Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture

2000 Chevy Venture - Front vents will not open to blow warm air

Not a blower issue, speed steps up and down ok. Engine also heats up normally without issues, not thermostat (thank God, what a pain!!).

Examination of switch revealed that the system is producing vacuum - when vacuum lines connector was taken off back of control panel vent switch the pressure was released in long hiss of air rushing in.

I am not sure if this is caused by extreme cold - possibly moisture in a vacuum line? I am not sure if the same problem that plagues air brakes might apply. No changes after long drive and entire engine compartment and firewall is heated up. Maybe the switch is getting vacuum but not working properly?

This car has been driven HARD for nearly 300,000k miles but never had any serious problems.

Thanks!

    My van does not blow out the air right either. You can hear it blowing but not much comes out of the vents. I thought it was blower motor and it isn't. This along with multiple problems with my 2000 chevy venture.

    Well, it appears that the filters for the cabin were plugged, regardless of the fact that they looked OK! I wrote the date on them this time so that I know when I replaced them last. I checked inside for debris and didn't find anything. I clean out my K&N filter more often then I change those cabin filters out.



    It still does not seem to move air as well as it should, even with the passenger side vents closed. Not sure what to look at next.

    Where are the linkages located? I have a 2000 Venture and the dash vents do not blow much air. Resistor is good, heater core is good, blower is good.



    It seems like the vents just arent opening up like they should, but I dont know how they work and can't find any info.

2001 Venture has similar problem primarily when defrost selected. Found that linkages for vent selection (under dash on driver side) were worn/loose and thus did not travel their full range of motion. Not repaired yet, just band-aided by adding a rubber band to pull on the defroster vent linkage to assist. Works ok for now.

In your glove box there should be a trap door with TWO filters in it...they are SIDE BY SIDE, my guess is they are plugged up with ****, evey one cleans one but there is another one to the left...My 1997 venture has air coming out all vents, floor and top of dash...cant find the problem but I left the filter out and closed the little access door in the glove box and it has helped a lot

Heater not blowing hot air


when you operates the heater button worm water of your engine's water jackets enter to the evaporator locates inside your A/C blower & air flows through it & air becoming worm. Therefore I proposed you to check your vent linkages for vent doors inside the blower unit.

2004 CHEVY SUBURBAN FRONT A/C WORKS BUT THE REAR DOESN'T TURN ON


There is a blower motor control processor for the back blower - it takes input from the front control and the rear control and decides the fan speed. That processor could be faulty, or the blower motor, or a 30amp fuse in the engine compartment.
In the front system you have a controller and blend doors that direct air thru the heater core and evaporator. You would need to check the operation of those blend doors.

Replaced radiator in 2001 chevy venture now no heat?


the most commen problem with no heat is an air lock in the cooling system
when the vehicle is cold remove the rad cap
then there is a air bleed screw on the coolant pipe that goes across the front valve cover open the bleed screw about 3/4 to a full turn
use a funnel and over fill the rad into the funnel (this will make a mess)
make sure you have a steady streem of coolant coming out of the bleeder when you have a steady streem close the bleeder then there is a bleeder screw on the thermostat hosing open it and when you have a steady streem from it close that one then put the rad cap back on
and start the vehicle put your heat controls on VENT ,HOT AND HIGH BLOWER SPEED
run the vehicle and make sure you have HOT AIR COMMING OUT OF THE VENTS NOT WARM if its just warm then shut the engine off and open the bleeder on the pipe not the T-STAT HOUSING
keep repeating till you get HOT AIR COMMING FROM THE VENTS
top up the over flow bottle the rad will be fine
hope this helps

Why my heater in 2000 plymouth breeze only gives a little heat? Could it be a hose ? I know it's not the thermostat,the blowers ar working. I am wonding if theres some hoses that could be leaking?I don't...


it could be the cold air blend door or the thermostat is the engine temp up to the middle of the gauge or close to it if so then thermostat is ok if not then go ahead and replace it.

Hey Chevy Minivan heater dont work properly


Chevy made some weak intake gaskets on 3.1 and 3.4. My guess is that the intake gasket is weak and/or leaking and it is letting pressure out somewhere. At idle maybe the system pressure is to little to push hot coolant into the heater core.

2000 Chevy Venture not blowing any heat but engine is overheating. Could it be my water pump?


I would highly suspect the thermostat, cost is about $12 for the part and some anti freeze. Good luck

1990 Chevy Corsica heat issue


I think your on the right track with the vaccum/heater issue. Its not the core if its just not blowing out of the right vents. Find the plunger on the side of the hvac box that controls the selector door by squeezing the plunger by hand to see if it changes what vent it blows out of. If it does change when you do this, its a vaccum issue between the plunger and the vaccum bar. Trace the vac line from the plunger back to the bar, I bet you find your problem.
