Best type is the 180 rated thermostat. best to use the the A/CDelco, Stant, or Gates thermostat. Make sure that if you do buy the aftermarket thermostat, it has the gasket with it like the GM OEM thermostat.

Your going to have to remove the air intake tube & throttle body and exhaust cross over heat shield, then the two bolts hold the housing in place. Remove the top bolt and slid the housing out after you have disconnected the hose. When reinstalling be sure the thermostat is seated or you will break the housing.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

You will have a rubber gasket on the 2002 venture and not a gasket. I have had my Venture since 2002 and I do not use sealant since the rubber gasket seals the fluid in the thermostat housing. Most of the other directions noted are right except that you only have to take out the upper themostat housing bolt and leave the other bolt in the intake housing. The thermostat housing has a slot to allow you to remove it straight up if you have removed all items that are in the way.

On the chevy venture there is a know problem with the lower intake gaskets leaking and it causes a air leak in the system. this will cause a problem with your thermostat and cooling. also heating problems.
The best bet is to look at the lower corners of the intake to see if you see coolant leaking if not it is possible the leak may be internal is your oil milky color?.

Need diagram of where thermostat is located on 2002 chevy venture


If you follow the upper hose to the metal housing on the drivers side of the engine the thermostat is behind that housing.

A 13mm socket, some extensions, ratchet, 13mm wrench and a lot of patients will be needed. Its not impossible to do but as you get into it you will think so!

I am looking for the thermostat in my chevrolet venture 2001, and if possible i would like a drawing of it so i can locate it thank you


if you follow the upper radiator hose to the engine you will find a clamp on the end of it that you will want to take off and under that is the thermostat housing there are two bolts that hold the housing in place that you will have to take out to get to the thermostat and so you can put the new one in. its takes about 45 minutes.
