CHEVY ASTRO AWD CLUNKS

1996 Chevrolet Other

Only has 274,000 miles but it clunks sometimes when shifting, starting to accelerate, and braking. Also vibrates, especially on rough pavement, 70 + MPH.
This is Van #4. Finally junked #1 after 550,000 miles with suspension problems, engine was fine. # 2, # 3 and this one are still going strong after 200,000+.

One more thing. Oil leaks in 1996 + astros are usually caused by the oil cooler installed between the filter mount and block. Fix costs $1.01.

Site is great. Thanks
