#377 of 629 Re: Chevy Venture (2001) temperature gauge not registering [jordreg]
Dec 18, 2005 (6:08 pm)
Hi, im currently having the same problem. I have a 2000 chevy venture and all of a sudden in the last couple days my temperature gauge wont move. If i drive for like one hour or more it might move slightly. I have some heat but its very little. I find that having it on recirculate the inside air moves the gauge faster. Have you figured out what happened with your vehicle and if so could you email me, i was under the assumption that it was just a thermostat. Ive had non stop problems with mine since we bought it. thank you.

Interesting, last month, I did the head gasket on my 2001 Venture, last summer it was a boss on the A/C condenser that mysteriously cracked. Now I'm getting a really bad noise and vibration coming from the tranny. I've changed the fluid and filter twice in the last 3 weeks. What ever came about from your issue?

#381 of 629 Error Message on CD Player
Dec 29, 2005 (12:08 pm)
I have a 2000 Venture Van, and the cd player has quit working. The error message says "Check CD", but there is no cd in the player. This message flashes continually, whether the van is running or not; also makes a grinding noise. Has anyone had this happen??

Nothing yet. I've come to know of two GM mechanics (through friends) and I am hoping to access information before going to court. I figure that I need something solid that says that the problem is not uncommon before a judge will say it is not acceptable and make them pay. Hope you got GM to pay for at least half of your head gasket because that problem is definitely documented . . . they paid for half of mine at 84 000 km after I wrote to the District Manager. If I go to court for the transmission I might ask for more for the head gasket because it is such a recognized problem.

We have a Chevy Venture that is a 2005. Also have had numerous problems including the drivers side window not working properly (rolls down only when it wants to), the cup holder does not stay in, the cig lighter plugs where you plug in a cell phone charger not working, the front drivers side door panel falling off, the front head light filled with water, the windshield making this awful noise and now my cousin got her foot stuck in my sliding side door and could have lost her leg. Chevy is refusing to fix these problems or address the safety issues. I absolutely regret buying this van. Anyone who is considering buying one should run in the other direction now!

97 99 gm models have major problems with fuel pumps. Its a small switch that runs the gas gage that fails. Cost 700.00 to repair.

97-2000 GM fuel pumps are junk. expect to pay 700-800.00 to repair.
#386 of 629 No heat at floor vents
