Well, your vehicle has a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds. See this link belowhttp://www.edmunds.com/chevrolet/express- cargo/2008/st-100946197/features-specs/ , so what are you loading in the van? Are you sure that you don't have transmission issues?

Yes, please answer Mark and let us know exactly what problems you are having and if you have an automatic be SURE to drop it out of Overdrive, or drop a gear and let your engine do some work. Lugging is one of the worst things you can do to an engine

Yeah I meat to the OP can you answer you, Mark, your question about having transmission issues. Bad syntax on my part.

Not to mention lots of people think every question is answered by a guy name of Mark helpful

the 4.8 can not tow 10,000 lbs. The 6.0 v8 would be a better choice for towing.
