Question about 2006 Chevrolet Venture

2 Answers

99 venture has warning lights on at different times overheating,

Sometimes my venture overheats, just had a new rad installed. It has check engine light on , and now the Abs light. Don't know what to make of it. After my mechanic installed the new rad, I had the rad light on as well. The dealer said it needed a new head gasket , but the independent guy said just needed a new rad. Now I think the battery is having problems. At this point I've spent over $700 on the repair, and wonder if I should spend anymore?

Head gasket can be check by looking if our engine oil is like creamy color or if you open the radiator cap be carefull if you open when hot when the engine running if you see bubble coming out of radiator even after the engine cooling fan start that mean compression is escaping by a damaged head gasket its verry expensive remove head send out to get them strait reinstall $1,500.00 here in canada i hope its not that i did one last week head gasket blown engine was missing bubble in the radiator missing prestone what a mess i wish you the best of luck pierre p.s our rad light is because our missing prestone abs is probably our brake system i know its imposible to give you a fixya i hope i receive one good lock

What would make my 1997 Buick century to keep over heating I have replaced head gaskets and put in new thermostat


Let's start with the simple and make sure the coolant mixture was 50/50 and not 100% coolant. That will make it overheat.
Second, thing I would check is if there's a code for your catalytic converter or oxygen sensor. If your converter is clogged, then it builds back pressure that overheats the engine.
Hopefully that helps. That's all I can think about without actually having done the head gasket replacement myself or having inspected the vehicle. And make sure the heads were resurfaced and inspected as well.

Turn on head lights engine goes off


Have you checked for codes?

Have you checked the sensors for damage
or Tone Rings loose or broken

I would venture to say 80% of all brake work is
never done correctly,that sometimes rolls over
into damaging the abs system

1997 Venture ABS light is on but has no code reading


Not all OBD-2 scanners are created equal. Most only read power-train (engine/transmission) codes and are not capable of reading ABS codes. Some scanners even have a specific button you have to press to get ABS codes. Try a different scanner. I know places like Auto Zone will scan codes for free but not every store has the same reader. The AZ nearest to me has the ABS capable scanner while the one on the other side of town can't read ABS codes.

I have a problem with the focus next to the "check engine"... i dont know wich name is or how to explain that...but its like a low battery but it isnt because it is not...the focus its between...


There are only so many warning lights it could be. If it's not the battery or Check Engine itself it could be the Overheat sign if you don't have a temp gauge, Low Oil Light or ABS or Brake Light. If it's the ABS or brake light that is indicating a problem in your brake system or the Hand Brake is stuck. based on the location between the Check Engine and Battery lights my first thought is it is Low Engine Oil or Traction Control, commonly shown by a TC in a circle. Check your engine oil, Radiator fluid level and make sure you don't have the Traction Control turned off. I know in my mothers Malibu, which is a 2000, there is a button on the side of the shifter that you press to turn Traction Control and Overdrive off but I always that that was specific to the motor she had installed since it is a V8 that actually cuts to a V6 unless it needs the power of the other 2 cylinders. If you still have a question about that warning light describe what it looks like and I will see if I can identify it better.

The engine in my 99 venture van wont stop overheating?i have put a new thermostat in and assured that the cooling fans are working properly??anyone???


Your water pump may be defective. The impellor may be loose. When the engine is cool, open the rad cap & start the engine. As it heats up & the thermostat opens, look in the rad and see if you have enough circulation of fluid. If not, change the water pump. Check to see if the rad fins are not loose & in good shape. If not, change the rad. Pressure test the rad cap in order to make sure it is holing the proper pressure. Hope this Helps you. Good luck!

a failing ABS sensor is at fault, visually inspect wiring and also check each tire for bearing play, some sensors are a single unit ABS sensor built into bearing, if found play at any wheel that may be the one is failling.
