I have never heard of a major tune-up

All vehicle tuning has been done by
on board computers since 1980
some 30 years

Spark plug wires last the life of the vehicle
They only get replaced when they fail.
I had 1 wire fail in 46 years,personally

You do not have both an Ignition Module
as well as Coil Packs. They are installed
in two different systems

Any dash light you get & again they have
been there for 30 years,you retrieve any codes
within a couple days,diagnose code issues first
& repair. You have O2Sensor Codes
They wouldn't effect hard start problems

I would check fuel pressure with a gauge
Also Fuel Pressure Regulator

Vacuum Leaks
At least clean the MAF Sensor
Check TPS Sensor

Basically you need your vehicle tested in all
areas

There is a serious misconception that a
tune-up ,spark plugs etc are a cure all

I don't even start there when diagnosing
anything. You could throw away 2 plugs
& it would still start

I want to see what does work & how

Spark Plugs & other items you can get
from the vehicle history & past maintainance

2002 venture wont start when its cold and rainy


Probably not. If one of the sensors were faulty you should have a check engine light on and a trouble code for the sensor.
Have you checked the plug wires ?
And as a side note, I don't show a 2002 Venture mini-van having a 3.8 engine.

2001 Chevy venture intermittently running rough.


Check air filter. Check for any vacuum leaks. Check condition of plug wires. Were new plugs pre-gapped? If not, make sure the spark gap is correct for your vehicle.

2001 Chevy Venture hard to start and grey smoke.


In the older cars, before all the emission laws added so much electronic garb, black smoke meant a fuel problem and grey smoke indicated a problem with internal engine parts like piston rings. Hope this helps.

1997 chevy venture hard to start


"hard to start" is a very vague description of the problem. There are MANY things that can make an engine hard to start - ranging from a weak battery to a bad fuel pump, to worn-out spark plugs or a plain, worn-out engine...

The only "solution" I can offer at this point, would be to recommend doing some diagnostics to determine at least which system in your vehicle is the cause of the hard starting.

Replaced radiator in 2001 chevy venture now no heat?


the most commen problem with no heat is an air lock in the cooling system
when the vehicle is cold remove the rad cap
then there is a air bleed screw on the coolant pipe that goes across the front valve cover open the bleed screw about 3/4 to a full turn
use a funnel and over fill the rad into the funnel (this will make a mess)
make sure you have a steady streem of coolant coming out of the bleeder when you have a steady streem close the bleeder then there is a bleeder screw on the thermostat hosing open it and when you have a steady streem from it close that one then put the rad cap back on
and start the vehicle put your heat controls on VENT ,HOT AND HIGH BLOWER SPEED
run the vehicle and make sure you have HOT AIR COMMING OUT OF THE VENTS NOT WARM if its just warm then shut the engine off and open the bleeder on the pipe not the T-STAT HOUSING
keep repeating till you get HOT AIR COMMING FROM THE VENTS
top up the over flow bottle the rad will be fine
hope this helps

2000 chevy blazer starting issues


swng,
1) Is the service engine soon light ever on when engine is running?
2) Per your description I would look at the ECT sending unit. It sends coolant temperature information the the Engine Control Module for proper fuel delivery for cold engine start. It may have lost its calibration.
Let me know.
Regards,
