Engine stalls when wheels turned
you have a bad power steering pressure sensor, seending you some info on it,The switch's function is to signal the PCM when the power-steering system exceeds its normal operating hydraulic pressure, like when you cut the steering wheel all the way to one side and hear that hissing sound from the pump. The PCM then raises the idle speed and/or disengages the air-conditioning compressor to prevent the engine from stalling.

Why does my transmission only engage sometimes on 98 venture
engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only
for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the
transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in
most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory
of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as
the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done
is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system
for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for
engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained
technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then
based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the
correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer
replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other
basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with
the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine.
The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear
engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related

THE LOW COOLANT LIGHT IS
The coolant level sensor is faulty.Replace the sensor and reset the computer by either pulling the ECM fuse out then put it back or disconnect the ground cable on the battery for 30 seconds or you can you can reset it with a scan tool.

1998 Chevy Venture, had shade
Yes if that plug he left in was bad or worse yet, if that plug that wasn't changed is actually missing. You need to check that all the plugs are actually installed first and also that the Spark plug wires are actually seated on each plug completely. Unfortunately a lot of "Shadetree" mechanics make the mistake of pulling on the wire itself to get them free and as a result damage the wires causing this problem. Another possibility is he has the coil wire loose or damaged or the firing order mixed up. The firing order is usually stamped on the intake manifold near where the air intake or carb are mounted to the manifold. The Distributor cap should have a mark indicating the number 1 position and the rest follow in clockwise fashion. The problem is this is the time frame that Chevy was switching between Distributors and Coil packs which are commonly square and a little more difficult to identify the actual position on. If you suspect the firing order and want to be sure beyond a doubt about what it is and which is which on a Coil pack I recommend you get a Haynes or Chilton's manual on your vehicle from Auto Zone or Advance Auto parts store, other Auto parts stores carry them as well anywhere from $12 to $20 dollars depending on your area.

I have a 98 Venture
well it sounds like you have an electrical problem as in a ground wire or connection. as far as the misfire on three only,have the coil checked and check that intake gasket around that cylinder with carb cleaner for air leak
