Engine Performance problem
1999 Chevy Astro 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 101, 00 miles
am probably rephrasing the question my son in NYC has already asked, but here goes.
Acquired 99 astro van in Sept 07, which stalled at stop lights, and ran rough. Took it to shop #1. Replaced the distributor, cap, wires, plugs, egr valve. Ran fine for about a week, started running rough, they then replaced the distributor again, it ran fine for a while, then stalled in the driveway, left it till the ice thawed in March 08. After staring and stalling again had it towed to shop #2. Replaced the coil. And fuel filter. Ran fine for 2 weeks, then stalled again. I swapped the Air Mass flow meter from my 03 Buick Rendevous, and a few small vacuum hoses that were dry rotted (the heater/blower worked after that fix), shop #2 replaced the Idle Air Control Motor, & tweeked the distributor, and 2 weeks later after stalling, they replaced the fuel pump module. Ran fine for a while, and my son took it from IN to NYC with no problems. It now is stalling at stops, and restarts fine, but he as to be wary any time he decelerates or it will stall. A GM shop ran diagnostics, and wanted to replace AirMass Flow again, no change, It's now still stalling, and we are clueless. Please advise.
It does have a power brake assist installed by previous owner, and an after market remote start. Just in case any of this helps.
have the same problem?
