Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture
Your most likely problem is a bad head gasket.If you used the bleeders to remove the air from the vehicle and your are sure you got all the air out and you still have no heat and the coolant keeps coming out the over flow bottle.Then the head gasket is bad.Usually the rear head head.But I have also had the front head go bad.The best is to replace both gaskets.You should also have the heads checked to make sure they are not warped if the engine ran hot.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Open the hood and find the reservoir for the power-steering fluid. It will probably be labeled on the cap. If not, look near the belts for a pulley-driven pump with a plastic or metal reservoir on top.
Open the cap. It may unscrew or pop off.
Check the fluid level (see illustration in Step 2). If the reservoir is made of clear plastic, look for full and low indicator lines on the outside. The cap will have a small dipstick attached if the reservoir isn't see-through. Wipe the dipstick clean with a rag and put the cap back on. Remove the cap and check the level on the dipstick. Your car may have both full hot and full cold indicators, as the fluid level will vary depending on whether the engine is cold or hot.
Add power-steering fluid as needed, using a funnel to avoid spilling. If the engine is hot, fill to the hot line. If the engine is cold, fill to the cold line.
Put the reservoir cap back on.
