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.
Tour of a 1996 Matorun fiberglass motorhome on a Chevy Astro van
Here are some improvements I've been making to this rare motorhome. I also
put in a new CD stereo in the dash, upgraded all the speakers, and am
replacing the A/C shroud. It has the Chevy 4.3 V--6 and gets from 12 to 15
mpg. Takes even steep hills with ease. Fits in any parking space too.
Sorry, it's not for sale.

How To Change Spark Plugs And Wires On An Astro Or Safari Van
Here is how to change the spark plugs and wires on an Astro Van or GMC
Safari. On any van, the spark plugs and wires can be hard to reach. In
this video, I show you how to get to and change the spark plug wires on an
Astro Van or GMC Safari by removing the engine cover, crawling under the
van, or by removing the wheel and inner wheel well to reach the spark plugs
and wires. I didn't remove the wheel or wheel well, but it does make the

This new to the scene Chevy AWD Astro Van was a fan favorite and didn't
disappoint the crowd. But unfortunately in the end, it wound up breaking a
hub I think...
How To Clean The EGR Valve On A GMC Safari Vortec V6 Engine
Here is how to clean the EGR (Exhaust
gas recirculation) valve on a GMC Safari Vortec V6 engine. If your engine
started running really rough all of a sudden, your EGR valve may be stuck
open. It's easy to remove and clean up. It is a good idea to install an
EGR valve gasket with a filter in it to prevent future carbon buildup.
Here is a link to a video I made showing the gasket:
V8 Astro van with ZZ3 at Holt Florida Dragstrip 1/8 mile
Vintage 1999 video of my 1987 Astro van with a ZZ3 Crate motor. This was
the first ever pass with this van. At the time of this video I still had
the stock 700R4 and converter along with 3.08 gears.
It had a lot more potential with some better gearing and a converter.
Still, it ran a lot better than anyone at the track was expecting, if
crowd reaction was any clue. Definitely a fun day at the dragstrip. 9.50
at 77 mph on this pass

I love this van it's just fab! Not only does she look awesome but inside is
out of this world! These custom vans were and are sold through Chevrolet
dealers in the states. She was only imported in 2007 so is rust free and
has all been treated. She is in excellent condition throughout and drives
like a dream. She comes loaded with toys from Sat Nav, DVD player, TV,
cruise control, swivel captains chairs and the rear seat that electrically
turns into a bed at the flick of a switch. Even the mood lighting is just
great. She is fitted with Chevrolet's 4.3 litre 165bhp Vortec engine that
returns over 20mpg. Just watch the video she is fantastic!
