    I have the same problem in that I wasn't getting heat but the temperature gauge went wacky too. Up to hot then right back down to cool and then in the middle, just moving quickly. The engine light came on too and then off again when the gauge went down again. The van had only been running for five minutes in the garage to warm it up. Two years ago, same thing and I went through one thing and then another until they finally did the head gasket. Before the head gasket, they did the thermostat, temperature gauge, a hose, water pump and then the head gasket. Every time they pressure tested it, they got something else wrong. They said they were trying to make sure it wasn't something smaller. I keep wondering if they were just getting all they could out of me. Anyway, yesterday the same thing and now it's in getting pressure tested yet again. I mean, does pressure testing it itself cause problems? Any one have any thoughts? I'd appreciate hearing them. The repairs were two years ago. I'm worried if it's the head gasket again?! Then what!? Can't afford a new car but maybe I should go to the bank and see what I can qualify for. I've had it less than four years, the first year I got it, the transmission went. I've put a lot in this van!
    Thanks in advance.

Check your coolant level...if its too low then it will not flow through the heater core correctly to generate the heat.

2004 Chevy express van 5.3 1500 AWD new water pump and thermostat but thermostat doesnt appear to be opening lower radiator hose is cold heater blowing cold air,could it bethe coolant temp sensor ?


could it be that you didnt bleed the system correctly... some new vehicles the radiator cap is lower than the thermostat causing an air pocket... you have to bleed this out... if there is a sending unit next to the thermostat housing pull it and see in antifreeze comes out.
also did yo put the thermostat in correctly ?
did you add almost 3 gallons of coolant and water ?

2001 Chevy Venture - My heat is not as hot as usual and blows cool when idle. Coolant level is fine. Temp Gauge isn't working.


Sounds like you need to have the cooling system flushed out then have them put a new themostat in it. If that dont fix the prob you might have to put a new heater core in it or radiator.

My a/c is blowing cool air on the pax side and, warm on the driver side of my Chevy Venture Van, what can I do, to fix this problem


The fact that its blowing cold on one side means that the AC system is working correctly . However the air flow is controled by vacuum actuators inside the the dash board . There controled by engine vacuum and open and close little dors inside the duct work that roots the air into the cabin . Unfortinatly there not always that easy to get to with out removeing the the dash .Look up under the dask try to follow the duck work it may be just stuck or a disconnected hose or a split hose But your AC system is working and this is where the problem is . Good luck with it

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

I have a Chevy Venture 2001 that has serious problems with the engine overheating. I already replaced the thermostat & antifreeze. When I drive it just a block, the needle on the heat dial jumps from...


You should probably replace the temperature sensor first, make sure the car is indeed overheating.

If after replacing the temp sensor, and the problem does exist, then buy a flush kit, and back flush the system, it may be clogged.

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.
