New to forums - Great Site BTW!!!

Postby jolkkonen [OP] » May 26th 2009, 4:03pm

Hello all, this is great forums and has very knowledgable posts.

I stumbled across this site while trying to find info on how to fix my wife's van intake gasket leak. I was like, "I wish there was a forums dedicated to the astro/safari"...and, ding, here it is.

Just want to say in advance, thanks for all the information and input on topics here. It sure has helped me.

Wife's van is a 99 Safari with about 140k.
