#41 of 145 Chevy Venture 2002 failure to start
May 18, 2008 (7:29 am)
Hi, I have a Chevrolet Venture 2002 and I have a strange problem.
When I start up it works great but if the engine become hot if I shot off the engine and I try tot start again it didn't start at all. I have to wait to cool down the engine almost one hour and after that to try again. Everything works.
I was to the mechanic I change the starter and the ignition relay but the problem is still come.
Do you have any idea? Any help will be great appreciated.

Sounds like the crankshaft position sensor is failing...lots of them have failed, you wouldn't be the 1st or last....

Thanks I read on Internet about crank senzor. It seem this is the problem. All the symptoms are presents.
Thanks a lot.

Ok, after I checked the CPS it seem it is not the problem. So....
My Chevy starts very well when is cold but it did not start when is hot. I mean I have no power for the starter so the engine did not turn so it is not the CPS the problem. I change the starter and ignition relay and I have no idea what could be the problem. All the display indicators seem to be O.K. No alarm.
Why I don't have power to the starter when the engine is hot? Its start right away when the engine is cold.
Thank you for yours answers.

Just a thought. Check the under hood fuse box. There should be a relay for the ING or starter. These, I think, are the smaller relays and they go bad or weak. They are fairly cheep and just replace it anyway.
My fuel relay was this way. Hopefully this is it.

There are 3 reley, the same type, one for starter. I allready did this.
It could be just a wire but onestly I don't thing its a wire problem.

'01 Venture LWB
2 year old battery
Sometimes when we try to start it, dash goes crazy, nothing happens under the hood. Return key to "off" position and try again and it starts just fine.
Any ideas why?

Hi: I took the van to our local Chevy dealer who said the problem was caused by a corroded electrical connection for the fuel pump motor. The dealer replaced the corroded connection and we haven't had any problems in the two or three months since. I won't feel better until next winter when the cold weather returns and the problem doesn't! Hope this helps, good luck.
