Answer On a 1968 Chevy (Impala, Caprice, sedan or wagon). first look at the dash, where the key goes. There is a ring with (3) small indentions. This ring has a "special tool" to remove, but if you really aren't making a show car you can use a small hammer & screwdriver. Gently place the...

I had the same problem on my 2001 corvette coupe. It was a pinched wire that was causing an elctrical problem. It was all labor to have it fixed. I think it cost me about $300 FM: canonjohnr - lay under front of car, locate front sway bar. Large elec conduit parallels sway bar. two lines go to fans...
Hi, It sounds like you have a fuel level sensor that is starting to go bad. This sensor is located in the fuel tank, and depending on the age of the van, will probably have to be replaced.

Lightly pry up the trim around the edges of the door first (it will still be held in place by the screws and armrest/handle). There are plastic rivets that potentially can be saved depending on how well this is done; otherwise, you can replace them later, if necessary, with "HELP!" equivalents found...
Yes it does. Anything after 1987 uses fuel injectors.
The wheel will begin to wobble and can eventually fall off if you don't get it fixed.
Answer . If it is oil, you have a very serious problem. The check engine light alone means you have a problem that is effecting the emissions controls and the computer is warning you of this. Take it in for repair immediately.. Answer . \nThere is a line for the transmission fluid that hooks...
I too own a 1987 2.0Si. Both inside door locks were broken when I got the car for $400 US. I have since replaced the lock flappers from the wrecking yard. There is no other way to repair this as the flappers are made cheaply in a flimsy plastic. You do have to disassemble the door panels for access....

Get a tire with a speed rating of S or T.
If your oil light came on, your engine is probably toast by now- a severe drop in oil pressure is required to turn that light on, and once that light comes on that means your engine was already running dry- chewing up the bearings and parts.\n. \nEither that or you may have a faulty sensor and/or...

Chevy and gmc keys are replaceable thru a dealer by providing the VIN off your vehicle Along with this, I can add. In Canadian currency, it's about $32 for a key and about $45 to program it.
Usually, only two reasons for this. If it smells like antifreeze then it is the heater core that has gone bad. If it is just water then the ac vent drain is probably clogged with debree. It is usually a rubber type hose that is located in the engine compartment that drains the ac condensation. Can...

Hi, The Body Control Module (BCM) is located on the passenger side of the van, under the right side of the dash. To get to it easily, you will need to remove the lower dash panel and the glove box. I have included a link that shows pictures of its location and how to get to it. Good Luck...
Hi, The connector (fitting) is between the engine and the radiator. It should have a blue plastic cap on it. I have included a link that shows its location.

Hi, Almost ALL GM vehicles, including their vans, use the same fuse for the OBD-2 connector that supplies power to the cigar lighter. So check that fuse and make sure it is working.
Have you checked the cooling fan relay? ? This is the child's wooden block size relay installed in the fuse/relay box in under the hood. If it is bad the fan will not come on even if all the other sensors and components of the system are functioning. Also, This cooling fan relay draws a lot of...
Hi, You have to remove the entire headlight assembly to get to the bulb, which is located in the back of the assembly. There are three wing nuts that hold the assembly in, and those will have to be removed. Then remove the side signal assembly first, then the headlight assembly. I have...
Hi, Probably 95% of the time, or more, the problem with a fuel gauge not reading correctly is the fuel level sensor. This sensor is located in the fuel tank and that tank will have to be drained and dropped to get to the sensor. Sorry about that. Good Luck
Check your owner's manual. There should be a detailed list of what fuses control what and their required amps.
Answer . \nSounds to me like you have a broken spring in the valve body You need to have a line pressure test to be sure but that is a common problem in the older cars
I wouldn't recommend it. You have sensors that hook up to your cats which will trip your check engine lights and throw off your vehicles computer. It's not a good idea on newer model vehicles because of the computers, emissions, and you need that back pressure to ensure that your exhaust is...
The locks are probably on a different circut than the sliding door. You might check the fuse box under the dash .I think it is in the number 2 spot to see if the fuse is bad. Check your owners manual. If that doesnt work the motor for the power door could be bad. Good luck!

I'm assuming your asking about the coolant purge valve, there is a pipe that runs right above the exhaust manifold, take a 6mm socket and turn c/clockwise half a turn while you are filling the coolant. Ahen coolant comes out, system is purged. Idle for 20 mins and observe temp and coolant level...

The best way is to do a compression and/or leak down test. If it's overheating in a fairly short amount of time it's probably a bad gasket or cracked head. Using antifreeze without any visible leaks is a good indication.

Turn on the key but don't start the van. Push the accelerator to the floor and release 3 times. It will now reset.

Certainly sounds like a bad connection somewhere. Most likely it is a bad ground but which one and where I couldn't tell you.
This happened to my Chevy Venture too. When I took the arm off, I discovered that the arm and the part that rotates the arm connect by a pattern of grooves, like a gear. The grooves on the inside of the wiper arm were worn down so they were not catching, causing the arm to move just a little then...

Hi, There is no automatic switch really, but the cooling fans are controlled through two relays, which are in turn controlled by the engine computer, or PCM (Powertrain Control Module). I have included a link to a site that goes into detail about how the system works. You might want to take a...
Hi, If you are referring to the sensor that helps turn on and off the fans for this van, it is the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor, which is located just in front of the thermostat housing. That housing is located on the left side of the vehicle (driver side), just in from of the throttle body....
Hi, There are two relays that are controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) that are responsible for controlling the cooling fans. The PCM will switch the relays on and off depending on certain conditions, such as engine temperature and whether or not the air conditioning compressor is...

fuse panel on right hand side of vehicle, under hood, number 11
buy a repair manual at any parts store and it explains it step by step
Have the vehicle scanned for codes. I believe Auto Zone and other parts stores will do this for free. The Check Engine light comes on to tell you an error code is stored in the computer. I'm guessing you have a bad oxygen sensor, but DO NOT throw parts dollars at a vehicle randomly.
facing engine #1 left to Right ie #1 on the passenger side #4 on the drivers side.
The top radiator hose is above the thermostat. If the top radiator hose is hot, the thermostat is opening. The thermostat is not the problem. Perhaps the radiator is clogged up or the water pump is bad. Look elsewhere.
Hi, If you are referring to the FRONT parking lamp, it is really pretty easy. All you have to do is remove a few wing nuts that hold the signal assembly in place and then pull the assembly out. Once it is out, the bulb just unscrews and you can replace it. I have attached a link that shows how...
My opinion is you would either have antifreeze in your oil, or oil in your antifreeze or one of the 2 fluids is leaking from the head. I would check to see if its a blown head gasket first, in this case you would get a lot of white smoke pouring out your tail pipe. the proper way to find out if it...
The wheel bearings are not really replaceable by themselves. This is because they are integrated into the hub assembly. So the answer is that you will have to replace the entire hub assembly to replace the bearings.

Hi, The fuel filter is an "in-line" type, and is mounted along the left side of the vehicle, inside the frame rail. You will need a quick connect tools to replace it. Good Luck, Greg
Hi, Most of the time, the problem with the fuel gauge not working can be traced back to the fuel level sensor, which is in the gas tank. What happens is the little metal "fingers" on the sensor break - over time - and the gauge starts to either stick in one position or jump around all over the...
