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

    Dont remove the manifold. Its easier than you believe. The bottomhole of the thermostatholder is open.
    1. remove the airfilterholder and its 2 electrical connectors. Plus an airtube.
    2. get a straight size 13mm socketwrench. preferably with built in cogs (new style)and do it from above. Be careful so you dont destroy the threads.(its aluminium)Dont take the bolt away.

    Its narrow but it will work.This will take you a couple of minutes with the right tools. The upper bolt is very easy. You figure it out.

    One thing more. Change the thermostate from 91C to 88C, its better for the engine. Because of the emission GM wants higher temp in the engine. No good. The alu-block is very very sensitive. Also check if the electrical coolerfans works. Check the fan thermostate and the fuse.

Beside regulating the water flow to maintain correct coolant operating temperature part of the thermostat job is to restrict the flow through the radiator to allow the heat to be transferred to the cooling fins and to the air.. If the flow is too fast (no thermostat ) you will have boiling before you leave the drive way. If you have been doing work on the engine and have replaced the head gaskets it is common to place the gaskets on so that the air holes between the block and head are blocked by the gasket. If you have used after market gaskets then some do not have the necessary holes in the right places to allow the water to circulate around the head and the rear of the block

The heater doesn't work very well on my 2000 Chevy Venture van. I'm wondering if I should try replacing the thermostat. Or, it is all computer controlled now.


If heat gauge reads normal, stays in the middle, then you do not need to mes up with the thermostat. I own a 2000 Chevy Venture and changing the thermostat was not fan.
It may be the Temperature Control Module, which you can buy for $45 and replace without problem, or may be an partially obstructed heating core. The GM Dex-Cool antifreeze, the read one, has additives, but if you do not flush the radiator every 2 or 3 years, can result in partially clogged heater core. I have done on my car twice till now, and replaced with green Prestone, on my own risk. Hope this will help. If need more information let me know. A have the Haynes manual for Chevy Venture 2000, and I am a car dealer.

How do you remove the thermostat


Hi:
The thermostat is mounted under a metal housing on the top part of the engine. The upper radiator hose attaches directly to the thermostat housing. To remove the thermostat, you must start with a cold engine, and drain the coolant. next , remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing, and remove the bolts holding the housing in place. Remove the old thermostat, and install a new one, complete with a new gasket. Remember to carefully clean the mating surface of the engine and the thermostat housing, to avoid leakage. When everything is reassembled, fill the engine up with coolant, and start the car and check for leaks. After the car cools back off, check the coolant level and top off as needed.
