Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

1999 Chevrolet Venture Reviews
my power sliding is not work on my van so what do i fixed it i would like it to work again
An exelent car (mini-van 1999) 161,560 miles (260,000 klm)
still a"baby" rides same since I bought it new.
In an accident that the other car was coming behind me
on a about 100 klm/h while I was waiting holding my brakes hard and streched tight against my seat I got hit from that car a Chev Cavallier, went a " right- off" in bad shape and my Venture only chip
a little piece of plastic 1"x1" from behind under the bumber
the only damage was one seting of the 3 of the motorized
drivers seat, was on one motor that the bolt bend slightly
and got stuck, I have not fixed that yet, no need.
I do not neglect the basic maintenance and especially the oil-change.
