2005 Chevrolet Venture Problems

Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid Failure May Cause Erratic Shifting

The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

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. 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.

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.
