Question about 2001 Chevrolet Venture
JUST ASKING TO SEE IF 3.4L ENGINE ON MY 2001 CHEV VENTURE HAS AN IGNITION MODULE THAT CAN BE REPLACED. Need to do a tunup and just wondering if there is one to replace
There is a ignition module but it most likely don't need to be replaced unless there is no power to the spake plugs. Most common tune up will be the spark plug and wire set. the three front plugs will be eazy but the rear three plugs can be entertaining. Just take your time and change the wires and plugs one at a time. Buy platinum plug so you can get 100.000 mile before you have to change them again and anti seize so you can take the plugs out again.
You can go to the rear plugs from under the van, the maintenance book calls for the two front engine mounts to be disconnected and pulled forward to get to the plugs from the top, but that's not as fun as being under the van.
As for the Ignition module, they ether work or they don't, so if you don't have any weird idling and miss fires at all, then it's just do a plug and wire replacement, a good cleaning of the throttle body and new air and fuel filter. Don't for get the Oil and filter change too, here is a trick with the oil filter, buy the oil filter for the 4.3L vortec off a blazer 1996-2005. The filters are the same size but longer giving you a longer oil filter life.
Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted if you have more questions,
