#121 of 145 Re: 2003 Chevy Venture Crank Shaft Postion Sensor. [kerrick1]
Sep 14, 2012 (4:56 pm)
my crank but no start after warm was the cam position sensor, solved it. then after the water pump went it started to happen again. the coolant shot everywhere and assumed it hurt the sensor again. put another in and seemed to work again. still once in a while will get a funny start but maybe other issues w/TPS or IAC.
I'll get to them some other day, for now only real issue is gas gage and sometimes the coolant temp gage not reading correct. I always thought might be a wire to the instrument cluster. a wire behind the brake pedal? I'll look under there once I have a chance. also traction control issues once in a while. sometime "service traction control" message which means to me just turn it off. need to check/clean brakes soon will check connections then.

I have a 2005 chevy venture has always ran great, shut it off today and it would not start again. All the lights still worked, battery was good, starter checked out fine. My mechanic checked all the wireing and was puzzled. I tried my spare key. Guess what it started just fine.So try your extra key before you pay a ton to have someone look at your van. Hope this helps you out

was happening with my key and my wifes key. I thought it could be the anti theft but fought this for almost a year before I got lucky and got a cam position low code. again we still get some funny starts but so far IMHO, that is what was stopping fuel.
only $30 sensor and (1) screw but impossible without removing power steering pump which is not easy. damned front wheel drives!

The van periodically is not starting. You turn the key, it makes sounds like it's going to start, but doesn't. The lights and radio are fine so doubtful that it's the battery.
Someone mentioned moving/pushing the van a little then trying to start it. That worked once yesterday.
Any ideas as to what this could be?

Try cleaning the throttle body. Take it of and hold it up to a light. You should be able to see light. Use brake cleaner, it works well for those kind of jobs. I did the same for my venture and my trail blazer.
#129 of 145 Chevy Venture won't start..??
Feb 01, 2013 (3:17 pm)
I have a issue with my van that i cannot for the life of me figure out. A week ago it was running great, I shut it off and it sat for 2 days in freezing temps. I go to start it and all it does is turn over and make popping noises from out of the engine. It sounds like it wants to start came pretty close a couple of times but it will not turn over at all. anyone have any advice?
