    According to the reservoir, the coolant level is right where it is supposed to be. Is there another place I should be looking. The temperature guage will go all the way over to hot and then back to midways, then back to hot, so forth and so on.

I would highly suspect the thermostat, cost is about $12 for the part and some anti freeze. Good luck

More then likely, your low on anti-freeze. The heatin system in a car is simple. The motor heats up and uses antifreeze to cool. the warm antifreeze runs through the blower system of the heater. The hot antifreeze heats the blowing chambe which cause the air temp to rise. When the heater blower is engaged, it blows the hot air off the antifreeze chamber and warms the car. When your low on antifreeze, the car doesn't have enough fluid to keep the motor cool, and theres also not enough fluid to warm the blowers chamber. Just check your fluid and add accordingly, make sure to add antifreeze of about a 50/50 mixture. You can buy it premixed if your not crasy about dilluting it yourself. DON'T USE STRAIGHT WATER! It will corrode the cooling system and lead to EXTREMLY COSTLY repairs.

2000 chevy venture 3.4l overheating


Have you replaced the intake manifold gaskets? These engines have a history of leaking intake manifold gaskets. Water leaks into the intake and is burned off in the cylinders. If the engine overheats enough times, you will eventually blow the head gaskets.

Start by performing a compression check to make sure you haven't blown the head gaskets. Then make sure the car is really overheating (i.e. check the temperature of the engine with a infrared thermometer (they are cheap at Harbor Freight).

If it is really overheating, and you've really changed everything else, you need to change the intake manifold gaskets. Be sure to get the improved gaskets from the parts store (they have a metal core with rubber coating).

My 2000 chevy venture is overheating and the heater is not working


could be that you are low on coolant, this would cause you to not get any heat and also would over heat.

I have replaced the rad cap, water pump, thermostat and water pump heater on my 2000 Chevy Venture. The rad and heater core are good. The water pump heater was in for 2 days working great and now I'm...


first of all the water pump doesn't have a heater, all the water pump does is cycle water (coolant) throughout the cooling system, the heater is up inside the dash behind the glove box.

I would feel the two 3/4" heater hoses that run from the engine into the heater core, if both of them are hot (providing the engine is at full temp) it one is hot and the other is cold maybe the heater core is plugged.

Coolant leaking from 2000 Chevy Venture minivan. Doesn't appear to be coming from water pump. How do I diagnose the problem.


fill your radiator (with water if the weather isnt cold so you save money) and start your car. Pay attention to where the fluid drips out at this will help you pinpoint the location of the leak.

Hey Chevy Minivan heater dont work properly


Chevy made some weak intake gaskets on 3.1 and 3.4. My guess is that the intake gasket is weak and/or leaking and it is letting pressure out somewhere. At idle maybe the system pressure is to little to push hot coolant into the heater core.

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.

You should probably replace the temperature sensor first, make sure the car is indeed overheating.

If after replacing the temp sensor, and the problem does exist, then buy a flush kit, and back flush the system, it may be clogged.
