Driver's side power-window "chokes" everytime when closing. Glass tilts forward and needs to be pulled back at least twice to help closing. Goes down just fine. Anyone got the cure ?

My van turns and fires and is getting gas. It is in time but won't start. I think that it might be something electrical but not for sure. Could anyone help? Advice is really needed and appreciated. Thanks

#528 of 629 97 Chevy Venture shuts off
Aug 25, 2006 (6:25 am)
I have a 97 chevy venture, bought 3 yrs ago and had a new engine put in when it was bought. Recently it's been shutting off completely when I turn the steering wheel all the way left or right making it real difficult to get out of parking spots. Sometimes it shuts off after I start it and put it in gear. Once it shut off as I was driving, I put it in neutral to turn it over again (I was rolling down hill and there were cars I couldnt pull over) and it wouldnt turn on, until I finally got to pull over, stop it, then it turned over after several tries. Can someone please tell me where I should start looking!! Thank You

That sounds like what my friends van was doing. ( Is yours red?) Anyway her problem was the head gasket and a lot of things that led up to that going. They weren't real good about maintainance. Was the engine new, or used? Also, my husband says to have a proper cooling system flush done if it hasn't been.

#531 of 629 Re: 1997 Venture No Brake Lights and ABS Light Constantly On. [mcaracoglia]

Our 1998 Venture has done something similar. At first the backup lights and hazard lights on the dash would come on when the brake lights,and some times the abs light came on. Only when the head lights were on. The yesterday the brake lights went out, except for the third brake light. I found a pin on the plug to both tail light socket assemblies had melted. Did you find out what caused your problem?
#532 of 629 1997 Venture window will go down but not up HELP!!!!
Aug 29, 2006 (2:31 pm)
I have a 1997 Chevy Venture and the passenger power window will go down but will not go up, I have replaced the motor and the switch on the driver side and now I am at a loss of what to do? Please HELP ME!! Thanks for your time.

You may need to replace the switch, motor, and regulator in the passenger door also. If you have not replaced the regulator in the driver's door, I would do that because that window will eventually do the same thing. I am having a problem with my driver's side auto window right now. To put it back up, I have do raise it a little at a time, straighten it with my hand and put it up a little more. If you end up doing this, DO NOT hold the edge of the window too long (and don't let your hand slip) as it will really hurt your fingers. All these parts are dealer only but I have noticed that all these parts are on EBay.
#534 of 629 1998 Venture engine mount torque strut bracket removal
Sep 10, 2006 (3:55 am)
I am trying to remove the passenger-side engine mount torque strut bracket from the ENGINE. I have removed two bolts but the bracket will not come off. I have searched extensively but in vain for other bolts. Is there another bolt and if so, where did they hide it? If not, is there a trick to removing the bracket?
