1996 Chevrolet Astro Van Owner Comments

problem #6

Astro Van 4WD

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

When my vehicle was new I complained about the engine, northstar Chevrolet put in new fuel injectors at that time, but stated that all Astro ran the same as mine, no power and hesitation. Now I find out the fuel injectors leak, breaking down the oil, causing damage to the engine. Chevy will not admit to this problem. I have spoken to one dealer who keeps the V6 vortec in stock because he sells so many of them. Chevy wants heart Chevrolet to tear my engine apart before they will do anything and then it will problably only about 20% of a new engine. I take care of my cars and don't mistreat them. I work for a garage. Please help.
