Re: GEAR SHIFTER STUCK IN PARK.

huddy wrote:the key will not rotate to the off position. It comes out of the slot but the alarm goes off when the door opens like the key is there. Also, the ignition will start now with no key


Definitely points to a problem with a worn/damaged key and/or cylinder at a minimum.

Re: which injector cleaner fits Astro misfires over 30mph

$750 does sound like Hawaii prices, should probably learn to do this stuff yourself if possible. If you are a DOD ID card holder, check into the Auto Skills/Hobby shops. You can store and work on your vehicles there plus find plenty of people willing to give you some local guidance. Get the GM Techl...

Re: S10/15 Leaf Spring Experts - Do These Options Matter?

Sparkydog wrote:Does anyone know if any of these option codes made a difference to the actual leaf spring package?

Just like some of our vans came with a different number of leaf springs in the back, definitely could/would have made a difference.
Maybe look up the part numbers on the GM websites and compare.

Re: Will V6 4.3 Vortec from '00 Astro work in a '93

Neither dash displays 'codes', just a few gauges and some lights. Usually you can get all of that stuff to work, but it may not be easy. The shifting mechanism would be different as well. For resale value and to make it easy on the next guy, the simplest is to use exactly what belongs in there. But ...

Re: Alternator swap

Welcome to the site. The junk yard has an interchange manual and they are pretty darn accurate. Where the confusion comes in is that it's the same alternator on many vehicles between years. So yes, your 2005 Astro might use the same alternator as the 2007 Silverado/Express/Savana/ETC. Generally, jus...

Re: Polyurethane Bushings for Leaf Springs - INCREDIBLE!

Good find. I wonder if Daystar has something that will fit, something like: https://amzn.to/33U4aBH

Couldn't quickly find a cross reference, but something I want to look into. They have the same kit for many vehicles, so I'm sure we could find something to fit.

Re: Sliding Door

I did mine solo, not all that hard. I brought some rope with me to the junkyard, tied off the door before unbolting and then lowered it down using the rope itself...wasn't hard at all. I then did the same on mine at home, neither time did I encounter any issues. :thumbup: I wonder if that is where ...

Re: Hub Centric Rings and Why They're Important!

On axles that are designed to have hub-centric mounting(virtually all of them), it's hands down the best way to do it. IMO if you are going to spend money on aftermarket wheels, might as well do it right.
