1998 Chevrolet Venture LS 3dr Ext Minivan

Review

The Venture does fine until the coolant mixes with the engine oil, sometimes requiring a new engine. This seems to happen anytime after 40,000 miles. GM is not always willing to help with the costs, which can cost $4,000! The same plastic compound gasket is still being used as a Chevy mechanic has told me.

Suggested Improvements

Replace plastic compound gasket with a better quality gasket.
