I have a 96 all stock 2WD Astro Van-- been the family car for over 10 years now.
I do no tend to get attached to vehicles-- but I sure am partial to my old van.
It runs like a top, and has been from Florida to Maine.
I am going to put historic tags on her tomorrow.

Only minor problem I have had recently is an intermittent stall-- but I just checked and tightened all the grounding points, and hope that does the trick.

When I clean her up, she look almost like new.

Been garage kept all the years I have had her.

Look forward to learning things on the forum and hope I can share some of my successful repairs, etc. also.

Welcome to the site.

That one is old enough I'd check the ignition coil. They "leak" sometimes. I usually verify by misting them with water, watching for a light show.
