Engine Performance problem
1999 Chevy Astro 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
Most of the time the engine runs good. Every now and then the security code keeps flashing and the engine will start but immediately quit. After waiting for awhile with the switch on the security light will go out and the eng will start normal. That is the first part of the problem.
Now the engine will refuse to start and the security light is not on. I was told to pound on the bottom of the fuel tank to unstick the fuel pump, which I did, and the engine started. The second time, the pounding did no good but after sitting all night the engine started normal the next day.
This is the second astro van that I had with starting problems. The first was a 1996 which had numerous problems starting. Is this an inherent problem with Astro's? What can be done to eliminate the starting problem.
Thanks, Al Banks
have the same problem?
