Question about 1998 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

When i try to start my 98 chevy venture minivan it turns over for about 20 sec then dies unless i pump the gas when i turn it over. what are all the possibilities of what could be causing this to happ

When a try to start the vehicle it starts for a min the dies if i pump the gas while starting it it usually starts right up. i thought it was the fuel pump. then i was driving and hit some bumps and the van died while driving. the fuel pump would not come back on, checked the filter it was fine. then checked the fuses and the ECM fuse was blown. changed fuses and it started right up without having to pump the gas while turning it over. it starts everytime now. was this the problem all along? or could my fuel pump be going out. also is there something that could have caused the fuse to burn out, or do they just do that over time?

Turning over is engine cranking, not running. I'm not sure I understood your post?
Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, 3.4L engine, 41--47 psi.
Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes yourself, at the least you need an obd2 code reader.
I'd want to check if system is running rich or lean?

SOURCE: Engine will die

There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine. 
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty. 
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy venture doesnt start

Not the IAC, or MAF, or 02

Does the Van Crank over?
Have you checked the IGN Relays? 1,2,and 3?
How did the Battery test out?
Anything below 11.9v battery is dead.
So I suggest that you do not throw any more parts and check the battery again.

loosing fuel pressure, have you replace fuel pressure regulator, if the regulator is bad, it will have not enough pressure in between the injectors and the regulator. the fuel regulator maintain a proper pressure so the injectors will spray the correct amount of fuel every time the computer tells its to. weak pressure will cause injectors not to spray correct amount of fuel into the intake although will cause your engine to starve for fuel just like you have explained. the parts cost around 135 bucks and easy to replace.

My 2002 chevy venture battery died going down the road


If the car cranks, but isn't turning on it sounds like it isn't getting enough fuel, When you turn your key into the on position can you hear the fuel pump turn on.. You may need to have one person stick their ear next to the fuel door while you turn the key to the on position.

98 chevy 2500 wont start after cutting off while i was driving


Turn the key to the on (not run) position and listen tosee if you could hear the fuel pump turn on (prime) for a few seconds. If not, check the fuel pump fuse and if its good, its probably a bad fuel pump.

How did it die? Did it feel like you were out of gas?

2001 Chevy Venture will not start. Turns over and tries to start


Spray "starting fluid" (AutoZone $4) into air intake. If it "starts better" then it is fuel-related. The gas in your tank may be contaminated. Whatever floated to the top is what is left in your tank. Add a gallon of new fuel, burn what you can and use a "complete fuel system cleaner" (AutoZone $9) when you fill-up.

Our 1999 chevy venture will die right after we start it unless we steep on the gas hard. Could this be the fule filter?


It does sound like you picked up some bad gas with **** in it. Check fuel filter and fuel lines for debris.
