Wont run once it warms up then won't start unless I keep pressing throttle

have the PCM scanned. Check for cooling system codes , sensors thermostat, & emissions codes. When a car runs LEAN after warming the cooling system plays a vital role. Vacuum leaks will also show up in emission tests. Good luck, Frank M

Check engine light came on is still on in my 2002 chev venture warner bros ed.Van P0446 code

Evaporative Emission Vent System Performance. the emissions system on these ventures suck! good luck. It basically means the fumes aren't going where they are supposed to be going and if you live in a county or state that requires emissions testing, it will not pass until you get it fixed. other than that you probably wont see any other problems, you might smell gas but like i said those are just fumes not going to the right place.

Check engine Light (emission Control System)

wait about a day and let the car dry out some. Then reset the check engine light by unhooking the negative cable from the battery for 15 minutes or more. Hook it back up and see if the cel even comes back on. It probably wont but if it does, go to parts store and get the code and go from there. Shouldnt be a big deal, car is prob ok. Just get code if it does happen to come back on and reveal the year, make and model of the car and the code. But you need to reset the light 1st to see if it comes back on.

Where is evap emission

Your evap emission system is your pressurized fuel system. If you are getting a check engine light and the scan is throwing an evap code start by changing your fuel cap. It is the cheapest part of the system and quite common to fail. Unfortunately if you change your cap and erase your fault codes and the check engine light returns for evap system again, you will probably end up at the dealership to track down the leak.

System not ready...idle varies from 1000 to about wont pass emiss

I changed the Idle Air control Valve and it lowered the idle speed for about a week, when you remove the old one make sure you don't move the valve spring rod because will need to set the new one to match. I spoke to a mechanic and he told me that it may be the Catalytic Converter causing the issue. I haven't had that checked yet but the (IACV) didn't solve my issue.

2000gc wont accelerate... Fuel filter??

Change the filter first and see if that helps, if not, have a fuel pressure test done.
Also check all the vacuum lines for bad hoses, all it takes is a pin hole in these damn emissions systems to screw up the whole system.
