Got a 2001 chevy venture 3.4.. got 2 codes po171 & p1189. An my temp gauge jumps never over heatin but going down. Any suggestions?

171 is bank one lean. 1189 is the oil sending unit. Start with 1189. Replace the oil sending unit. They always fail. Never had to fix wires for these. Probably leaking oil anyways. 171, Two places to look on these 3.4/3.1 engines. First is the vacuum lines and rubber fittings. Best to check them all, but bank one is one the radiator side of the engine. Also the intake upper plenum is known to crack around the bolts. Use WD40 . start the engine and spray it around the intake. If it starts running better, you have a crack or bad gasket. Fix as necessary.

2003 Chevy Venture Warner Brothers Edition Mini Van 140,000 miles. Head gaskets blew yesterday. $2700 quoted to repair. Is it worth it to repair? What are other know issues with this model at this mileage...

what is the condition of the rest of the van? how does it ride, steer, shift and so on?
$2,700 is a lot less than replacing the whole van and you could end up buying someone elses headache if you go used..
if it ran really well before the gaskets went i would invest, if it had other issues i would trade it in

I have a 97 Chevy Venture Van with a weakening fuel level sensor.

No it's not, if your van is running fine, fuel pump is good, just the fuel gauge sending unit is bad, to repair, the gas tank will have to come off, the sending unit sit on the same hanger the fuel pump is on.

Need help with oil light

If your oil light is on, then it'll mean either your oil level is below the recommended level; the oil pressure sensor is bad, there's a leak somewhere reducing the pressure of the oil); the oil pump is faulty

2001 chevy venture oil sending unit

On a problem with oil pressure sensor leaking.
99% you need to replace the sensor with a new one.
Because if you can see the leak is not for the tread or gasket of the sensor.
If you can disconnect the the wire from the sensor.
and try to start you will see the leak coming from inside on the plastic, where the pins. of the sensor.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.
I work on Cars everyday.
Thank you fo use fixya.
