it gets heated up and the outside temperature is 70+ degrees. It seems that after running in the heat the oil pressure begins to drop when idling. Mechanics have said it is the transmission but I have been running the van fine in the Winter for 2 years with no problems. I think there is a hose or pipe that is heating up the oil or gas and at a certain point it is evaporating and not making it into the engine. any ideas?

I cannot find the part# for a/c and heater control unit that is on the dashboard.AC delco part# 15-71270 says it only fits 82-89...are they the same part?

Air conditioning does not blow cold air in the rear of the van. What can I check to see where the problem is. Evaporator in the rear if it has one, refrigerent leak?

how much oil is needed in the differential ?


I need instructions for replacing an alternator on my van. I understand it has a belt tightener which can a little tricky and dangerous to work with. Once I replace the alternator, what is best way to retighten the belt with the belt tightener? I am pretty sure that the engine size is 5.7 liters.

My van died while driving. I tested the fuel pressure when I got it home and assumed it was the fuel pump when I got a zero pressure reading. I replaced the fuel pump assembly, fuel pump relay and the fuel filter. The van ran just fine for about 140 miles then it died while driving just like before. After dropping tank a srcond time, I did some futher testing and found the circut to the fuel pump was dead. What other than what I replaced would make the electircal system to the pump go dead?
