In a trade I received a 91 chevy Astro van that had been sitting for about a year. I don't know anything about them. The battery was no good so I replaced it and it cranked right up and ran. After a handful of starts it's stopped holding an idea. It will crank and kick over after a few long turns of the key. But it only lasts for 2 seconds before it stalls out. I've tried popping it into gear to move it a but but dies as soon as I put it into any. I can keep it running if I tap the gas every few seconds. I checked the ODB and it pulls no codes. I looked at what I guess you would consider the fuel injection and both are spray fuel into the engine. Maybe I'm about to replace the fuel filter then pump if it doesn't work. I'm trying to not put a lot of money it since I wat to get rid of it. Any thoughts are appreciated. If im going down the wrong cheak list please let me know.
There is no compression in one cylinder. You can hear the valve leak when idling..I would like to get both head's valves serviced. And would like to have someone to do this.
I changed both brake calipers and bleed them now when I crank my van the abs makes a humming noise

Mechanic says "junk" it. Can I get used/salvage part to replace the exhaust?
The hose is broke on my astro van and I don't know what it is or what its connected to so I can replace it. I can't find a diagram or any info on this. The van stopped running over a month ago and I replaced the fuel pump and ignition module and noticed the hose. It isn't tore, it is just in half.
I can find the turn-signal flasher under the dash, but cannot locate the hazard flasher. Where is it hidden? ThaNKS

The speedometer needle stopped moving. It just lays at zero. When I set the cruise control, it works,holds the Vehicle at a steady speed, but the speed indicating needle shows no movement,stays at zero.
Cannot locate the fuse, is there a specific acronym for the Dash-Board in the Fuse box? Cannot determine which is the correct acronym. Dash-board just went blank, can't figure what speed I'm going. Please Help!
Right front power door window will go down but it is very slow going up.
Where is the EGR valve located on 91' astro van
The air conditioning was workly extremely well, then went out in a second as the clutch broke. I have a 1991 Chevy Astro Van that a dealership just retrofitted for the new refrigerant a couple of years ago. Can you give me an estimate for repairing the clutch? And if everything was working great before it broke, do you think the compressor should be replaced? That would be more than the van is worth. Thanks for your help!
