#427 of 655 Hello from a new Chevy Express Owner
Jul 28, 2005 (11:20 am)
Just bought our 2005 express 3500 extended passenger van and we are excited about it. I have a couple of questions though and would appreciate any help:
1) Is it pre-wired to hook up a brake controller?
2) Any recommendations on adding an extra transmission cooler?
3) How is it different than earlier years (body, engine, etc) - useful in looking for aftermarket accessories?
4) Any problems if I add a bug shield?
5) Anyone ever put fender flares on one and where did you find them?

I was at the dealer last week and apparently they're having trouble fitting a transmission in that will handle the torque of the Isuzu.

Have had many problems with our 2003 6.0L 2500 12 passenger....the really expensive ones started happening after 36K miles
#432 of 655 99 Chevy Express Van vibration & Noise at 25+ mph
Aug 09, 2005 (10:42 am)
I have a 99 Chev Express Van and noticed that at about 25+ mph I hear a noise and experience vibrations very similar to having mud/snow tires on the vehicle. The problem is I have very quiet radial tires. This is a new noise on the van. I do not know if it is related to the transmission or something to do with the front or rear end. It definitely has nothing to do with the engine. If you coast (put it in neutral and turn off the engine), the noise and vibration is just as apparent. If you take a decent right turn curve at about 40+ mph the noise and vibration disappears. The vibration or noise does not increase or decrease under load. I do have 150,000 miles on this vehicle so everything could be suspect. Does anyone have any clues?

Today we bought an Express Cargo 2500 with tilt/cruise, window glass and cloth seats. Paid $20,500 with the $1,000 rebate, pretty tought to beat. We have an older Ford Econoline and the ride and handling on this one is much better. I'm crious about what we'll get for MPG with the 4.8l V8 and 3.73 axle versus the Ford 5.8 and 3.73 rear axle.
#434 of 655 MP3 player link

We got the standard AM/FM/Single CD radio
1. Any good way to connect MP3 players?
2. The radio supports 4 speakers, is the wiring in place for the rear speakers?
#435 of 655 2001 Express leaking radiator fluid
Aug 16, 2005 (6:18 pm)
my 2001 Express has been nothing but trouble since we got it, now the silly thing has 91K miles on it, easy miles I would ask, and the stupid thing is leaking radiator fluid from seems to be the intake manifold on the driver's side, anyone know if this was covered by a recall that I missed, or by any other warranty?
Mechanic said it will take about $1,000 to fix it, then the other side will do it's thing sometime soon, claims that this is a manufactered defect.
