Question about 2002 Chevrolet Venture Passanger

What to do? Buy 2002 Ventura Van or put more money into Taurus Wa

I'm looking at a 2002 Ventura Van and since I have never owned one would like to know some questions I should ask before purchasing. It has 86,000 and I can buy it for $1,000.00. I have to borrow the money for this and do not want to have to go borrow more money to start doing repairs. I would have to certify it. I am driving a 95 Taurus Wagon with 263,000 right now that I have redone the transmission, transmission seal, new starter, new battery, new muffler system, now it needs all new brakes and spring coil is broken. Approx: cost is $1,000.00 in repairs. I'm torn between putting the money into the Taurus or buying the newer car. Please help as I'm a single mom who has to have transportation. Thanks Debra

Thats a hard call to make without seeing the van. thats alot of miles on the wagon i would not recommend putting to much money in it.you need to have a good auto tech look at the van before you buy someone elses problems.

What does it mean when there's no water circulation to the upper hose on a 2002 Ford Taurus wagon and is there a lower thermostat for the lower hose that circulates the water from bottom to top?


There's only one thermostat and if your not circulating antifreeze the thermostat is either stuck closed or your cooling passages are clogged did anyone put stop leak in the motor if so they put in a lot and the engine is blocked buy change the thermostat and see what happens

I reset the button for the fuel pump on my 1999 Ford Taurus and the car still will not fire. Where is the fuse for the fuel pump located and size


To check to see if your fuel pump is working have someone run the ignition key while you listen at the fuel tank of your car, remove your fuel cap put your ear next tank hole and then have your helper turn car on but just so the dash lights up not to start the car.You should hear the fuel pump actuate or hum for a second or two,and if you don"t hear a hum then move to the fuses and if they are good move to your fuel injectors then check your plugs wires and Cole pack. The fuel pump relay is in the fuse box under the hood of the Taurus next to the battery its a black box and is the main power distribution box for your car. The fuel pump fuse is number 10 (A) in the power distribution box. On a 1998,1999 you can swap the fuel pump relay (B) with the EEC power relay (C) to check to check fuel pump operation.the best way to check your car is to use a OBD 2 car reader.hope this helps but you can also buy a Chilton manual if your willing to get your hands dirty and have some mechanical ability you can save your self a lot of money.I believe the going rate for mechanics now is about $105 dollars an hour and thats here in WA.State.

I just got a used taurus ford (99 model) but i wanna know what faults of defects of this kinda car......moreover the owner fixed the switch but i hope it wont be a recurring problem.


Having owned a trans repair shop in the past.

The Taurus was a large part of my business, after the Caravans

Recently saw on the internet, where the average life was about
60,000 to 80,000 miles on your transaxle. I guess I lived that,
without noticing my customer mileage

I wouldn't keep it long, and never buy any van type vehicle,don't
take a free one,I won't ride in one,they will hurt you, in an accident
