Get new fluid, pan gasket and filter.

Put vehicle on ramps.

Starting at one corner, use ratchet to loosen and remove bolts from pan. Be sure to have a drain pan directly under the corner that drops to allow fluid to be collected. Do not remove any bolt before loosening all the bolts first, and slowly work from the same corner. You do not want to bend the flange on the pan.

Drop pan out of the way, remove/clean away old gasket, clean up pan, and pan bolts, apply light coating of gasket sealer to flange and apply new gasket.

Remove and replace filter. Check pan mating surfaces on tranny and make sure they are clean.

Reinstall pan into place by starting all bolts before tightening. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS OR THE PAN WILL LEAK! Rotate around the pan, tightening each bolt slightly to no more than about 10 ft ponds of torque. A 1/4 inch ratchet is best used for this procedure.

Refill tranny with the amount of fluid removed into the drain pan.

This procedure will not replace any fluid in the torque converter, and generally most vehicles have no way of changing the torque converter fluid.

Why is my chevrolet venture suddenly increases rev and does not shift?

Low fluid is the main reason for this symptom. Check the fluid with the engine warm and running.

My 2000 chevy venture will not shift gears when pressing on the gas

Could be the shifter cable. Try taking it to a mechanic. This is a very hard repair without being at a shop. Should not be to expensive though. Thanks for asking!

I have a chevy venture transmission slip

You can try a fluid and filter change and see if it helps. But from your description, it sounds like it's
time for a rebuilt(or used)transmission. Sorry to be
the bearer of bad news. Good luck.

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.

2003 chevy venture transmission slow to shift from 1st to 2nd and then from 2nd to 3rd.

Probably due for a trans service--which is flushing the trans and replacing the trans fluid and filter.

Chevy venture runs too hot and the transmission slips when it runs about halfway on the temp. guage. what could cause that, is it maybe the dex cool antifreeze that came with it?

change the thermostat. the transmission cooler is part of the radiator itself,and if there is an internal leak in the radiator,it is possible you have dexcool in your transmission fluid.the transmission will show issues if that is the case.heve the transmission fluid looked at,check the coolant and change the thermostat and have the cooling system pressure tested especially if you have been losing coolant.
