#452 of 655 Service Engine light 0r Check Light
Sep 24, 2005 (8:36 pm)
I recently purchased 2002 Chevy Express Extended 3500 cargo van.The engine size is 5.7L 350 engine. It has 92,000 miles on it. After putting about 1300 miles on the check light came on. I made several attempts to have the check engine light turned off, but still it still comes on. My mechanic said it has a small bubble in the tube system. In order to check the bubble' s location only the dealer has this system. This code scanner cost about 20,000 thousand dollars. Does anyone know about this sort of thing? Can anyone help? Does know where might this bubble be? Has this thing happen to anyone before?

I think I would find another mechanic. It sounds like your mechanic does not know much about your van. You can have the codes read at any Auto Zone parts store for free. Scanners start at under $400 if you want to buy one, but you need a trained mechanic to interpert the trouble codes and replace the correct parts.

I have a 2001 Express (8.1L) that will not start unless I pull out the ECM-B fuse and reseat it ... then sometimes it runs for a minute and stops. What is the PCM/VCM and is it a module or relay and where is it ? The fuel pump works and so does the engine oil pressure. My SES light is on now too. Thanks.
#457 of 655 Relocate seats in 12 passabger Express ...
Oct 15, 2005 (5:36 pm)
I have a 2005 Chevy Express 12 passenger van ... I would like to move the back 4-person seat forward about two inches to make a little extra room in the back to fit my son's wheelchair (without having to disassemble the wheelchair)
Or can you move the 4-person seat froward and remove one of the 3 person seats?

As far as moving or installing seats, I had to go to a conversion van company as apparently you have to be federally licensed to install seating. At least, no onw would touch it other than them.
#459 of 655 Towing Question
Oct 26, 2005 (6:01 pm)
Hello all! Forgive me for sounding stupid but I just can't figure out how much I can haul? I went to the chevy web site but all I found was figures for 2005 models with VORTEC engines. And I have no idea what a vortec engine is compaired to what is in mine. all I know is that I have a 2004 Express Work Van (HD) with a 4.8L V8 engine - 4 speed HD Auto Transmission. Regular RW drive. Can someone help me translate that to either the the VORTEC 4800 V8, VORTEC 6000 V8 or none of the above.
Also, last but not least ... on the GCWR is the weight of the van to be included in that?
Thanks for reading and I look forward to some thoughts and ideas.

Your engine is a VORTEC. 4.8 litre is the same as 4800, so you have the VORTEC 4800 V8. All of the GM motors in the trucks are VORTEC motors.
Yes, GCWR includes the weight of the vehicle and the passengers and cargo.
