Re: Wanted: Rust Free Friends

This is absolutely repairable, But only if I can get the parts. OMG. That is a LOT of rot, TON of work, but definitely can be fixed. I would start looking for a rust free example on Copart and just resign to getting an entire van for $200-400 and have it shipped. I'm all over the place when I trave...

Re: Crank, no start.

Need fuel in the correct amount and spark at the right time.

I would try starting fluid and go from there. If it starts and runs on starting fluid then you know you have a fuel related problem.

Re: What have you done to/with your van today?

Mine was also about 2" too short (after my transfer-case upgrade) which worked fine for a while, until the day I slammed my brakes and things flexed enough for the drive-shaft to come out! Damage was minor.. I was lucky. I did have a shaft built 2" longer. :D This is something that I have...

Re: What van should I buy?

Is there specific models and years of the AWDs that i should be looking for? Or avoiding? I have realized there is a lot of different specifications regarding the gears, suspension components, and VIN numbers. Also, if i buy an AWD astro with stock everything, and then throw a 3-5 inch lift on it w...

Re: E-Fan Issues

Your updated diagram is a lot better! I would agree with the above that you are probably not getting up to temperature and definitely would want to fix/install a temperature gauge so you know what is going on with your engine.

Have you upgraded your radiator?

Re: E-Fan Issues

Yes, you could test it that way, not sure what the current rating is on the thermal switch.

However, it will never work properly until that relay is wired properly. Or completely take the relay out of there as it's not really needed.

Re: Hitch sag and tongue weight question

Just have to remember that the hitch rating isn't the only rating to be concerned with. Could bolt a 10,000lb rated hitch to an Astro, doesn't mean that you can safely handle 10,000lbs.

Re: E-Fan Issues

You have your relay wired wrong. The 'switched ignition' should be wired through the coil.

The 'switched ignition' goes to 86, 30 and 85 go to ground, and 87 goes to your thermal switch.

Re: Is it worth continuing?

Awesome!

Not sure about mixing the aftermarket parts together, might be more pain than it's worth. If you are going to use a Walker muffler I would stick with the Walker tailpipe.

Re: Burning through DIZZY caps

A distributor will last 6 months to a year, the vehicle will begin to skip a little, then run very rough, then not at all. I have changed distributors, tried the goofy “one tooth off” stuff, bought every sort of cap made (the brass ones last a little longer). I have investigated the thrust washer i...

Re: 2005 GMC Safari 2WD

Congrats on the new van! I got a really cool radio. Touch screen, wifi, bluetooth, back camera, lots of bells and whistles. I'm going to have to move the A/C controls, rear A/C control, and rear wiper switch, so it will fit like factory. Dieing to get it all hooked up. Have you seen the Metra double...

Re: passlock

Definitely not passlock, that is aftermarket. If it disables the starter, you can turn the ignition on and manually(and carefully) jump the starter. Personally I would probably remove the aftermarket system, but that's just me.

Re: Astro 95 4x4 by Luma

This is something, what I do not want to do it. I had to pay quite a lot of money for the drawings of basic things. So I bought software to make it by my own. Anyone can do it. Sorry. And I do not want to sell it also. No worries man! I just figured it could save some redundant work/cost for others...
