I run a currier business with several vans.
Overall this is the worst van I have ever owned,
Multiple problems, fuel pump, Ignition switch, ECM, Distributor, etc.
Not depnedable at all.
GM is no help.
Have spent a bundle in repairs and towing.
Looking on the web seems these are standard problems for the 99-02 express van.
Very little help out there, but plenty of suggestions.
Gone to the junk yard with only 135000 miles on it.

We purchased our van for our antique furniture business. We have had nothing but great luck from this van. No mechanical failures or cosmetic issues to date. This has been one of the best vehicles we have ever owned. Everyday it is outside waiting for work and never fails to deliver. We have the small v8 and it has plenty of power but we do not tow anything. Long distance comfort in unmatched but sadly this van is around town only now. We purchased a 2007 Dodge Sprinter because of the roof height. It is a more useful vehicle for our needs but the Chevy never fails. I highly recommed unless you need the high roof.
For 2002, Express Cargo gets only minor upgrades like a more efficient starter, stronger steering gear housing and Low Emission Vehicle compliance for models equipped with either the 8100 V8 or 6.5-liter diesel and a GVWR of more than 8,600 lbs.
