FAQs—Chevrolet P20 Van
The transmission of my Chevrolet P20 Van is not responding. I tried to shut everything off and then restart the engine, and the transmission seems to start working only to go out again. What's going on with my van?
If you notice that your Chevrolet P20 Van refuses to go into gear, then it could be caused by one of several problems. First, check if your vehicle's transmission fluid level is correct. Low fluid level can cause your van to shift poorly or not respond at all, and it can also eventually lead to transmission damage and costly repairs. If you have just refilled the transmission fluid but you seem to be losing significant amounts on a regular basis, then there might be a leak in the transmission system that you need to find and seal. Finding the source is pretty easy as there are only a few places that can spring a leak. Check the filler tube base, the drain hole underneath the transmission, the area between the transmission and the engine, the selector shaft, the speed sensor mounting point, and the radiator. These are the only possible sources of transmission fluid leak.
I noticed that my Chevrolet P20 Van only has one fuel injector working; the other one does not. What can I do to fix this problem?
It is possible that the fuel injector that's not working is clogged. This is caused by buildup of microscopic foreign objects, which are usually in the form of rust. This foreign object is usually introduced from a source upstream, probably in the fuel supply line or the fuel rail. These rust particles can result from your van sitting idle without maintenance for a long time. Another possible cause is that the valve in the fuel injector is not opening because of fault windings or rust. The windings that are part of the injector might overheat, short out, or break, while the rust can cause the valve to stick. Try to run diagnostic tests to confirm what problems your van's fuel injectors have.
My Chevrolet P20 Van tends to pull to the right when I step on the brakes. What could be the problem?
When your Chevrolet P20 Van pulls to one side when braking, it indicates a possibly dangerous problem, which you need to troubleshoot and repair as soon as possible. Because your vehicle's braking system are a crucial safety feature, an issue like this could be a hazard to you and other people on the road. The first thing you need to check is your tires' air pressure. Uneven pressure in tires causes a vehicle to pull whenever you drive or brake. The good news is you can easily fix this by filling or releasing air from your tires until all four contain equal air pressure. If your tires are all properly inflated, inspect your van's brake pads to see if they're worn. These items wear down over time, and once they have reached a certain level of thinness, you should be encountering certain symptoms including to your van pulling to one side. Simply replace the brake pads with new ones and you should be good.
