notorious for the thermostat going bad just remove the air filter cover and rubber hose to get to it with a 13mm wrench but it needs to be at least 10inchs long to reach the bottom bolt, your irregular idle may be ignition coils so go on line find the 3 coils and plate they rest on http://www.acpartshouse.com/ListItems/MainCategory/Electrical.aspx best price i found, the fan issue shows if you turn on ac the fans will kick on but i need to find the senor that is doing the same thing on mine.

no the van will not over heat probably due to the thermostat being bad or opening too easily to allow easy low pressure high water volume flow to keep it cool
#2496 of 2501 rear stabilising bar bracket
Oct 20, 2011 (10:06 pm)
I have a Chevy Venture 1999 which has done only 128,500 Km. I was driving 60km/hr. when suddenly the (REAR) stabiliser bar bracket broke from the body of the car.
With the bracket broken it was difficult to control the steering as the car swerved violently.
I put this article to warn & caution other drivers of the problem with this year & model because if anyone was at a higher speed it could result in a severe accident or death.
I feel it is a manufacturing defect of some kind.
I would like to know if anyone has a similar problem as the company has said that there is no recall on the vehicle.
#2497 of 2501 There is a rubbing sound!
Feb 04, 2012 (8:58 pm)
My friend has a 2000 Venture that was making a loud rubbing sound from the front and the rear. They thought it was the wheel bearings. I replaced the front brakes and the rubbing sound coming from the front stopped. I drove it around the block and the sound started again. Now it has a squeak to it. The rear brakes still need to be replaced. What else can cause the rubbing sound in the front of the van?

tpj: it is more likely the stepper motor failure that controls the needle on your dash. They are ALL flawed. You can get new stepper motors on ebay for like $2 a piece. I had the same thing happen on 4 of all of my GM autos (2 Montanas + 2 Trailblazers) and EVERY time I replaced the stepper motor first and it was fixed. Do a search on "stepper motor" to find directions on how to replace it/them. PLEASE change ALL of them while you have the panel off, because they will ALL fail very soon. It's a stone cold fact. -Tony
