  1. Engines
    TLDR for that paragraph: battery is good, starter is good, starter wiring is good but when i try to start the dash lights dim and nothing else happens.

  3. 4WD,AWD And Transfer Case
    Hello, I have a 1996 AWD Astro and lately it has been having some issues getting up to speed.

    This is a rehash of a rehash of a rehash, and I'm really sorry, but I keep getting somewhat conflicting information. Most information I've gotten makes me think that mine has a deep pan.

As long as I've had the van, its had a nice consistent howl as long as the van is moving at 5mph or at 60 the howl is there. The previous owner told me he noticed the howl...
