2002 Chevrolet Venture Problems
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. 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.
One or more of the power windows may stop working due to a failed window switch. Failed switches will require replacement.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.

2002 Chevrolet Venture Reviews
Nothing but problems with my van that has 82,000 miles. Just about anything that can go wrong, that is expensive to fix, has gone wrong. Never another GM car for me after this nightmare. Japanese car, here I come. Worst car I have ever owned.
I'm really hating this choice in vehicles.
We bought our van two years ago with 92,000 miles and now theres 144,000 miles. We have used this van for ever thing from general uses, our small bussiness, to family trips since we have had it the water pupm when out, the rear wipermotor, and a couple other small things. We love our van. It roomy for 6 kids, great on gas (22 mpg highway) I would buy another one
This vehicle has been my worst nightmare. I have had it for 5 years and have spent thousands each year replacing the same parts. Catylist Converter twice, O2 sensors twice, head gasket twice and a number of other things. This is a crapy vehicle and Chevy should recall and replace
