I also like the way the seats detach but hate the rattle. I am thinking of coating the bottom the the seat brackets that fit in the hole with some of that tool coating.
I have a 2007 chevy express witht the 6.0 and carefully monitor the milage so far (28,000 Miles) I am getting 14-14.5 MPG on the open road and 12-13 in the city. I would be interested what others are getting and if the Milage goes up as the engine braks in.

#592 of 655 Engine Problem with 2001 Express
Aug 04, 2008 (8:36 pm)
I have a 2001 Express with a 5.0 engine. It started missing and has a slight "clicking" noise. Took it to a shop, they said it needed two injectors. Purchased two, then they said it needed all eight. Purchased them. After $ 855.00 it does the same thing and the mechanics now say that a cyclinder is "washed out". I think I got ripped. Anyway, is it possible that the ecu can be causing the problem? Had a complete tune up to no avail. It doesn't knock, doesn't burn oil, does not smoke, but just appears to miss on one or two of the cyclinders. The miss is constant and consistant. Any suggestions?

Have you had the vehicle hooked up to a diagnostic machine at a shop to see if any engine trouble codes appear? you can also buy the diagnostic units cheaply and check for yourself to see any engine trouble codes.

#596 of 655 Express van won't start = FIXED!
Oct 16, 2008 (7:55 am)
my company van would not start. few minutes later van started. took to nearest garage and noticed SECURITY light was on dash. garage owner said key and/or key ignition cylinder is worn so computer thinks i'm trying to steal van so computer cuts off fuel injectors. went to dealership but their computers were down so i could not get new key. took a chance with backup key. later that evening van would not start AT ALL and i was stranded. got tow back to house. later installed NEW ignition key cylinder AND NEW key cut from van VIN code from dealership. turned key to run position and let sit for at least 20 minutes so computer could re-calibrate to new key/cylinder. van starts up and runs fine. hope that helps!

I have a 97 chevy 3500 van. I've had it about 2 years, since shortly after I bought it it has slipped going into 3rd gear. Now it smells like the transmission fluid is burning and it sometimes will not shift out of 1st. Could someone plz give me an idea what this could be? Thank you.

swinnyo - do you have more information on this wiring issue and is it the same for a 2002 Savana van. I have similar issues and want to check this wiring while I am checking everything else.

I'm interested in towing my 4000 pound boat with a 2008 or 2009 Chevy express. I just wondering if anyone tows with this van and how do you like the van for towing? Does the 5.3 liter engine develop enough torque to pull 4000 lbs?
