The intake manifold gaskets are prone to leaking. The next thing is the water pump, then look closely at the head gaskets especially the rear head gasket on the passenger side. The area is hard to see so use a pressure tester to force a leak.

My 2001 chevy venture van has a misfire as i drive what could be the problem


THESE VAN ARE KNOW FOR INTAKE GASKETS LEAKING INTERNALLY,CAUSING A MIS-FIRE. LOOK UNDER THROTTLE BODY AREA FOR COOLANT LAYING IN THE GULLY IF YOU SEE ANYTHING REPLACE INTAKE GASKETS FIRST. IF NOTHING IS LEAKING SPRAY SOME SOAPY WATER ON THE SPARK PLUG WIRES WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING AND CHECK FOR ARCHING, IF ARCHING IS FOUND REPLACE THE PLUGS AND WIRES.

The Service Engine Soon light came on. Could this be something serious or just a reminder that I just hit 80,000 miles and I should take it in. I had the oil changed and fluid levels checked and belts and...


Service engine soon light is alerting you that a code is stored in your computer. If not checked out it could be something that will have an effect on other parts and may cost mor to fix. Most auto parts stores will check it for free.

Chevy venture van overheating the temperature gauge will go to the last white mark on the gauge then it will drop as i'm driving it. it will keep doing this.


It sounds like the coolant level is getting very low. Only check it when it is cold! Check the level in the radiator and in the overflow bottle. Chances are you have a leak somewhere, these vans had problems with intake manifold gaskets. A big job.

2000 chevy venture overheating and low coolant light on when coolant is full


There is a heat sensor located near the thermostat that goes directly into the block. Get a Haynes or Chiltons manual.

The thermostat is probably bad and causing your overheating. If that is not hte problem, then it would probably be your water pump.

Transmission leak


The hoses are called "transmission lines", and you are correct they do go from the transmission and connect to the radiator. Most any auto parts store should be able to order them for you, but chances are most won't have them in stock. Your best bet to find a auto parts store with them in stock would be napa. Otherwise, you local chevrolet dealer may have them in stock.

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
