2000 Chevrolet Venture Problems

Power Window Switches May Fail

One or more of the power windows may stop working due to a failed window switch. Failed switches will require replacement.

Rear Lights May Not Work Due to Rear Light Socket Plate Failure

The rear light socket plate may fail causing a brake light or other rear light to stop working.

Intake Manifold Gaskets May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil.
