Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture
How do i remove the thermostat from a 2000 venture?
Hi there your venture needs a thermostat you need to let engine cooldown and open drain on the bottom of the radiator drain coolant into a clean bucket as so you can reuse it drain about a 1/2 gallon ou of the rad . then you need to locate upper rad hose and follow the hose back towards the motor where the hose meets the motor there will be a thermostat housing rad hose will be attached to it.usually 2 or 3 13mm bolts holing down housing you may want to spray a little wd40 on it to help free corroded bolts , once you remove this housing take note if there is a gasket and try to remove housing as not to damage gasket there will be a thermostat positioned into the hole with a seal or gasket ontop of it remove seal and take mote of the orientation of the stat spring facing the engine so install new stat acording to the position of the other one being removed . once in position then tou need to reassemble with the new gasket or seal making shure all seall areas are clean of debris bolt it down even torque on all bolts after this is completed replace coolant that u removed . now with the new stat inflace then you need to run the van for 15 min with cap open and this will let out any air pockets that were created when you disassembled good luck let me know how it went thanks all the best work safe
