Re: Where's my Fuel Pump fuse?????

The fuel pump relay should be served by the ECM-B1 fuse, located between the A/C Enable Relay and the Horn Fuse.

Re: Question about transmission fluid filter (1995)

There isn't really a spec on the filter tightness but installation by hand is normal. It should be seated at the same depth as the the old filter.

Re: 2002 Trans at 235k

The reman 4l60e price on the Jasper website is 1,691.00. While I understand paying professional rates for professional service, I'd make sure that you weren't being quoted for an AWD setup, which is a bit more involved. Not sure about the posted labor times, but actual R&R time on a RWD is likel...

Re: ABS CONTROL MODULE

I cut a hole in my driver's side floor to access the ABS unit... ... Not seen THAT one before. Wow. :shock: Just... Wow. Glad I was able to pioneer that one for ya. I was much happier fabricating the floor back together for a few hours than I would have been laying underneath the rusty van with a d...

Re: ABS CONTROL MODULE

I cut a hole in my driver's side floor to access the ABS unit. I did read several posts in which very patient (maybe lucky) folks used a small grinder to get the heads off. But as stated above, you still have the screw threads to deal with. I don't regret going through the floor but it's definitely ...

Re: Cruise Control Question

They would've had your cruise control connector removed from the throttle assembly in order to do the intake gasket. I'd fix the vacuum lines (unrelated to CC, but likely your HVAC vent output issue) and have a look at the CC connector. There's a small "c" clip that secures the connector t...

Re: 1999 2wd Astro, newly acquired and need to diagnose

Wow! That's actually pretty exciting in some ways (perhaps). Not sure what it might say about past maintenance but if I had a vehicle that was hauling $1000s in hidden, illicit product I'd probably try to minimize the chance of breaking down.

Re: Rear brake lines.

I whole heartedly second this opinion. Nickel/Copper lines are significantly easier to work with in all respects. Well worth the few extra dollars

Re: ABS problems

I did not trust the blind dremel method on mine and ended up removing the driver's seat and going through the floor. After making an attempt at reflowing the solder with a terrible HF solder gun and still having a hard C0265 code (as I recall), I ended up buying an entire ABS control unit from a loc...

Re: u382A paint code?

To the best of my knowledge, the "U" stands for "upper", indicating a two-tone exterior paint. 382 should be Pewter metallic.

Do you have a photo of your your SPID (RPO) label?

Congrats on what sounds to be a great purchase.

Re: Problem Reseating Radio

It sounds like the shifter may not fully be in Park. In order to remove the bezel for the HVAC, Radio, Instrument Panel etc, you possibly had to move the shift lever to make it happen (I usually pull the lever down to first when I'm removing that bezel). Try playing with the shifter and the key.

Re: 1988 Chevy Astro Van $100

That'd be pretty darn rusty even in the rust belt. Not sure about Yuma AZ but up here in Michigan, scrap yards are paying $235/net ton for cars. Hate to say it about an Astro, but I'd pull the few salvageable M/L specific parts and let the rest go.

Appears to be a factory color option. Nothing concrete but managed to find a few things... If you can get your hands on an 89' brochure or just clearer image the paint options are mentioned - https://www.hemmings.com/blog/wp-content/uploads//2012/02/1987-Chevrolet-Astro-Van-04-05.jpg Carmel Brown Me...

Hello from SE Michigan - 2002 RWD LT

Hi everyone. Been lurking on this forum for some time. Grateful for the wealth of information that is to be found here.
