Question about 1999 Chevrolet Venture

2 Answers

Any recalls concerning the hollow cam in the 99 ventures?

I bought my '99 venture from a private owner and about 1 month after owning it the cam broe in half and I had to fork out $2500.00 to get it repaired. The mechanic had heard that there was some type of information that was out but that it had not been recalled. Has anyone heard about this problem and what can I do to find out? And after this has been repaired can I expect other problems?

    if the cam is broken ,, and the engine is still i car ,, i;d relace the engine it would be cheaper and better ,, sounds like u got a bad engine form a owner who rarely every changed the oil,, the engine is a very good engine with proper care,, should out last the car,, there are some updates that should be done for the next enigine ,, u should get the service bulltens from a web site or dealer!
