A mechanic (not at the dealer) told us that we would have to buy a new computer for the van. He told us the total cost would be $850.00. I found a person on ebay who sells a used one (which he matches up with your pin) for $79.00. He is a top seller on ebay with no bad reviews/complaints. We have seen the codes for the van and have fixed/remedied all issues but the check engine light still remains on. Should we follow through and get the computer from ebay? How can one purchase a brand new computer for a 2000 chevy express van? Was the mechanic trying to rip us off? Thank you

The temperature guage moves to a hot temp and then back to normal repeatedly during operation. I had a radiator leak and put in stop leak. What causes this?

Ive parked my van because it started squeaking in the front. What causes this?

Shifts very hard with a thump from first to second gear and a bit less from second to 3rd. Can feel the shift hard in the rear only. Nothing from transmission area.

starter was just replaced month ago and now van wont do nothing when turn the key, battery is good and starter makes a noise when turn the key like its trying to engage, could this starter be bad

what would cause this do I need a new starter or a starter relay

Sat in Driveway for two days, very cold weather.

front blower is innop., checked 20 amp fuse, replaced relay already, but wanted to make sure it wasn't the fuse before repl. blower motor

Looking for advice/direction on where to start diagnosing the 1.6 AMP draw. Short to ground, bad relay, pull one fuse at a time while measuring AMPS? If the AMPS drop then check each component on that fuse/circuit? What are acceptable parasitic drain levels... 25-30 mA ?

Trying to install a bulk head and need to remove the side panels but the seatbelt height adjusters do no allow the upper trim panel to come off.

I checked fuses there ok

It has the right amount of power steering fluid. Can't seem to find the cause of it

EGR System:Unsupported- EVAP. System: NotCompleteed-
Catalytic Converter: NotCompleted- Secondary Air: Unsupported

the van turn on but when im driving for like 5 minutes go off. Why is that?


Sometimes it sounds like it is the battery is dead, sometimes it sounds like the starter not enough power to turn the engine and sometimes it acts like nothing is wrong with it, please help if you may have an idea of what's going on. Thank you.

Took the engine oil pan down cleaned every thing up changed the filter l and filled it with oil before putting it back up ) on the pan put everything back together and filled the oil to the proper level and now I don't have oil pressure
Before I did all of this everything was working perfectly oil pressure was good didn't hear any ticking of the lifters nothing . The only thing wrong was the pan was leaking oil around the edge ! Was just wondering if any one had any ideas of was would cause this ?
