1990 Chevrolet Van G-20 Cargo 350 5.7L from North America
Loads of power / loads of problems!
Electrical problems of all sorts: turn signals wouldn't work.
All indicators and functions light up all the time on the dash. Both turn indicators constantly lit. Headlight indicator stays on.
Intermittent wipers erratic and slow.
Wiring inside multi-function lever (turn signal) overheats and started to smoke.
Short in wiring from radio to speaker.
Blower motor intermittent.
Washer pump weak.
Several problems with anti-lock brakes.
Occasional hard starting and very rough idle.
Almost constant exhaust steam year 'round.
Takes forever to warm up in winter.
In spite of all the problems, this van is a real powerful and smooth rider.
I would rather drive this cross country than my old Caprice.
The seats are well contoured and provide the right support.
Is there anyone with a GM vehicle that doesn't have pulse windshield wiper problems???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have an 1990 Chev G20 conversion van that has about 190,000 km on it. I have had absolutely no electrical problems. The front end and the heads seam to be a weak spots on these. This last summer I rebuilt the motor because the heads were cracked, and I was burning about a liter of oil every 150 km. I put an R.V. cam in, and flat head pistons. What a difference in performance, and fuel economy, now I get about 24 mpg.
