Chevrolet Astro owners have reported 12 problems related to ignition (under the electrical system category).
Vehicle has repeatedly starting running poorly and has a lack of power along with a misfire. Vehicle is then hard to accelerate and slows down flow of traffic. Each time the distributor cap and rotor have been found with excessive amount of corrosion on them and when the cap & rotor are replaced the problem goes away for a while. The cap & rotor were changed 3 times each before 50,000 miles.

Van willnot start at times. Moisture is getting into distributor and shorting out the ignition. In the 63000 miles I have driven this van the distributor and rotor has been replaced 2 times due to failure. Rotor has big black burn on plastic near electrode.
The brakes went to the floor and after being pumped a few times actually slowed the vehicle down. This has happened a few times but unable to reproduce at dealership. This vehicle has been to shop too many times for many items including side door rattles, ignition problem with security feature, windshield ect.

I have had a number of problems with this vehicle: both the left and right power windor motors; replace the key remote, both idler arms,front brake pad at 37,000 miles, serpentime belt, power steering pump - replaced twice, had to fix oil cooler lines twice, replaced distributor/rotor; replaced lower gasket due to intake manifold leak, and fuel pump modual. All of this was done before my car had 57,000 miles. The dealer has been very fair and repaired at low or now cost. I have had two trips shortened due to breakdowns and have spent over $1,500 on repairs not covered under warrenty or by the dealer. This is in addition to normal maintenance (oil and filter,four new tires,and transmission fluid and filter). I am concerned as to "what is next" and when the dealer when no longer be able to fix these problems at low cost to me.
