Trans. and rearend out at 72,000 miles
By mmfan56 on
2001 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
This is the second Astro we have owned, the other being a 1993 we sold at 170,000 miles with little problems; motor mounts,elec. wondows, etc. This van has been babied since we had it, but I tow a small trailer occasionally, with heavy loads. The trans never seemed to shift quite right, but Chevy dealer always said okay. Recently, noticed the rear starting to sing, especially, at 40 mph, off gas. Oil leakage around pinion seal, 1 pint low. Took to Aamco, bad rear and trans being repaired as I write this.
Nice vehicle to travel in, especially for two people.
