You could have a bad 2-3 shift solenoid, or related wiring issues in the transmission. Any Check engine light? Have it scanned. a good scanner can manually try to make the transmission shift. and of course the transmission could be going bad.

Like Timmy said, scan first. But these transmission burn clutches more often then solenoids. Yours is 13 years old, it had a good life. I have seen them fail way sooner than that. Mostly because of low fluid all the time.

Bring to tranny shop or repair shop, have it scanned for trouble codes, many electrical parts and solonoids in those trannys, possible it may just be a shift solonoid bad or needs adjustment, much cheaper than replacing tranny. good luck!

Sam,

I would start with a transmission fliud and filter service.

I would then have the trasnmission checked out by a transmission shop. The transmission most of the time has the direct drum band is starting to go. The shops can rebuild it no problem, This is a very common failure wiith the trasnmission.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2004 Chevy Venture will not shift into gear

Had neighbor look at this same problem. Turned out the shifter cable linkage near the top of transmission had popped off. They popped it back on and works but a bushing in the clip probably needs replaced. The neighbor rewched over engined top between firewall and engine and popped it back on.
Works fine but does needs a clip/bushing part and auto parts store has to get from Chevy

My 2002 Chevy venture van will not shift from second gear. It goes in first second and reverse fine. What could it be???


Time to rebuild the transmission,for any number of reasons

Usually people never change trans fluid at all or every 3 years
as required
Then you have a tran that is 12 years or older,so it's worn out

97 venture 4 speed electronic transmission not shifting into 4th


4th clutch hub splines are stripped off. GM didn't harden the splines until 2004 or so so the early model gradually wear to the point where they are so thin they strip off - and then, no 4th gear

My 2002 Chevy Venture rolls while in park. I accidentally hit the gear shift into park while moving.


when the trans went into park it most likley broke the small rod that engages park and unless you are a capable mechanic with a repair manual you should leave fixing that to a pro hope this helps you
