The Chevrolet Astro was introduced in 1985 as a larger alternative to family minivans of the day. It had an identical sister car, called the GMC Safari. Under the hood the Astro had a choice of either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, or a 4.3-liter V6 with either 165hp or 200hp. Changes were limited throughout the first few years until 1990, when four-wheel drive became available. Thereafter, a new dashboard was installed, and a new door-opening system. The second-generation Chevrolet Astro was launched in 1995 with a longer now and a passenger airbag. The Astro was discontinued in 2005. Haynes has an extensive range of Chevrolet repair manuals and online maintenance procedures to suit professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Chevrolet Astro repair manual will be able to help whether you're servicing or repairing your car.
