GMC Safari & Astro Van Review
This is a review of the GMC Safari or Chevrolet Astro Van. The Safari and
Astro vans are very similar General Motors vehicles, powered by the 4.3
liter V6 engine. These vans are big enough to hold a 4 x 8 sheet of
plywood, haul 8 passengers, or pull a 5,000 pound trailer. If you want to
buy a used GMC Safari Van or Chevrolet Astro Van, this video will answer
your questions. They are good vans. I love mine.

How To Replace The Cap and Rotor On An Astro Van Or GMC Safari
Here is how to replace the cap and rotor on a Chevrolet Astro Van or GMC
Safari with a 4.3 liter Vortec V6 engine. This is an important part of a
tune up. If your van is running poorly, try replacing the cap and rotor.
They are supposed to be replaced every 30,000 miles, and changing the cap
and rotor without doing anything else can make a big difference. If the
contacts inside the cap and rotor are worn or corroded, it makes poor spark
or can even cause the spark plugs to misfire. You can replace the cap and
rotor for under $30, so it's a cheap fix.

GM recommends this service done at every 15000 miles. I only repack them
when I start to feel play in the wheel.
How To Replace Power Steering Pump On GMC Safari Or Astro Van
Here is how to change the power steering pump on a GMC Safari or Chevrolet
Astro Van. Changing the power steering pump on your van is easy, but it is
also messy. To replace the power steering pump in your GMC Safari or Astro
Van, buy a replacement pump and borrow or rent a pulley puller from the
auto parts store. From there, disconnect the hoses and let the power
steering fluid drain, then remove the pulley from the front of the power
steering pump so you can get to the bolts, remove the pump from the van,
and replace any rubber hoses that need replacement. The fluid return hoses
are rubber, and the high-pressure hose is metal. Reattach the power
steering hoses. Then use the pulley puller to put the pulley back on the
power steering pump and reattach the drive belt. That's how to change the
power steering pump on a GMC Safari or Astro Van with a 4.3 liter V6

Leaf Spring Upgrade
The Astro Van has taken some serious abuse this year, hauling around a ton
of copper, and towing the big trailer full of more copper and tools. Until
today I have put air bag suspension on everything I drive. I got a few air
leaks in a couple of air bags, and decided to go with a more permanent
trailer hauling solution for the Chevy Astro Van. I stopped in at the
local Alberta Spring and Trailer, got myself a set of steal leaf springs,
to replace the cracking fiberglass springs, and 4 extra 1/4" thick steel
leafs. I also picked up some coil over shock helper springs. The over all
result is very heavy rear suspension which can haul anything now. The next
area to address would be the tires. Now I can get so much weight in the
van the tires look low because they can't hold enough psi.
