SOURCE: 2004 Chevy Venture will not shift into gear

Had neighbor look at this same problem. Turned out the shifter cable linkage near the top of transmission had popped off. They popped it back on and works but a bushing in the clip probably needs replaced. The neighbor rewched over engined top between firewall and engine and popped it back on.
Works fine but does needs a clip/bushing part and auto parts store has to get from Chevy

How do I remove the alternator from a 2001 Chevy Venture Van

Remove negative battery cable and remove the strut mounts from the top of the radiator header.Then fold the mounts with the brackets toward the engine .Then use a turn buckle like tool and use it to pull the engine toward the front and make sure it is secure .Reach ,and feel to remove the bolts from the alternator.Remove the drive belt,some applications require the removal of the power steering unit,but u may not have to.Note the bracket on the alternator will have to be removed before the removal of the alternator itself.Do not remove transmission linkages from wiper assembly.There are two bolts ,short one,and a longer one you can not see,You will have to feel for them.Loosen the pivot bolt first and remove if possible,if not remove it after you can turn the alternator around to do so..Remove the other bolts from the alternator and remove alternator from engine compartment.

I have a 1999 Chevy Venture van. How do I get to the back/bottom 3 spark plugs to change them? I have alread changed the front/top 3 plugs?

Pull out the 2 long bolts that hold your motor mounts together, and then carefully jack the rear of your motor up from the bottom by the oil pan. You should now have enough room to wiggle your ratchet back there.

How do i change the back 3 spark plugs on a 2004 chevy venture?

take the front motor mounts loose and lift on the transmission pan with a jack and a block of wood, this will cause the engine to rotate forward and allow for more clearance

2004 chevrolet venture battery light on

Chances are the alternator is failing and needs to be replaced soon. If there is an Auto Zone around your area or you have a volt meter, with the engine running. Place the volt meter to the battery and you should get a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts. With the engine not running, the battery fully charged should read 12.5 volts. If you have less then 13.5 volts on the battery with the engine running, chances are the alternator has gone bad. The other thing to look for is a blown fuse or broken wire at the alternator, such as thew ignition wire to the alternator.
The alternator does come out from the top. You need to loosen the motor mount and rock the engine forward and secure it. Then removed the windshield wiper module cover, and you should have access to get it out.
I recommend for safety reasons, if you are not a experienced mechanic that you take the van somewhere for that service. When it comes to rocking engines and securing them, you are better off having a professional doing it for you.
Good luck

Changing spark plugs in my 1996 lumina van with 3.4L engine w a/c it looks like a bear of a job, cant even see plugs from under neith

To access you rear plugs, you need to disconnect the front top engine mount, then put the vehicle in neutral and pull the engine forward (with a large pry bar) and lock the engine to the mount base using the engine mount bolt. Don't forget to chock your wheels so the vehicle doesn't roll away. And really, the job isn't difficult at all.

Passenger power window powers down not up

If you can do it, run a jumper from the drivers door to the passenger door. Unplug both motors. try to run the passengers door off the drivers switch to rule out the motor. I don't think it is because the motor is dc. But this is the common point. Please mark this as helpful or fixya. Shuold you have anymore problems, I used to be a mobile mechanic electircian. Looking forward to hearing from you.
