Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture
It is more than likely your valve cover gasket. I am assuming you have the 3.1 engine in your venture and Chevrolet was notorious about having faulty valve cover gaskets. However, the replacement gasket is metal and will not crack apart like the one that came out in your engine. You will have to have a dealership or a mechanic fix the problem for you. I had the same problem as you are having and it was the valve cover gasket. It should cost around $600 to fix.
It would probably be beneficial to go ahead and replace the head gasket as well since they will have the engine apart anyway. It is better to go ahead and do it when you are replacing the valve cover gasket than to wait and if something were to happen and the head gasket go out. Then you will have to pay to have another valve cover gasket put on as well. Hope this helps.
