SOURCE: overheating

If you are adding anti-freeze every time this happens, you are still loosing coolant some were. I assume there are no puddles on the garage floor or where you park the van? Check the oil dipstick and make sure the oil is not a "milky"color. Check the passenger side carpet for wetness, you may have to pull it back.
If all of that is OK, you are still burning the coolant by way of the intake gasket or head gasket.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: cooling system

usually the thermostat will have a little hole in it to help the air out of the system. so let it sit for a few minutes and check the water fill it again leaving it just a little bit low. then run the engine with the cap off untill you see the water circulating through the thermostat. shut it off fill the radiator and your done.

SOURCE: where is thermostat on 2001 chevy venture van with v6 engine

under the intake plenum, which will have to be removed before you can access the thermostat.
I suggest having it done by a garage mechanic.

I have an 2000 Chevy venture and my temperature gauge is going way past the middle but van isn't running hot I have already changed the thermostat


Air pocket in cooling system is a possibility however the 3.4 liter gm v6 is also famous for the lower intake manifold gasket going out as well as head gasket issues. That engine is difficult to bleed air from as the bleed valve is not the highest point of the engine. Raise it in jack stands, bring to operating temp and Crack the bleed valve open until no air comes out then close. Repeat and make sure to keep water level uo. May take many tries to correct. If it turns out the intake gasket is gone or the heads have to be done make sure to get the upgraded gaskets used since late 2004. They are reinforced with a better material.

Have changed the water pump, thermostat, radiator, radiator cap, all hoses. 2001 chevy venture, still running hot? How long does it take to bleed the cooling system?


If the system fills via an expansion tank, I would recommend removing the top hose from the radiator and filling the system by pouring the coolant in through the hose until it begins to flow out of the upper radiator port. Reconnect the hose and then fill the expansion tank. That should take care of it.

How to bleed the brakes on a1999 chevrolet venture van instaslled new brake pads on front tired to bleed brake pedal all the way up when van not running - goes to floor when van is running


Start with brake in the rear that is the farthest away from the master cylinder ( if your master cylinder is on drivers side start with passenger rear,pump up brake pedal until hard have someone else open bleeder valve until air or fluid squirts out,while holding brake pressure even if goes to the floor dont release pedal until bleeder valve is tightened or you will **** air back into the line,do this several times making sure you get a full stream of brake fluid and no air,continue to other rear wheel and then proceed to front wheel furthest from master cylinderand then final wheel. if you still don't have brakes change master cylinder and bleed all brakes again.

Ac clutch not engaging ac is blowing warm air but system is fully presurized on 02 venture van


pull connector off by evaporator can and cross a wire between the connector holes to close the circuit and this should keep the clutch engaged to let the freon go all the way through the system. If the vehicle was just reserviced the gauge will show full but it has not been pumped through the orifice tube area to the coil that cools your van interior. hope this helps.

Have very little to no heat in my 2001 venture van do you think its possible to be the head gasket or just thermostate


The thermostat is a good place to start if the only problem you are having is little heat.
Before you start removing the stat, check the following things:
-is the coolant level full?
-is there coolant leaking onto the ground?
-are the heater lines that run coolant into the cabin hot?
-is there excessive white smoke coming from the exhaust?

if the level is full and there is no leaks or white smoke, and the heater lines aren't very warm, then change the thermostat....but be careful when you fill the system back up with coolant. there is a bleeder valve on a black post on the water pump housing that needs to be opened to get the air out of the system. if your van has rear heat, which most do, the air will be harder to get out. a good trick that often works is to take the hose off of the bleeder tower and fill more coolant up there. also drive the van a about 5-10 miles and the check the coolant level. do this a few times until your heaters (front and rear) are throwing good heat.

be patient with the bleeding of these, it takes some time.
