Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Chevy Astro 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 126000 miles
Last Labor day, almost 6 mos ago, my van died the same it as it had a few months before, in July, while it was raining (both times). At first it spit and sputtered like it was a vapor lock. Wouldn't start after that. Had it towed home. After it was off the towtruck, it started fine. I asked here and was told that it was probably a short between a wire by the ignition to the frame of the vehicle, since these wiires were just next to metal at the floor of the dogcage over the motor. Wrapped wires with more tape and hose so wires weren't near metal. Engine light never went on either. No problems since, until today. Oh, had put a new fuel pump and filter 2 years ago.
Yesterday, it wasn't raining, but it spit and sputtered and died the same way. Did that several times and had to be towed. Took about an hr to get towed. Got home, unloaded it from tow and it started fine. Engine light never went on either. HELP, lol
have the same problem?
