About Chevrolet Venture

Being identical with GM minivan siblings, the Pontiac Trans Sport, Pontiac Montana, the Oldsmobile Silhouette, Buick GL8, Opel Sintra and Vauxhall Sintra, Chevrolet Venture was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division between August 6, 1996, and 2004 as a minivan. Originally introduced as the successor of Chevrolet Lumina APV, Venture was much more conventional vans. But unfortunately, after being manufactured for only eight years, Venture was replaced by the Chevrolet Uplander.
Chevrolet Venture made its debut in 1996 for the 1997 model year as a 3/4-door minivan. It was offered in two wheelbases: standard and extended and it came in five trim levels: base, LS, LT, LTV (LT VERSATRACK) and Warner Bros. Edition. Featured standard features including antilock brakes, front side airbags, a tilt steering wheel and an acceptable quota of cup holders and storage bins as well as optional traction control, a power-sliding door, rear seat audio and climate controls and a load-leveling suspension. And as it was developed, the leather seating, rear parking assist, OnStar and satellite radio became available. But during its lifetime, Chevrolet Venture was powered by a 3.4 L V6 rated at 180 hp, which was increased to 185 hp after 1999. And this engine sent power through a 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels or four wheels.

Chevrolet Venture Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting impressive communicative chassis, sharp steering, nimble handling and spacious room for seven passengers, Chevrolet Venture is a top pick for buyers in the minivan segment. But as a vehicle made of steel, you could not avoid these common problems on your Venture:
First, engine failure caused by cooling failure becomes the worst issue that Chevrolet Venture drivers have ever met during driving. And generally speaking, cooling failure is the main reason that engine goes wrong and the reason to deteriorate the engine failure. Some Venture drivers said that if the coolant starts to leak, the engine will stay at a high operating temperature and keep overheating, which is harmful to the engine. You may see white smoke from the exhaust piper, bubbles in the radiator and white milky oil; at the meanwhile, you also could notice a decrease in power while acceleration and fuel economy. In case your engine fails completely, you have to make sure the Venture radiator, head gasket, intake manifold gasket, radiator cap, engine mount, air filter and oil filter are in good condition all the time.
Second, for Chevrolet Venture drivers, suspension failure is also difficult to handle and most important is most Venture owners have no understanding of this problem. They complained that it happened unexpectedly, which is not correct as you still could sense it from many recognizable and simple symptoms. First of all, clunking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle, which is actually the culprit of uneven and excessive tire wear and tilting vehicle; then you will feel uncontrollable about the vehicle due to intense car vibrating while driving, swerving or nose diving when acceleration and braking as well as a loose shaky steering wheel. Once these symptoms pop out, you are supposed to inspect the Venture wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing and steering knuckle immediately.
However, depending on solving common problems on your Chevrolet Venture is not enough to have a 100% safe and comfortable driving experience. Taking preventative measures to prevent problems from happening seems to be more effective and logical to have a satisfying shopping experience. On your Venture, there are many vulnerable auto parts that play an important role in creating safe and comfortable driving environment, but because they always work under harsh weather conditions, they are succumbed to wear and tear easily. Thus, please maintaining the seat belt, wiper arm, steering wheel emblem, windshield wiper, wiper blade, fog light and head light routinely.
