#39 of 49 Front wiper pivot jam
Jul 20, 2007 (9:48 am)
I'm trying to sell my '98 Venture but my front wiper are currently stuck. The driver side pivot is the problem. So i bought a used set of the pivots (which also includes the whole linkage) but i'm unable to undo the motor from the assembly.
The problem is the T30 screw of the moving part. I can't seem to be able to unscrew it without the motor turning on me... anyone has the right trick to get the motor out fo the way ??
Thanks a million.

Can anyone tell me how to get the old fuel filter out so that I can replace it. I bought the tool to take it out but I cannot figure out how to use it.
#41 of 49 1997 Venture tune-up cost
Oct 24, 2007 (11:33 pm)
Hi there. I have a 1997 Venture that runs pretty well. It has just started to get a little noisy when it runs and I think it could use a good tune-up. It has 340,000KMs but 300,000KMs of that is strictly highway driving so not a lot of engine wear.
Any ideas on what I should expect to pay for a good tune-up?

#43 of 49 FIRECRACKERS??? 2000 CHEV VENTURE LS IN NEED OF HELP!!!!!
Nov 04, 2007 (10:20 am)
FIRECRACKER POPPING SOUNDS UNDER FRONT END
CAN ANYONE Help!!
I have a 2000 Chevrolet Venture LS van with 120k miles on it. It has recently started making a horrible popping noise under the front end(i call it firecrackers as this is what it sounds like).
I 1st noticed it while idle at stop sign 1 day. I had to look around for kids.... thinking someone had lit a box of firecrackers and thrown them under my vehicle. It stopped, only to return lasting longer and louder.
Thanks in advance for your comments & suggestions!

Not cheap - Good tune up includes:
Fuel & air filters
clean MAF sensor & throttle body
and the big killer - change the spark plugs.
My mechanic said just plugs & wires were over $ 600.00 including labor. The labor is the biggie, they have to rotate the engine forward to get to the rear plugs. I'm going to try to tackle it myself in the spring, good thing the plugs only get changed every 100K miles. I like our Venture but boy is is a pain to work on & when the mechanic does it the labor charges are brutal....Took me all day to change an alternator, can't imagine what that would have cost!

#47 of 49 2002 Chevy Venture - Rear Compressor/shock
Mar 17, 2013 (4:45 pm)
2002 Chevy Venture, compressor seems to be running more than usual and at random times.
Took a look underneath, rear driver's shock is leaking fluid. Am I safe in assuming that the leak in the shock is an air leak as well and causing the compressor run more than needed (and if the shock is replaced, should do the trick?)
