Check to make sure you have enough anti-freeze in the van. The radiator should be filled to the top (left hand side of the engine bay right in the front) and there should be enough in the overflow tank (right hand side of the bay) to hit the COLD line on the tank. Note: Don't check the radiator unless the engine is cold and only use the same colored liquid as what is in there. If it is factory, it should be Dex-Cool, which is orange. If the anti-freeze is fine, start the engine and turn on the air conditioning and make sure the fan behind the radiator is spinning. The ideal temp on the gauge is usually between 1/4 and 1/2.

If you are leaking anti-freeze or have a very low level, the lower intake manifold gasket might be bad, which is a recommended mechanic fix. Start with the anti-freeze and make sure that's not the issue first.

Chevy venture radiator cap won't come off


Well that can be true but you can't be sure without running some tests.
Did you get the cap off ? Is the radiator full of coolant ?
Was the radiator fan running when it was showing hot on the gauge ?

Cant stop a 201venture van from over heating the heater works the van dont run hot but wen the heater dont heat the motor runs hot


When your not feeling heat coming from the heater it usually means that the coolant level is too low in the radiator. It sounds like you have a coolant leak somewhere which is causing your overheating problem. Fill your radiator and let the engine run for about a half hour with the radiator cap on tight. Then turn off the engine and check for any leaks under the van. If you don't see any leaks under the van then see if the carpeting is wet on the passenger side of the vehicle. If the carpet is wet and it smells like anti-freeze you have a heater core that is leaking. I hope this helps you. :)

Our 1998 Chevy Venture is overheating. All fluids okay.


if you are not sure if it is the fan motor you can disconnect the plug to the fan and run a jumper wire with a positive and ground from the battery to the fan plug and it it comes on than the motor is good. and you have a bad wire or sensor. and one easy fix for that would be to get a toggle switch put it in the cab and run wires to a power sorce and then to the fan wires. i have done it once so you would have to keep an eye on the temp and turn the fan on manually. that would be a cheap and temporarily fix

Overheating


If you are adding anti-freeze every time this happens, you are still loosing coolant some were. I assume there are no puddles on the garage floor or where you park the van? Check the oil dipstick and make sure the oil is not a "milky"color. Check the passenger side carpet for wetness, you may have to pull it back.
If all of that is OK, you are still burning the coolant by way of the intake gasket or head gasket.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Chevy Venture Overheating


Almost sounds like the same symptons as my van. Turns out the guage was not the problem. The van was in fact running hot because the electric radiator fans were not kicking in when the engine was hot. I replaced the relay switches for the fans. There are two of these in the fuse panel under the hood. There has been no problem with overheating since

2000 Chevy Venture Van has been overheating. The temp will spike all the way up and then quickly drop again. Back and forth like that.
