Sounds like the old Dex-Cool problem. Check the level of the coolant in the radiator "not" the overflow bottle. If the intake or head gaskets haven't cooked yet you may be ok. Fill the radiator to its filler neck, remember to let the air out of the system by opening the bleeder screw located on the plenum inlet hose just forward of the radiator cap. Replace your radiator cap ! Make sure the return hose from the radiator overflow bottle is not kinked. Finally check your oil fill cap to make sure your not foaming from water in the oil.
If you're lucky you may be fine with this relatively cheap fix, otherwise you're looking at gaskets. Good Luck !

Has your intake manifold gaskets been replaced? If not try that. My over heated every time it stopped at a pight or sit still running. The gaskets are plastic and warp overtime. 500 $ fix

Start by replacing the engine thermostat, usually located on the block coming from the large top hose.. If that does not work remove the radiator and have it rodded out(cleaned). Still overheating after that, backflush the engine block.

Location of engine coolant temperature sensor on chevy venture 98


It is a 2 wire seneor under the throttle body. You will have to remove the air breather and it will be a brass/black plastic sensor. A 3/4 socket will fit it.Good Luck
