Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

The hood will not close on my Chevy Venture (2002)

I popped the hood accidentally. I went to close it and it will not close completely. The only thing that is keeping it down is the latch. How do I make a adjustment on the mechanism to fix it?

    I have already done this. Is there another adjustment I can make?

  • tagye1 Jan 31, 2009

    yes it does. I just did that and stayed down. I released it from the release inside the car. Still wont close!

  • tagye1 Jan 31, 2009

    still does not work. I put them all the way up, and all the way down.They were in the middle. What next?!!

First thing to do would be to lubricate it well & work it with a screwdriver or similar, as well as cable where its attached to mechanism, it may not have snapped back to latch position yet.

    Does the latch part catch & hold if you use a screwdriver as your hood catch?

    Try adjusting bumper stops down on either side of rad support or on fenders.

    Does the latch have the 2 bolts, 1 on either side that you can loosen and move latch upward slightly until it catches properly. Something doesn't seem right that you should have to do all of this just because of popping hood once. It worked fine before that correct? Your 100% sure something isn't bent, & release at latch itself is all the way back where it should be right?

    Great, make sure they (bolts) are tight & hood doesn't bounce up & down when you push on it, otherwise adjust bumpers to eliminate that. there should be a happy medium where hood is down good & aligns with fender too.

How to change driverside c-v joint chevy venture


You don't change the cv joint. You purchase a half shaft left or right side and you replace the whole axle shaft they are around $150.00. Take off the tire, remove axle shaft nut, remove spindle from lower ball joint and pull the axle out of spindle then you take a large pry bar and carfully pop the axle shaft out of the transmission. Very easy job only takes about 1 hour to for complete job.

Hood latch


Try spraying the latch mechanism with WD-40 or similar light oil and operating the release cable a number of times. Check the condition of the release cable if nothing happens. The latch itself may have a broken spring due to the low temps.

as far as i can find out no recall on hood latch. you can check with chevy they may have not listed it publicly.
it could have been caused by the latch mechanism slipping a little out of position and not latching completely. check it for allignment upon closing after repair.
