2001 Chevrolet Van 1500 Express 4.3 V6 from North America
Would not buy another one like it for sure
Coil pack needed to be replaced around 40,000 miles; seems to have broken loose in its housing. This caused intermittent stalling and starts.
Oil pump needed to be replaced around 50,000 miles.
Had problem with the computer, being in the engine compartment, allowing water to splash on it and running off the windshield down on the computer. Had to replace the computer. That gets pricey. I bought a new one from a parts dealer, programmed and ready to go. Cheaper than OEM!
Rear wheel seals replaced twice.
Distributor needed to be replaced at 50,000 some miles. Gear worn down to thin metal.
Brake line corrosion caused the lines to need to be replaced.
Needs the engine rebuilt because of cheap GM intake gaskets. Allowed antifreeze to leak into the oil, causing the oil to gum up like jello. A known GM intake gasket problem again. Oil galleries need to be flushed and bearing replaced at 68,000 miles. Replaced pistons and rings, because of piston slap while having it apart.
Overall the vehicle is pricey to keep on the road.
It's making me re-think buying another GM van.
This vehicle also has the paint peeling; a known issue GM that ignores.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
