We've had to replace the thermostat on our 2000 Venture van twice

We've replaced the thermostat on our 2000 Venture van twice since purchase. The first thermostat was a GM product; the second was a Canadian Tire unit. This is the second winter for the CT unit and it has failed! Is this a defect with GM?

I cant get much heat in my 2000 chevy venture


check if your thermostate is working... is it having troubles getting to operating tempurature?
check your heater lines that run to the heater core and see if there is heat getting to and from the heater core if the thermostat is running properly...
if you have heat running to and from the heater core then check and make sure your heater controls in the van are switching between defrost and heat and floor properly
could be a heater box problem ....
when i had the same problem with my venture it turned out to be a plugged heater core and i replaced it

The heater doesn't work very well on my 2000 Chevy Venture van. I'm wondering if I should try replacing the thermostat. Or, it is all computer controlled now.


If heat gauge reads normal, stays in the middle, then you do not need to mes up with the thermostat. I own a 2000 Chevy Venture and changing the thermostat was not fan.
It may be the Temperature Control Module, which you can buy for $45 and replace without problem, or may be an partially obstructed heating core. The GM Dex-Cool antifreeze, the read one, has additives, but if you do not flush the radiator every 2 or 3 years, can result in partially clogged heater core. I have done on my car twice till now, and replaced with green Prestone, on my own risk. Hope this will help. If need more information let me know. A have the Haynes manual for Chevy Venture 2000, and I am a car dealer.

2000 chevy venture overheating and low coolant light on when coolant is full


There is a heat sensor located near the thermostat that goes directly into the block. Get a Haynes or Chiltons manual.

The thermostat is probably bad and causing your overheating. If that is not hte problem, then it would probably be your water pump.
