    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.

I have a 2000 Chevy Venture van and the heat when turned on blows cold. For a while it was still blowing out warm air thru the back vents but now it is all cold. The van wouldn't warm up at all e

needs the water system back flushing out, heater being cold is its blocked up some time a few back flushes and forward flushes with a hose pipe should free up the dirt inside, same with the engine and radiator. there are meany videos on you tube to help you understand how to back flush you engie. but do the radiator and engine and heater separate so the muck does not go back into the engine.

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

Chevy astro van heater blowes only cold air

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.

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.
