2005 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.

2005 Chevrolet Venture Reviews
i now have 148,000 mi on my venture. I replaced the power steering pump at about 100,000 mi as it began leaking around the shaft. I replaced the liftgate struts 5 months ago. These are the only things replaced. I am very pleased with it. I owned two Pontiac minivans before, and drove the 1990 176,000 mi and the 1998 over 201,000 mi.,with hardly any replacement parts. I have had extraordinary success with the GM vehicles
70,000 miles and getting better mileage than at 20,000. Only problem we're having are with the gaskets around the second row seat doors.
