Question about 2001 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

Running "rough" My 2001 Chevy Venture currently has 108K miles on it. Today, it started running rough, feeling like it was about to die during idling and taking off very slow, running rough and bumpy. At around 20 mph it seemed to get smooth and normal. My instict is to get the spark plugs, plug wires and distributor cap changed as it feels like misfiring plugs, but I'm not certain.

I had the same issue with my venture. It turned out to be the number 5 plug wire, backside of engine ended up breaking out of the plug carrier and burning in half on the manifold. Your best bet is to trace all the wires to start off with and change the plugs. If that doesn't help, it may be internal. Good luck

2001 Chevy venture intermittently running rough.


Check air filter. Check for any vacuum leaks. Check condition of plug wires. Were new plugs pre-gapped? If not, make sure the spark gap is correct for your vehicle.

Very rough idle and low rpm and flashing service engine light.


Don't think it's major could be any number of sensors. Any autozone will run a free scan and point you in the right direction.
