#204 of 629 Loud grinding noise When I brake! Trouble getting into Reverse!
Jul 12, 2005 (7:22 pm)
Ok, I'll admit it, I'm definitely no mechanic. I need help!!!! I own a 1993 Chevy Astro, and it has started meking a loud grinding noise. It has progressively gotten worse, and you really hear/feel it when you apply the brake. Which, by the way, has become more difficult. It is like real stiff. I also have trouble shifting the van into reverse from park, which all of this no doubt goes back to the brake. I did notice some ligiud had leaked onto the driveway where the van had been sitting. My guess was brake fluid, but it seems I still have plenty. Any ideas? Thanks!

#206 of 629 Air conditioning and Anti freeze problem
Jul 16, 2005 (12:56 pm)
I have 97 chevy Venture Long body(LS). I noticed following problem over time:
1: Door switches of both sides(Driver,s and Passenger side) for windows and door locks quits frequently. I paid heavy cost of $350 to replace them.
2. Now A/C quits on me suddenly. It was working alright and stopped working suddenly. I showed to mechanic who is asking for More than $1000 for replacement of compressor, filter/dryer and charging the system.
3. I have noticed some Oil deposits in Antifreeze overflow bottle. Also antifreeze need refilling frequently as I see dripping of some kind of liquid from engine to floor under the engine. I checked with Couple of Mechanics who advised me to report to GM or one of their dealers for fixing up of this manufacturing defect free of charge. Is it correct view of mechanics.
I need to know the procedure for replacement of Compressor and dryer as per workshop service manual.
I will appreciate for the help.
Thanks and best regards
#207 of 629 Wiper Failure - Random
Jul 17, 2005 (6:33 am)
I have a 98 Chevy Astro. My wife was in a rain storm last week and the wipers stopped while the switch was on. This has been happening more often over the last few months. I have the van in for repair. They want $400+ to replace the wiper motor unit. Before I let them proceed, does anyone have any experience or advice regarding the malfunction? Is there a smaller component that should be looked at?Is it easy enough to replace by oneself? Garry

I have a 1998 Chevy Astro Van... and I hear a humming in the rear end.. I think it might be the differential... Can anyone tell me about that, or what it would cost to get it fixed? Thanks

I had the same problem. There was a recall on the circuit board that the wires for the wiper attach to. I took it to the dealer when I got the recall notice. It was a quick replacement. I heard it was bad solder joints on the circuit board. I would question the dealer about the recall. I know the recall was also on the Chevy trucks. Hope this helps.

GM recalled 1.5 million trucks from 95-98 with faulting wiper motor. GM recall covered cost of replacement. Unfortually I had all ready replaced it myself to 67.00. GM did reimbust me for the cost not my labor.
