Where is the pump relay and how can you check it to make sure the fuel pump works on a '97 Chevy van 5.7 engine?

You can call the dealer and ask if they know where it is as far as checking it you should get someone to hold the relay and turn on the key but dont start it then turn it off do this several times and if the person holding it hears clicking or feels it switching on it should be good. On my '92 van it is on the firewall, just under the hood, near the center. I have not had a relay failure but I have had three fuel pump failures on my van. When you first turn the ignition on, before starting the engine, the relay will "click" on for a few seconds, then click off. If you pop the hood and have someone standing near it they will hear it click on and off. More importantly, if someone can be near the fuel tank when you do this they should hear the fuel pump briefly run for the same amount of time (it should sound like a faint humming sound). To really check it you would need to use a test light to see if 12V is getting to the fuel pump / relay in and out terminals. In general, the fuel pump will last longer if you keep a fair amount of fuel in the tank. Don't run the tank dry (or even nearly dry). I like to fuel up when the fuel guage drops to 1/4 tank. The fuel actually runs through the pump motor and cools it. If the tank level is too low and the gas sloshes to one side or another the pump will run dry. You probably won't notice it, but the pump can overheat and wear out or fail prematurely. Good Luck Richard Rea

Thermostats
Chevy 350

What is normal operating temp for a 305 with a 195 degree thermostat?

210 is norm for most chevys, witch is good in the winter, if you live in hot weather go ahead and install the 180 degree thermostat

any vehicle with a 195 degree thermostat should run at 195 degrees. Assuming all components are working properly, there is sufficient coolant capacity, and the vehicle is not being used outside of it's design parameters.

_________________________________________________________________

195 may be the thermostat temperature, but in the case of my Z28 Camaro, the cooling fans are set to come on at a higher temp 230 (probably for sake of emissions), and then settle down to 210. In this respect, the fan sensors dictates your operating temp.

I would suggest you contact a GM Dealer about this. Almost all Chevy engines use a 180 degree or a 160-165 degree thermostat. I`m not going to say this is concrete but

I do not suggest getting the engine over 200 degrees. About all this new stuff has aluminum heads and heat is an enemy to them. Call the dealer !!!!!! GOOD LUCK

How do you remove a carrier bearing from a 1988 Suburban?

You have to pull the wheels off, then the brake drums from the rear axle. The axles have to come out to get the rear differential out...if you are trying to replace the ring gear and pinion gear. This is a job that requires a pro. The reinstalling of the new ring and pinion gear must be set exactly right...or it will HOWL..Grind itself up...and fail. Often when this Type job has to be done..it is easier for you to buy a good rear end that comes Drum To Drum from a salvage yard much cheaper...and its easy to unbolt the old rear end...and bolt the other back in...and go on down the road. For me, it has been cheaper everytime. Just be sure to change the rear gear oil yourself...or have the lube shop switch it out ( its Cheap). Be sure you fit the axle breather tube back to the nipple on the rearend. It runs from the axle up above to the frame and the end loops back down in a upside down J . It keeps the water out of the rearend, when you back down the ramp to launch your boat. Water in the rearend is the number one cause of rearend failures. Driving in high water will also do the same.

How can you check a starter on a '93 Chevy Lumina?

If you can't get it to start with a good battery and you can't see any bad wires, etc. - you need to remove it and take it to a parts store to be checked. (it probably makes sense to just replace it while it's off.)

at $200.00 for the starter i would make real sure you need one

also check all the starter relays, and your ign switch.

ANSWER: Just buy a new starter!

Where is the transmission speed control sensor and what does it look like on a 1992 Chevy Van?

I suppose that it would depend on the transmission used. I have a 1992 G30 (slowly falling apart with 251,000 miles on it) with the 4L-80 E Transmission (heavy duty 4 speed electronically controlled auto). There are two speed sensors, both on the left (driver's)side of the transmission. Both have a two-wire connector. The input speed sensor is located towards the front of the tranny, and the vehicle speed sensor is located towards the back. The input speed sensor measures the transmission's input speed (i.e. the rate that the engine is turning the input to the transmission) while the vehicle speed sensor is used for measuring the vehicles speed (i.e. the rate at which the rear wheels are turning). Its signal is also used for the speedometer - there is no speedometer cable going to the speedometer. Mine is currently busted - transmission won't upshift and speedometer reads 0. Replaced the sensor to no avail. Someone suggested that I check the ignition switch, as part of it might be broken. In general we have had a lot of problems with the electronics on this van, including wiring and connectors failing. Good luck with yours. Richard Rea

How do you replace the water pump on a 1997 Chevy van?

It is pretty easy but you can mess it up so get a manual on your truck from the parts store which will help on the next repair.

Added info: My manual was incorrect on how to get the fan off the water pump. I'm not sure if the 97 is the same as a 1999 and 2000, but I think it is. First thing is to take off the air filter "box"and radiator overflow tank. Then the plastic fan shroud. Then you should be able to get to everything. Your local auto parts store should have a special tool to hold the fan pully while you loosen the big nut that goes on the front of the water pump (look at the new water pump to determine if the threads are right or left hand threads so you know which way to turn the nut to loosen). Once you get the fan and clutch off the water pump, then it's pretty straight forward. One thing is you must have new gaskets when putting on the new water pump. These gaskets will want to fall off when you try to put the pump on (a real pain in the butt). Buy some of the gasket maker stuff that is made for waterpumps/theromostat housings and use on the gaskets to hold in place.

How do you change back brakes on a 1985 Chevy van?

It depends if it is the front or rear brakes. Most likely if it is the front brakes you need to take off the front wheels then unbolt the two bolts on the back of the calper. Then you need to remove the caliper and take the brake pads out. After you do that you need to get a c clmp and push the caliper piston back into the calpier making sure that you take off the cap to your brake booster so it will release any fluid back into your resevor. After you have pushed the piston back in to where it is flush with the edge of the caliper, put the new pads back where the old one came out and put the caliper back on the rotor. After that bolt it back up and replace the wheels and reservor cap. Then the last step is to pump your break pedal. That should do it for you. If you have any questions you can e-mai me at any time and i will try to answer any questions you have. Im but i cant explain how to change your drums that are on the back in writing, i would have to talk to you on the phone or something. Ok later. I hope i helped you.

Sincerely willie

Its me again i didnt read the question correctly. Its was the back brakes that you needed help on. Well you would have to e-mail me that way we can get in touch. Sincerely willie

How do you replace the rear turn signal bulb located on a 2003 Chevy Express Van?

If there are no screws holding in the lens, then you will have to remove the inside panel behind the lights- just enough to reach your hand in . Once you have that off,you ought to be able to reach in and grab the socket to remove the bulb.

Its funny cause I just had to replace most of lights a few moments ago. Here's what the owner's manual says:

1. Remove the two inboard nuts on the assembly.

2. Pull side assembly rearward to clear studs.

3. Rotate side assembly on the outboard side releasing the upper clip.

4. Slide assembly slightly upward to release lower clip.

5. Reinstall the clips to the side assembly.

6. Remove the three nuts on the taillamp.

7. Remove the tailamp from the vehicle.

8. To Remove, squeeze the tab on the side of the sockets while turning them counterclockwise.

9. Turn the bulb counterclockwise to remove it. Install the new bulb.

10. Reverse the above steps to reinstall the lamp.

Does a 1993 Chevy van have a 4l60E transmission?

If it has Regular Production option(RPO) code M30 listed on the SPID(in the glovebox) Yes, your vehicle has a 4L60-E Transmission, if it has a MD8 code, then your vehicle has a 700R4, or the non electronic version of the 4L60. This is all assuming the factory transmission is still installed. All S-10's, Corvettes, Camaros, and Full Size Pick Ups had 4L60e transmissions as standard equipment so I would have to assume yes.

How do you replace front shocks 1993 Chevrolet Astro van?

I went to AutoZone.com. They have detailed instruction. I have a 98 Astro van. They didn't have the repair proceedure for 98. I checked an earlier year, 93 I think, and found the same setup. The problem I'm having is getting the old nut loose that holds the shock rod to the upper control arm. The only way to keep the rod from turning, is with a tiny wrench on the flat spot on the top of the rod. Not nearly enough leverage to loosen a nut that hasn't been off in a long time. I'm beginning to consider torch. Any ideas?

Heater Cores and Blower Fans

How do you remove the heater core in a 1978 Chevy van?

On early (1978)Chevy Vans you access the heater core thru the small hood in front of the Van. On the left side locate the two heater core hose's and observe the cover that holds the blower motor and core. Remove the bolts that secure the cover to the firewall and pry the cover loose. You may have to disconnect the heater blower motor electric plug. Some covers were sealed shut with some type of adhesive and the cover may require a considerable amount of prying to free. Installation is reverse of the remove and new hoses and clamps are always a good idea.As far as heater core R-N-R'S not a very difficult job.

How do you identify ECM failures in a Chevy van?

You can try going to your local auto parts supply store and borrowing their diagnostic OBD code scanner. If there is a problem it will probably not be able to retrieve any codes. If you get codes then you will have a couple of places to start troubleshooting from. After my Chevy van stopped running completely, I pulled the ECM and inspected the greenboards for damage. Sure enough, mine had a burned out spot. I replaced the whole ECM for less than $300. It had to be reprogramed to my vehicle's specific VIN number and I had to retain the knock sensor and put it back on the ECM before I installed the new one. When you buy new parts ask questions. Sometimes the sexual intellectuals at the parts counter won't tell you important information unless you ask.

Spark Plugs and Wires

How do you get to the sparkplugs on a 1999 Safari Van?

To get to the spark plugs of the Safari Van, the best way to do it is to take off the engine housing in the passenger compartment. There are latches on the sides of the housing, plus two bolts next to the latches, plus there are two nuts down on the floor- you have to really put your head down there to see them. Then there are a couple of braces there as well. Just stack everything outside as you go, so you can put it back together in the same order when you are done. Having a universal joint for your socket will also make getting the plugs out easier. With the cover off you will be able to see all four rear plugs. The front two you can feel, but not see. You can either reach those from inside the van, or from underneath. The spark plugs may also be reached by jacking up the front of the van and removing the front wheels. Then, remove the rubber flaps in the wheel wells. You will probably need new fasteners when you put them back on. They are available at popular auto parts stores like Autozone or Checker.

Car Starting Problems

Why would cause a van to turn over but not start after changing the gas filter?

There is a correct flow direction for a fuel filter. if installed backwards the car may not start because not enough fuel can flow and the is not enough fuel pressure. Make sure the flow direction is positioned witht he arrow directed towards the outlet line to the engine fuel rail/carb. IS fuel the problem? IT takes not only fuel, but spark and combustion to start a motor. is the fuel filter on right?

How do you remove the rear seat headrests on a 2005 Chevrolet Equinox?

It's not in the owner's manual. I recently purchased a used 2005 Equinox myself and needed to remove the rear seat headrests to allow my child booster seats to position correctly. After an extensive internet search I found the anwer at: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20070513143128AALmM37 I used a small finishing nail for this procedure and was able to successfully remove my Equinox's rear headrests. Answer: Raise the head restraint to the full-up position (beyond the highest fixed position). Insert a small nail into the guide hole (located on the opposite side from the adjusting button).
Pull up to remove the head restraint. Good Luck 01/17/2008
