Question Asked: heater problems
October 26, 2014, 05:59 PM
My heater works fine on low fan speed, but when
I put the fan on high it blows hot air for a short time then it starts to get cool. I can put it back on low fan speed and it gets hot again almost immediately. What would cause this? The motor itself stays at full operating temp.
Question Asked: Why master cylinder keeps going out.
September 26, 2014, 05:53 PM
This is a 1985 Chevy 2500 pickup. I have put two master cylinders on and am about to put a third in three years. They all keep losing fluid from the back reservoir and leaking it into the brake booster. This truck gets driven very little, usually only about six months out of the year and then usually just short trips locally. what is causing these master cylinders to be going out so often?
Question Asked: brake reservoir

This question is in regards to a 1985 Chevy 2500. Is the smallest and rearmost brake fluid reservoir for the front brakes or the rear brakes?
Question Asked: Should I change the strut or the whole strut assembly?
September 18, 2014, 02:22 PM
I am about to change the shocks and struts on this vehicle. Should I change out just the strut or the whole strut assembly, including the coil spring? Do I need a coil spring compressor if I change these out and will a front end realignment be required afterwards?
Question Asked: Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist not working
July 22, 2014, 06:26 PM
I just noticed the rear parking assist does not work and neither do the lights at the rear lift gate. What could be the problem? If it is a fuse, I can't tell which one. Does the plug at the under the right rear of the van have the wiring in it for the sensors? Do these sensors work off of a 12 volt power supply?
Question Asked: Water under carpet.
June 09, 2013, 07:03 PM
I am getting wet carpet more on the right than the left. Does anyone know where the A/C drain hose is on this vehicle or the Chevrolet Uplander minivans? I can't find the hose to see if it is plugged.
Question Asked: Transmission leak
May 17, 2013, 03:48 PM
This is my mom's car. She has less than 70,000 miles on it and has a transmission leak. Are these cars prone to having transmission leaks? I think it is coming from somewhere on the drivers side. Where could this fluid be leaking from? It is not a super bad leak, but is leaving spots on the driveway and she said that she had to get fluid added sometime ago and it is low again. I don't know how much fluid was added then or how long ago it was.
Question Asked: Reduced engine power
February 05, 2013, 07:32 PM
While driving the truck will go to reduced engine power. I can stop, turn the key off and restart within a few seconds. It will then run fine, sometimes for a few miles, sometimes for weeks. Some times it will clear the engine hours, sometimes it won't. Also sometimes the check engine light will come on, sometimes it does not. What could be the cause of this? I have not had the codes read yet.
Question Answered: wet floor boards
July 22, 2014, 06:55 PM
Mine did the same thing. I let it dry really well and smeared some silicone around the tube with my finger, as it appeared the water was draining down the inside instead of the outside of the firewall due to the hose being too short.
Question Answered: When push on brakes my car shakes.
May 17, 2013, 03:31 PM
Get the rotors turned. You must have overheated the brakes due to hard braking and warped the rotors.
Question Answered: Where do we put the brake fluid.
February 28, 2012, 06:36 PM
Look in the owners manual, it should tell you. Also look near the firewall on the drivers side.
Question Answered: white smoke

It could also be the normal sweatting of the exhaust pipe as it warms up and then that becomes steam. Watch to see if it goes away after five or ten minutes worth of driving.
Question Answered: turn signal bulbs
January 02, 2012, 04:38 PM
If you are referring to the front ones, you can also reach up from underneath the van and twist the bulb out.
Question Answered: Brake pad metal sensor
August 18, 2010, 04:47 PM
It will go on the inboard shoe. All I have ever seen are made to the pad so once you put the pad with the senson on the inboard side the sensor will be where it is. It really doesn't matter.
