Please, please, use the new topic subject box responsibly. You might have seen people at work abuse email subjects too.

Avoid vague subjects like "Please help!", "I'm stuck", "Need a favour", or "tranny problem" etc.
Descibe what you're talking about as specifically as you can.
For example: "Transmission won't shift to 4th", "Where do I find XYZ" etc.

You are not the only member in the forum, and your post will be in a list with many others, so make it easy for people to scan through them. Humans like to know what they're getting into, because they don't like wasting time. It should be common forum courtesy, and it will probably get your question answered quicker.

I'm not pointing any fingers, and it's not a problem here, but just something to keep in mind.

Cheers :cheers:

New member Dave Butler.

I'm currently running two Astro / Safaris - A 1999 GMC Safari AWD and a 1991 Astro shorty with 310,000 miles on it (I drove 'em all)

My hobby is vehicles - I have two other M-Vans - a 1991 AWD shorty parts truck and a 1994 extended Safari.

The other vehicles are a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport, a 1970 C30, a 1967 G20 V8, and a 1977 Ventura.
1999 GMC Safari AWD - 174,000 miles since new
1991 Chevrolet Astro 2WD shorty - 310,000 miles since new!

Greetings Ya'll,

I'm hoping that I haven't misunderstood about this forum, & that Data /help, can be gathered for a 2007 Chevy Express Cargo Van that I'm rebuilding for My Work.

Or,.... Is this forum all about those little AstroVans? :rolleyes:

Hi @ChevyExpress2007
Welcome to the forum. We love photos.

As the name of the site suggests, this forum is for all General Motors vans.
If you look at the main page, you will see that the forum is divided into sections. Each van model gets its own section, and you should post to the correct one. (I will move your diagrams question for you). Good luck with your project!
